Fertility doctors receive special training in reproductive issues and are uniquely qualified to assess and treat various problems that can affect your ability to become or remain pregnant. During your first visit, your doctor will perform a physical exam, review your medical history and lab work, and ask questions about your lifestyle, work, family medical history, and chronic diseases. In most cases, your doctor will recommend one or more tests to help him or her identify problems that impact your fertility. After discussing the test results with you and your partner, your fertility doctor will suggest a treatment plan to address your fertility issues.
