Reproductive Endocrinologists Fertility Specialists

The reproductive endocrinologist has even more training than the OB/GYN doctor. These doctors have completed all of the requirements of the OB/GYN physician just discussed plus two to three additional years of fertility and reproductive procedure training. They are members of the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (socrei.org). They may choose to become board certified by the American College of OB/GYN in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility (acog.org).

The primary role of the reproductive endocrinologist is to help you create your family. Most women use these doctors when they need additional assistance to become pregnant or avoid recurrent miscarriages. The reproductive endocrinologist is trained to diagnose and treat both female and male fertility issues. Of course, these doctors prescribe fertility medications and carry out advanced laparoscopy and hysteroscopic procedures. In addition, they can also boost your fertility with inseminations, in vitro fertilization (IVF), sperm injections, donor egg programs, and other advanced reproductive technologies.

Once you become pregnant, the reproductive endocrinologist usually cares for you and monitors your progress during your first couple of months. By the end of your first trimester, the doctor will refer you back to your OB/GYN physician for routine prenatal care.
