Dr. Adamson shares how a woman can advocate for herself when she goes to see a fertility doctor.
Dr. David Adamson:
Well I think it’s really important for couples who want to have babies when they decide that it’s time and if they are having some difficulty to go to the Web and to get some information. Read up on infertility so that they have some idea about their own reproductive situation. Go through their history and see if there’s any things they can identify that may have contributed to their problem and write these things down so that when a woman goes in to see her doctor she has a basic understanding of how things work.
She has reviewed and documented what her medical history is, and also she has talked with her husband and they know what they want to do or don’t want to do and what their objectives and limitations are. And with all this information she can give it to the physician who will be able to give her really good advice about the best way to approach the problem so that hopefully they will soon be pregnant and have their family started.
