Reproductive Endocrinology Q & A

What is reproductive endocrinology?

Reproductive endocrinology is a medical specialty that focuses on infertility treatment. Infertility is when you haven’t conceived after trying to get pregnant for one year, or six months if you’re over age 35. Additionally, infertility means not being able to stay pregnant after conception. 

Infertility is a complicated, and oftentimes frustrating, condition. But just because you’re diagnosed with infertility doesn’t mean you can’t ever get pregnant. The highly trained reproductive endocrinology team at Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers can help. They offer compassionate and comprehensive care for infertility.

What does a reproductive endocrinologist treat?

The reproductive endocrinology team at Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of conditions that contribute to infertility, including:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) 
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Recurrent pregnancy loss
  • Congenital uterine abnormalities 

But infertility isn’t only a women’s health problem. As often as not, infertility is due to an issue with the male partner, such as a low sperm count. Your reproductive endocrinologist has expertise in treating all aspects of male and female infertility, including issues with hormonal imbalance. 

How is a reproductive endocrinologist different from an OB/GYN?

Reproductive endocrinologists complete an OB/GYN residency and continue to pursue additional training, including a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and fertility. They also pass two board exams, one in obstetrics and gynecology and another in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.   

Because of this extensive training, reproductive endocrinologists are qualified to provide fertility treatments using assisted reproductive technologies (ART), such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and egg freezing. However, they may release you to the care of your primary OB/GYN after your pregnancy proves to be healthy and stable. 

When should I see a reproductive endocrinologist?

The team at Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers sees patients for a variety of reasons. Some people want to explore options for fertility preservation, such as egg or embryo freezing, before they undergo a procedure that can affect their fertility, such as cancer treatment. Other couples seek treatment after being diagnosed with infertility.
