Despite this unattractive name, do not despair, modern medicine can help solve this problem. To do this, you need to contact a fertility specialist who can help find a way out of this situation. About how to prepare for the first visit to this doctor and will be discussed in the article.
General information about the specialization of a fertility doctor
First of all, it is worth finding out what the reproductive doctor is responsible for, because such specialization is relatively new in medical practice. Reproductive medicine in the world began to develop from the mid-70s of the last century, but this branch of medicine has entered the active phase in the post-Soviet space in the last twenty-five years. Reproductive medicine is exploring alternative technologies that can cure infertility and give spouses a chance to learn the joy of motherhood and fatherhood.
At first glance, it seems that reproductive therapists need only be aware of the reproductive technologies used, but this judgment is deceptive. A good fertility doctor should have exceptional knowledge in the field of ultrasound diagnostics, know the subtleties of the human endocrine system, as well as be ready to constantly improve their knowledge and thorough analysis of modern technologies in medicine.
Modern medicine identifies more than two dozen factors of female infertility, and a little more than a dozen and a half - male. The most common cause of female infertility is obstruction of the fallopian tubes (20 cases per 50 infertile women), followed by violations of egg maturation (30 cases out of 100). Among the causes of male infertility, almost a third of cases account for a decline in the quality and quantity of male semen. According to statistics, 70% of married couples have problems with the reproductive system from both women and men.
Depending on the cause of infertility, the reproductive doctor chooses the appropriate treatment and technology for the implementation of the task of reproduction. To determine the exact cause of using modern methods of surveys, however, this does not mean that the desired reason will be installed instantly, as a rule, 3-4 months are given for its determination.
