Though some people believe this to be true, a fertility specialist is not an ob-gyn. They need certain credentials to receive their title, which then allows them to diagnose and treat infertility. Ob-gyns can perform evaluations and provide basic treatment, but infertility experts are specially trained in extensive details that help to determine different causes of fertility.

Infertility is deeply frustrating, striking at the very core of who you are, what makes you human, and how you feel about your body. Many couples spend years taking pregnancy tests at the very first sign of a pregnancy or missed period. Some begin testing as soon as the woman ovulates. So the faint pink or blue line on a pregnancy test can spark jubilation, especially if you’ve previously seen dozens of negative tests. Yet false positives do happen. Medications can cause false positive pregnancy tests, turning your hope and jubilation into despondence and disappointment.

Women are often diagnosed with infertility based on how long they have been trying to get pregnant without seeing the results they are hoping for. If she has been trying for at least one year (or for 6 months if she is over the age of 35), she will be diagnosed with infertility. She may also be considered infertile after multiple miscarriages occur. Female infertility is the result of age, physical problems, hormone imbalances or issues, lifestyle, and environmental factors.

Can a gynecologist test for infertility? The answer might be more complex than you expect. That’s because infertility is a symptom, not a single diagnosis. So while your gynecologist might be perfectly qualified to test for, and even treat, certain types of infertility, your gynecologist doesn’t have the skills necessary to treat other forms of infertility. And because a person can have several different factors playing a role in infertility, even if they do have a type of infertility a gynecologist can treat, their doctor can easily miss other forms of infertility.

One in eight couples struggles with infertility. Nearly 12% of women have sought or received services for infertility. Infertility is tragically common. It’s also shrouded in secrecy. Many couples choose to suffer in silence, thanks to cultural stigma and messages about what infertility means. This can make infertility a deeply isolating experience.
