    A miscarriage can be devastating. Women who have tried for a long time to get pregnant or who were relatively far along in their pregnancy may feel deeply traumatized.

You don’t have to spend endless months crying over pregnancy tests in the bathroom, though. The right fertility specialist can help you get pregnant quickly, safely, and as affordably as possible.

    For people trying to become parents, the road to pregnancy is always longer than you hope. Even if you’re one of the lucky few who gets pregnant on the first try, the two-week wait can be agonizing. For couples with fertility issues, that two-week wait can turn into a one-year wait that takes you through many emotional highs and lows and medical twist and turns.

    Waiting for that second line to appear on a pregnancy test can feel like the longest three minutes of your life. If you wait month after month with no results, it’s easy to feel demoralized. One of the most persistent and harmful myths about fertility issues is that fertility is a matter of luck. If you’re unlucky enough to be infertile, then it’s untreatable without costly procedures that are unlikely to work anyway.

For couples with infertility, the absence of two lines can come to feel like a sign of personal failure. Month after month, frustration can turn to exhaustion, depression, and deep sadness. Infertility can be deeply isolating, but you are not alone.

    Infertility can be deeply isolating, but it’s actually very common. Sixteen percent of couples are unable to get pregnant after a year of trying. Eight percent are still struggling after two years. One of the most frustrating aspects of trying to get pregnant is the age factor. Remember learning to ride a bike or read?

    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.

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.
