It is not an easy task to find a doctor that is a complete fit for you. On top of the overwhelming amount of options you are presented with, the subject matter that you are dealing with is already stressful enough as it is.
It may be startling that you have to turn to the option of fertility treatment. Most people want to find that immediate answer to their questions, and watching their friends have it easy makes the process even more frustrating. It seems like an incredibly extraneous approach to go to a doctor for help when it comes to something that should happen naturally. Yet, everyone has a different reproductive system. It just doesn't always work the way you think it should.
