How do I go about finding a Fertility Specialist?

Finding a Fertility Counselor

If you are a woman under the age of 35 who has been trying to conceive a child for the last year, you may be a candidate for infertility treatment. If you are a woman over the age of 35 who has been trying to conceive a child for the last six (6) months, you are also a good candidate for infertility treatment. But how do you go about finding an Infertility Counselor?

Infertility Counselors are specialists who have received additional training and education in the treatment of infertility. The best sources for referrals to Fertility Counselors include:

  • your Gynecologist
  • family and friends who have undergone fertility treatment
  • your State's Medical Association
  • your State's Professional Licensing Board or Quality Assurance Board
  • your local Better Business Bureau
Each of the entities can have specific information about Fertility Specialists in your area who are qualified to address your fertility concerns and provide appropriate treatment. Ask questions, do research and make up your own mind about a fertility clinic and specialist who will assess and treat you.
