When couples find out that they are having difficulty with having a baby, they first go to their gynecologist for treatment. Though the latter may be the first choice when it comes to treating infertility, they aren’t really specialists in this particular field and don’t have the necessary training for it either. Today, infertility treatment technology is progressing at a very fast pace and not being in sync with these advancements, can result in a gynecologist causing more harm than good, to his patients.
There are certain common mistakes that gynecologists make when they are treating infertile couples. Take a look at what these are:
It’s also not uncommon to see gynecologists badmouthing IVF and some make it a point to discourage their patient from opting for this treatment. They just don’t want to lose their patient, and go out of their way to highlight the risks of In Vitro Fertilization.
They don’t deal with their patients with empathy and are clueless about the emotional turmoil that these patients are going through. They don’t follow any detailed treatment plan and treat patients on a cycle-cycle basis.
Get a second opinion
The biggest downside to all of this is that the patients end up harboring false hopes and waste a lot of time. So, what then are patients supposed to do? Do they just avoid going to a gynecologist altogether when they need help with getting pregnant? Not at all. In fact, your gynecologist should still be your first source for advice and its still important to get a second opinion from an IVF specialist.
