When to Get a Second Opinion from a Fertility Specialist

When to Get a Second Opinion from a Fertility SpecialistYou don’t want to leave something as important as your fertility to chance. The physicians at Dallas IVF believe that patients should be proactive about their reproductive health, which may involve seeking a second opinion from a fertility specialist. Wondering when you should look for a second opinion? Our DFW fertility clinic provides some guidance.

There are a few signs that you should get a second opinion from a fertility specialist

Our DFW fertility clinic team realizes that not every patient will need a second opinion from a fertility specialist. You might find your dream doctor on the first try, but not everyone is so lucky. You should visit another fertility doctor if you encounter any of the following warning signs.

  • Your fertility clinic doesn’t offer the latest reproductive technologies. Top-tier clinics offer advanced fertility treatments, including egg freezing and IVF with preimplantation genetic screening (PGS). You want a fertility center that offers cutting-edge treatments and doctors who know how to use them.
  • You meet with a different doctor at each visit. It’s important to build a relationship with your fertility specialist, but that can be difficult – or impossible – if you never see the same doctor.
  • You’ve exceeded the recommended number of treatment cycles. Sometimes, it will take more than one IUI or IVF cycle to get pregnant. However, after undergoing multiple cycles without success, your doctor should start suggesting other fertility options.

You should never feel guilty about switching doctors

Some patients are reluctant to visit another doctor. They worry about offending the physician or they think that it will be too much trouble. Our DFW fertility clinic wants you to know that your fertility is important and you should feel comfortable with your doctor. You deserve the best care and peace of mind. If your fertility specialist or clinic doesn’t provide these things, it’s time for a second opinion.
