    Time To See A Specialist

    It's difficult to decide when the time is right to get more help. Deciding to see a specialist is a difficult choice for some. When did you decide the time was right to see a specialist? What questions did you prepare for your specialist?

    See what Dr. Smith says about When To See A Specialist .
    Our minds are as different as our faces: we are all traveling to one destination; --happiness; but few are going by the same road.

    After a year of trying we were sent to a specialist for testing. I am not sure what others found. I asked what could be causing our infertility issues, particularly after we'd already successfully had one child. I asked what we could do to better our chances, and I asked if they thought we'd be successful.

    Thanks for asking and for the wonderful post by Dr. Smith.
