Ep 201: Decoding the Alphabet Soup of Medical Abbreviations – OBGYNs and REIs

The amazing breadth of knowledge offered in your OBGYN office (obstetrics and gynecology), and the subspecialty expertise provided by an REI (reproductive endocrinologist) play a key role in your first fertility appointment. Join Dr. Carrie Bedient from The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, Dr. Abby Eblen from Nashville Fertility Center and Dr. Susan Hudson from Texas Fertility Center for the nitty-gritty about what these medical abbreviations are all about and how these docs work cooperatively. In cases where fertility is more complex, understand why your reproductive endocrinologist might request similar testing to your OBGYN, and why a second look is beneficial. The doctors also detail what to consider in transferring your medical records from your OBGYN, why all ultrasounds are not created equally and how REIs are attuned to the tricky timing of hormonal testing.
