I went to see my primary care doctor after my second miscarriage.
I thought the dcotor would give me a referrel to see an ob/gyn doctor, or other infertility specialist. But what I was told was to see a genetic counseler. I was told that after seeing the genetic counseler, I can come back to primary care doctor to get blood tests etc. according to the instruction from the geneteic counseler.
According to my primary doctor, this is the chepest way. He told me not to go to see an Ob/gyn doctor, because they will send me to a genetic counseler.
I am not sure whehter this is a right process.
I though if I go to see an Ob/gyn doctor in a hospital affiliated with a university reserch, he can give me tests to check what's wrong.
Is it really a good idea to see a genetic counselere?
I am not sure what the genetic counseler can do for me..
If you have experience to see genetic counselers,
please give me information!!!
Genetic counselors are quite useful in preparing for pregnancy. They can determine at a more cost-effective manner if you are capable of having a baby, if the problem is associated with a genetic link. I'm assuming that the doctor believes there is a problem in the chromosomes, and thus wants you to discuss this with the geneticist first. Genetic counselors are an excellent resource in seeing if the problem is on a molecular basis.
Obstetricians and gynecologists are more involved in the physical aspect of pregnancy, ensuring that the anatomy of the reproductive organs is intact and capable of housing the fetus.
Hope that helps.
How many weeks did you have before the miscarriages?
