When to use a second medical opinion on fertility?

 
By Reproclinic Editorial Committee
 

We all seek advice or a second opinion when we need to make an important decision. We seek help and compare opinions when buying a house, a car or even when booking a hotel… So, why not seek a second medical opinion on fertility?

A pregnancy changes our lives. It is not a decision that should be taken lightly. If you are already looking for help to conceive, we recommend consulting more than one specialist to clarify your doubts and be convinced that you are making the most appropriate decision.

Requesting a second medical opinion on fertility does not imply that you don’t trust your specialist or that you think he may be wrong. The goal is simply to be 100% sure that all the possibilities have been analyzed in order to be able to make the best decision with total confidence.

 

When should you  request a second medical opinion on fertility?

 

If you feel that your specialist has not performed the necessary tests for your diagnosis. If you think it does not offer you enough guarantees. If deep down you feel that there may be another solution, do not hesitate, ask for a second opinion on fertility!

 

  • Lack of security or confidence in the medical team
  • You feel that your case has not been carefully studied
  • Doubts about the diagnosis
  • Lack of exams or medical tests
  • Lack of guarantees
  • They only offer you one unique possibility or treatment
  • You have doubts about the recommended treatment
  • Very high budgets and long waiting lists
  • Schedules incompatible with your day to day

 

Even if you have full confidence in your medical team, it never hurts to listen to an external voice that can give you advice or an alternative.

A second medical opinion on fertility can also reinforce a diagnosis or recommended treatment, which will start this new stage with full confidence in the decision you are going to make.

 

Advantages of requesting a second medical opinion on fertility

 

Clearly, a second medical opinion on fertility allows you to obtain other points of view to make a more informed decision. In addition, it will allow you to validate the diagnosis obtained in a first consultation with your usual specialist.

Here we list the multiple advantages that listening to other opinions of different professionals:

 

  • Know different ways of understanding and facing the same problem. Each professional has different experiences and methodologies to address each situation.
  • Discover what treatments and technologies are used in other centers, cities and even countries.
  • Feel that you have more control over the situation. Sometimes it is difficult to face the disadvantages that infertility entails, but when you have more information, you gain tranquility and confidence to make decisions.
  • Know the different possibilities to achieve the same goal: pregnancy. A second opinion allows you to validate your opportunities with different techniques of assisted reproduction.
  • It will help you finally to make the best decision.
