If it weren't for Nicole Taylor, my midwife, I would not go back here. Every time I call, it seems like I am a huge burden to whomever answers the phone. That's the same for when I go in for any appointment. No one smiles, no one asks you how you are. They sit around like bumps on logs with frowns on their faces and no personality. It's so frustrating. I shouldn't feel guilty for calling my doctor's office just to make an appointment or just for showing up to my appointment! I'm considering finishing up my annual exam this year and then going somewhere that I'm not a huge burden to those working there.

Dr. Prakash J Thiruppathi, MD
In our journey toward fertility, my husband and I luckily were referred to Dr. Thiruppathi. He is one of the most gentle, knowledgeable, patient, and kind doctors I have ever encountered. I recently had to have a myomectomy and Dr. Thiruppathi and his staff helped me tremendously throughout the process. He is so experienced, that my scars are barely visible. We will start the fertility process in a couple months and are so grateful we found such a kind person to help us through this delicate time.

Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
