Royal Palm Ob-Gyn
When I first got pregnant and went to an ob-gyn, I went to someone who went out of their way to scare me and make me feel stupid. One of my friends told me to try her Doctor and see how I felt after meeting him. So, I did. I met Dr. Bruce Zafran of Royal Palm Ob-Gyn and had a long talk about everything that bothered me. He assured me that if at any time I felt uncomfortable, I could leave and not have to worry. He answered any and all questions I had and gave me his e-mail address to send him messages when ever I had a question. He and his staff are very compitent and capable of doing their job of making you comfortable. Because I went to them, my pregnancy turned out great. I would travel cross country to go to them because they make me feel good about being a mom and having a baby. They may not have a luxury waiting room but it is worth the wait for someone who treats you like a real person with real needs rather than make you feel stupid. With all the Doctors there, I am sure ther is one that will fit you.

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.
