Dr. Wright just delivered a baby for a family member two days ago. He can be kind of quiet and hadn't made that big of impression one way or another until I saw him at work. I've had two children myself and I was more that impressed to say the least. She had an unexpected breech delivery and he only had seconds to react. He jumped right in and said I can do this with a confidence I applaud. Not only did he take control of the situation, he did a superb job delivering a very difficult type of position. The mother didn't have to have a C-section and he got that baby out with expertise I am in awe of. In my book if he can handle that he can handle anything. I am very grateful for his expertise and will forever hold him in awe. Actions speak louder than words and he is a giant.

He did my moms hysterectomy and he just did my tubal yesterday and honestly I feel great. He did a great job, I was slightly uncomfortable for the 1st 4-6 hours, maybe a 2 on scale of 1-10. It has been about 15 hours since my surgery and I feel no pain. I didn't even get my prescriptions filled, I have taken Tylenol 2 times and thats it. My abs are a little sore, it feels like I just did a lot of sit ups. I definitely would recommend him to anyone. He also delivered my last child and things couldn't have gone smoother. He's a great doctor!

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.
