Reproductive endocrinology, a relatively newer branch of medicine is a subspecialty of Obstetrics and Gynaecology that deals with the evaluation and treatment of various fertility related issues in both men and women. Reproductive endocrinologists are well versed in identifying the factors causing infertility, handling complex problems such as recurrent miscarriages caused by hormonal imbalances in the reproductive system and providing appropriate care to patients with reproductive disorders.
Fertility treatment involves use of different artificial methods to help a woman conceive in conditions where she is unable to conceive naturally. The other treatments include use of hormones and fertility drugs. Some of the reproductive health problems that are taken care of include:
- Repeated miscarriages
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Ovarian cysts
- Menstrual disorders
