I am a specialist in infertility and advanced gynecological care. I can answer questions about infertility, gynecology related ills, menopause...virtually anything that affects women's health. PLEASE tell me where you are writing from as I am always interested.
I have been practicing as an Ob/Gyn and Infertility Specialist for over 23 years. Gynecology, advanced laparoscopic surgery, basic infertility, IUI's, IVF, reproductive surgery, and ovulation induction are all areas of my expertise. I am Board Certified. I have been doing In Vitro Fertilization in my clinic for 19 years.

I practice in beautiful Monterey County, California and have patients come to see me from all over the country. I am fluent in Spanish and Japanese. I am deeply committed to courteous, responsive and personal care. You can read all about me and my clinic at my website, montereybayivf.com. Follow our daily updates on Twitter @montereybayivf.
I would hope that eventually it will be possible to help all women, regardless of their reproductive difficulty, to acheive their dream of a family. We have come such a long way since Steptoe's first IVF baby but we still have a long way to go in order to make the ability to have a child easily achieved as well as more affordably achieved.
Regardless of your infertility challenge, there is a way to have a child! Thinking "outside the box" is very helpful when it comes to facing the sometimes very frustrating process of becoming a parent.
When should you seek a specialist? The answer is when you feel you need a specialist. For some that will be right from the start, when you realize you are not getting pregnant. For others, that will not be until they have exhausted their options with their Ob/Gyn doctors.

Hello Chastity from the U.S.(Kentucky), Yes, this can be a normal side effect of Lupron. However, I presume your last shot was 3 months before April/May so that it has now been almost 5 months without
