I have been seeing the same OBGYN for about 2 years, in the last 9 months I have had 3 miscarriages. This week she told me that even though the clinics website states OBGYN an Infertility Specialist she actually only does the basics and at this point she is at a loss with me. I just made an appointment with a RE in two weeks. I am hoping for the best....I know many of you have seen RE's so can you tell me if there really is a difference between them and an OBGYN? Have you had better results with an RE?

I have just a little bit more confidence in my RE. RPL and infertility are special areas she has studied and researched.

Altho I LOVE LOVE LOVE my OB, she doesn't specialize some of the things my RE does.

I hope the RE can give you some answers. KUP

Yea, my RE seemed more knowledgeable. The first thing he did was order tests the OB had missed.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

I did NOT have better luck seeing an RE. I saw 2 drs in the infertility dept & both told me that I just have bad luck. I asked to be referred to an RE & she told me I just have bad luck. She didn't do any testing on me, nothing but look at my chart!
