Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
No, you do not need to remove your gallbladder before you get pregnant.
Yes, I would go straight to the infertility clinic. Irregular periods and not having periods for 2 months, it would be more efficient to have this investigated through infertility specialist. If they find a gyn issue, they will then refer yo to a GYN doctor.
It is more time and cost-efficient to go straight to infertility. The basic initial work-up is the same, and they will incorporate their infertility testing as well. But, if you already have a GYN who knows you well, then that is not a bad option to start with. If you end up going to the infertility clinic, I would recommend Dr Falcone at CC
Yes, used to be the chief of the infertility clinic at CCF.. not sure if still there.
They discourage it very much. You might find some one who would do it, generally, only if there is an obstetrical or maternal indication.
I take it by elective you mean "preferred"?
Patient preference ?
No, most would say NO, only when there is an obstetrical indication. I had relative who tried to deliver by CS when she could go normal vaginal, but had not success last year.
You should not really think of CS, it's a major surgery and you should not take it lightly. It has it's own potential complications, and it is really not the "painless approach to delivering a baby"
No one that that I know, and I know many :-)
When you get to that stage, where are support groups and classes that make your normal delivery a much less painful experience.
