Expertise important: When seeking out help for any medical condition, the expertise of the doctor and of course your comfort level with him/her is most important, not their gender. A reproductive endocrinologist, gyn or endocrinologist are types of doctors you would want to see. If by female doctor you mean, a gyn, that is appropriate.
