Infertility : If you are truly in premenopause, you will need the help of an infertility specialist to get pregnant. This may require looking at options such as ivf or using a donor egg.

Premenopause: See a gyn endocrinologist for a workup. There are several possibilites. One common one id pcos (polycystic ovary syndrome) which causes hormone imbalance and difficulty with fertility.

Pregnant: OB MD?: As soon as pregnancy is established, it is good to schedule an appointment with an OB provider, as there are medication issues, general health issues, and protective care recommendations which are important to have available as early as possible.
A 37-year-old female asked:
Can I go to an ordinary Doctor for my 8-10 week pregnancy check-up and tests? The gynae I am seeing only has an appointment available when I will be 12 weeks.

Call first: Many physicians who are not obstetricians do provide OB services (but some do not). So, if you elect to do this, I would find out beforehand if that is within the provider's scope of practice. You could always wait and have all services covered by the OB/ GYN
