In brief: Specialization
An obgyn sees women for cancer screening, birth control, period problems, prenatal care when pregnant, etc.
A fertility doctor sees a couple if they are having trouble getting pregnant. They do tests to see where the problem is and then treats them until they are pregnant and thru almost the first trimester. Then they transfer back to their obgyn for prenatal care and delivery.
