What is a Reproductive Endocrinoligist?

A reproductive endocrinologist is just an OB/Gyn and as such can care for all general OB/Gyn problems. Dr. Schmidt performs annual exams, pelvic ultrasounds, treats bleeding, identifies which birth control option is best for you, tests hormones to check for impbalances, treats UTI's, treats vaginal infections, and diagnose breast issues. However, the REI has further training/expectations in surgical procedures and the treatment of infertility, PMS and menopause.
An Ob/Gyn has completed a four year Ob/Gyn residency (after four years of college and four years of medical school). During their four year residency, they obtain broad based knowledge in the entire field of obstetrics and gynecology. Because of time restraints, learning the sub-specialty of Ob/Gyn known as REI (Reproductive Endocrinology) is limited to 2 - 4 weeks.

REI encompasses three subspecialties of Ob/Gyn:
Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
