Helping your doctor by asking the right question

It's well-known that your doctor has a limited amount of time to spend with you. There's a lot you can do to make the best use of this limited time - but the most useful tip I can offer is - " Learn to ask the right questions ! " It's a truism that the quality of the answer depends upon the quality of the question, so the better you craft your question, the better the doctor's answer will be ! I am an infertility specialist, and mnay couples ask me - "Doctor, can you please tell me why I am I not getting pregnant ? " I remind them that no one cares about problems - people only care about solutions ! This means the question should not be - "Why am I not getting a baby ?" but rather - "What can I do in order to get pregnant ?" There's a big difference in the two questions - and therefore a big difference in the two answers !
