Dr. Kaajal Abrol: So when I was a medical student, I always though I wanted to be a pediatrician and work with young kids. I did my pediatrics clinical rotation and loved it, but then did my OB-GYN rotation and really loved it. I loved working with women and treating women, I loved the variety of the job, one day it was delivering babies, the next day you were in the operating room, the day after that you were in the office talking about contraception, so it was a lot of variety, and I loved the area of women caring for women and treating women, so that’s what lead me to OBGYN. And in my first year of obstetrics and gynecology residency, I started to read about fertility and infertility and all the hormone pathways and really got interested in it. It’s something that really made sense and was fascinating. And then I did a clinical rotation and an elective in it, had a great mentor and could really see myself doing this. I think it is such a privilege and a unique and special job to be able to help a couple have a baby and start a family or grow their family.
