When you or someone you know went through/going through infertility treatments, did it involve a lot of time off work?

I'm asking because I have a co-worker who has been trying to get pregnant for a number of years, last year she finally started seeing a specialist (unfortunately a pregnancy resulted in an early miscarriage), but in the past couple of months she has been taking time off at odd times for Dr. appts. Is there a timing aspect here that I may be missing? She missed work twice last week and came in for literally 5 minutes this morning before telling us of an appointment, her intention to return before 11:00, and then a subsequent email telling my boss that she would not be returning today. I'm not sure if this is "normal" or not. We'd like to have an idea if we should expect the whole year to go this way?
