I cannot underscore enough the importance of seeking an early fertility evaluation. It offers patients the best chances of having a baby.

Shady Grove Fertility, the largest fertility center in the United States, with more babies born than any other center in the nation—has launched a brand new event in response to the need that 30 percent of women of childbearing age have irregular menstrual cycles. And with problems with ovulation being the most common culprit when it comes to female infertility—which accounts for 40 to 50 percent of infertility causes—it’s important to educate women about common irregular menstrual cycle warning signs, which could complicate trying to conceive if not addressed.

The new virtual event, “What Your Menstrual Cycle Says about Your Fertility” will address early warning signs seen in a woman’s menstrual cycle that may signal a problem with their fertility, in addition to provide a basic primer on what is considered normal vs abnormal.

“Most women don’t talk openly about their menstrual cycles with anyone, even their OB/GYN, and many don’t realize that what is ‘normal’ to them may not be ‘normal’ when it comes to their reproductive health. Our aim is to educate women about early warning signs if they are trying to conceive, as ovulation disorders can pose a challenge when it comes to conception. Fortunately, with a proper and early fertility evaluation and treatment, we can overcome almost every case, but it does require a woman know her cycle and respond appropriately if something is not quite right,” says Lauren Roth, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Frederick, MD and Harrisburg, PA offices. Dr. Roth will be hosting the Wednesday, April 5 webinar about menstrual cycles and infertility.

During Shady Grove Fertility’s “Is it time to see a fertility specialist?” event, physician experts will dispel some of the common fertility myths and discuss the causes of infertility and how early fertility intervention offers the greatest chances of success.

“I cannot underscore enough the importance of seeking an early fertility evaluation. It offers patients the best chances of having a baby. While we cannot offer any guarantees that treatment will work, what we can guarantee is that time is better on your side when you seek an early fertility evaluation versus waiting,” says Joseph Doyle, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Rockville, MD office. Dr. Doyle will be hosting the “Is it time to see a fertility specialist?” live event on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

Shady Grove Fertility’s online and in-person physician-led events provide those who are struggling to conceive with the opportunity to learn the latest information about infertility from a fertility expert. Each event concludes with a question and answer session providing attendees with the opportunity to engage either in-person or virtually with a physician expert. Informed patients often have more favorable outcomes.

While all SGF in-person and online events are complimentary, interested parties must register to attend by visiting the Shady Grove Fertility calendar of events.
