While PCOS has visible signs and symptoms, there is no one size fits all, which is why women with irregular or absent menstrual cycles should seek help from a fertility specialist sooner.
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) June 12, 2017
Shady Grove Fertility, the largest fertility center in the United States, with more babies born than any other fertility center in the nation, continues their mission to educate the community about infertility by providing access to resources and information to help individuals and couples overcome infertility. In addition to the 13 events already on the practice’s June educational events calendar, SGF has added two additional webinars on common topics of concern for those who are trying to conceive: PCOS, the most common ovulatory disorder that affects the ability to conceive, and getting started.
“When first considering or starting fertility treatment, many questions abound. What type of treatment is best, will it work, how will I afford it, how can I fit treatment info my life? Our Getting Started webinar is intended to address some of these common patient questions and concerns and help to set minds at ease about taking that first step in seeking help from a fertility specialist,” says Eugene Katz, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Towson, MD office. Dr. Katz will be hosting the Getting Started webinar on Thursday, June 22 at 12:00 p.m.
Accounting for nearly one-third of all infertility diagnoses in women, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common ovulatory disorder in women of reproductive age. “While PCOS has visible signs and symptoms, there is no one size fits all, which is why women with irregular or absent menstrual cycles should seek help from a fertility specialist sooner if they are having trouble conceiving than what is typically recommended for an initial evaluation, says Naveed Khan, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Leesburg, VA and Dulles-Aldie, VA offices. Dr. Khan will be hosting the PCOS webinar on Wednesday, June 28 at 12:00 p.m.
Among the benefits of attending an SGF educational event is direct access to the practice’s physician experts. Attendees have the opportunity, in person or virtually, to ask the physician questions at the conclusion of each event.
While all SGF events are complementary, interested parties must register to attend by visiting the Shady Grove Fertility calendar of events.
