Naveed Khan, M.D. to host Fertility Myths Webinar on October 26, 2016 at 12:00 p.m.

Whether attending an event online or in-person, we want to make these experiences valuable to the attendees.

Shady Grove Fertility, the largest fertility center in the nation—celebrating 25 years and more than 40,000 babies born continues to educate the community about overcoming infertility. The practice will be opening its doors in all of our regions throughout the month of October and beyond as part of its ongoing patient education series. These events provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about the latest information in regards to treatment options, financial programs, and how to take the next step in pursuing treatment. Each event concludes with a question and answer session providing attendees with the opportunity to engage either in-person or virtually with their physician experts.

“Whether attending an event online or in-person, we want to make these experiences valuable to the attendees and make sure they walk away from each event with all of the information they need to make an informed decision about seeking treatment,” says Lauren Roth, M.D., who will be hosting a Fertility Options Seminar in Frederick, MD, on Tuesday, October 18, 2016, at 6:30 p.m.

At the in-person events, the physician expert will discuss the general fertility timeline, which includes diagnostic testing for infertility, treatment options, affording care, and success rates. The primary goal at Shady Grove Fertility is to not only to help patients achieve a family, but to provide optimal, affordable patient care. “The patient comes first” is the core of the practice and what SGF believes is a strong differentiator among other fertility practices.

“While there is a great deal of inaccurate information about getting pregnant and fertility circulating in the social sphere, it’s our duty as leaders in our field to set the record straight about some of the common fertility myths our physicians hear from patients,” says Naveed Khan, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Leesburg, VA, office. Dr. Khan will dispel some of the common fertility myths at the Fertility Myths Webinar on Wednesday, October 26, 2016, at 12:00 p.m.

For prospective and current patients who enjoy using an app to learn about their fertility, Shady Grove Fertility has partnered with the fertility app, Glow, in an effort to educate the thousands of active app users about their personal fertility health, reproductive options, and the infertility treatment process.

Throughout October, our weekly ask-the-expert Q&A forums on Glow will cover all aspects of getting pregnant and infertility with different topics highlighted each week. Melissa Esposito, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Harrisburg, PA, office will be hosting the Q&A “Miscarriage: The Quiet Fear” on Thursday, October 13, 2016, at 4 p.m. With one in four pregnancies resulting in miscarriage, it’s an important topic that affects many couples. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Esposito questions about miscarriage and learn more about the primary causes and chances of achieving a healthy pregnancy following a miscarriage.

For all in-person and online events in October and beyond, all interested parties must register to attend by visiting the Shady Grove Fertility calendar of events.
