Attending an online webinar about this topic is an opportunity to gain insight into some of these key questions and provides individuals the information they need to take the next step in building their family.

Shady Grove Fertility, the largest fertility practice in the nation—celebrating 25 years and more than 40,000 babies born—is committed to raising awareness about infertility through educational events such as online webinars, Glow app community events, and in-person seminars. Our physician experts provide those seeking more information about infertility with not only an in-depth education, but also the appropriate tools and resources to make informed decisions about such topics as whether it’s time to see a specialist or how to take the next step to pursue treatment.

In continuing to educate and bring awareness to the community about infertility, Shady Grove Fertility will be hosting 17 free informational events online and in-person throughout the Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, DC regions during the month of September covering topics ranging from getting started with fertility treatment, preconception tips for getting pregnant, treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and financial programs offered exclusively for Shady Grove Fertility patients. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in a question and answer panel with the physician presenter at the conclusion of each of the events.

Accounting for nearly one-third of all infertility diagnosis in women, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common ovulatory disorder in women of reproductive age. To recognize September as PCOS awareness month and provide education for women about PCOS, Shady Grove Fertility will be hosting an online webinar with physician, Andrea Reh, M.D., from the SGF Arlington and Fredericksburg, VA, offices, to discuss causes and symptoms of PCOS, and the treatments that are now available to help women conceive.

“While PCOS is a common ovulatory disorder, there are many questions women have about diagnosing PCOS as well as the causes and treatment options available. Attending an online webinar about this topic is an opportunity to gain insight into some of these key questions and provides individuals the information they need to take the next step in building their family,” says Andrea Reh, M.D.

Shady Grove Fertility will host live community events with fertility expert Q&A through the fertility app, Glow, so that thousands of active app users can learn about their personal fertility health, reproductive options, and how infertility treatment works. Throughout September, our weekly Q&A forums will cover all aspects of fertility with different topics highlighted each week, including “What You Need to Know about Infertility” and “White Lies That Can Impact Fertility.” Dr. Shruti Malik, who has led many of the weekly Q&A engagements, will be hosting the “White Lies That Can Impact Fertility” Q&A on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. and Dr. Andrea Reh will be hosting “What You Need to Know about Infertility” on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 12:00 p.m.

The fertility app, Glow, is free to join and provides individuals with direct access to medical advice by fertility experts. Pre-registration is not required for participation in the Glow Q&As.
