I hear patients all the time say that they delayed coming to see us because they were simply unsure what to expect and fear got in the way.

Shady Grove Fertility, the largest fertility center in the United States, with more babies born than any other fertility center in the nation—continues to remind the community through its educational events when it’s time to see a fertility specialist, as early fertility intervention offers couples the best chances of success. The goal of Shady Grove Fertility’s online and in-person events is to provide attendees with the most up-to-date information about infertility so they can make educated and informed decisions about seeking treatment. To make each event as informative as possible, all events—either virtual or in-person—conclude with a question and answer session with a physician expert allowing attendees to get their personal questioned answered.

The new virtual event “What Your Menstrual Cycle Says about Your Fertility,” which launched last month has garnered interest among many Shady Grove Fertility participants who are unaware of what’s normal and what’s not when it comes to their menstrual cycles and how an abnormal menstrual cycle impacts fertility and conception.

“Our new menstrual cycle webinar is intended to give women an understanding of early warning signs about their reproductive health that could be the underlying cause of why they have been unable to conceive. By educating women on what to look for in their menstrual cycles, we are encouraging women to act sooner and seek the help they need from a fertility specialist, which in many cases only requires basic or low-tech treatment options,” says Ricardo Yazigi, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Towson, MD office. Dr. Yazigi will be hosting the Tuesday, May 16 webinar about “What Your Menstrual Cycle Says about Your Fertility.”

Physician experts during the “Is it time to see a fertility specialist?” in-person seminar will address the most common causes of both male and female infertility. Many people don’t realize that 40 percent of infertility is attributed to the male. It is a common myth that many people think infertility is solely a female problem.

“What many couples are surprised to learn is that infertility does not discriminate and can affect both men and women equally. If a couple is struggling to conceive, it’s important to see a fertility specialist for an early evaluation, based on their age and length of time having unprotected intercourse. By testing both partners simultaneously, a physician is able to determine the cause of a patient’s infertility sooner and put them on the right treatment path,” says Rebecca J. Chason, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Annapolis, MD office. Dr. Chason will be hosting the Tuesday, May 23 in-person seminar, “Is it time to see a fertility specialist?”

On May 10, Shady Grove Fertility will be offering a new event and a unique opportunity for interested parties to tour their brand new state-of-the-art facility in Rockville, MD. Home to the largest freestanding IVF and embryology laboratory in the nation, co-founder of the practice, Arthur Sagoskin, M.D., will answer questions and provide a tour. “I hear patients all the time say that they delayed coming to see us because they were simply unsure what to expect and fear got in the way. This is a casual, relaxed setting to learn more about what makes Shady Grove Fertility a truly unique place. We hear many of our patients say that they wished they hadn’t waited so long to make that call,” says Dr. Sagoskin.

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.
