Approximately 1 in 8 couples will experience some difficulty in getting pregnant, and will consider seeking the help of a fertility specialist. This informative session will help you understand what a fertility specialist looks for during a fertility consultation and the three most important things that you need to get pregnant: sperm, an egg, and a working fallopian tube to carry a fertilized embryo to the uterus.

In this session, learn how this common endocrine problem, which affects up to 10% of all women, interferes with normal ovulation and can result in infertility.

Egg Freezing: Expanding a Woman’s Options
There are many reasons why women may want to postpone pregnancy from focusing on their education or career to waiting for “Mr. Right.” Our infertility physicians have specialized training and experience in egg freezing, and will provide up to date information on how it’s done. Egg freezing is an excellent option to preserve your fertility potential and provide protection against your biological clock until you feel ready to become a mother.
