7 Tips to help you prepare for your first visit to a Fertility Doctor

Dec 11, 2016 | Fertility Care
1. Bring all your medical records. It’s great to send them to your new doc ahead of time. But I love it when patients have their paper records printed out and with them in a folder. This way I can flip through them and make sure I’m not missing anything. If you're relying on another clinic to send things ahead of your visit, call before your visit to make sure they have arrived. Be Prepared! 2. Get tested! If you haven’t done the basic fertility work-up, get tested before your visit. After talking to your new doctor's office, see if they will order hormone levels like fsh, estradiol and AMH , semen analysis and a tube test (hysterosalpingogram). Bring in as many puzzle pieces as possible to your appointment so your doc can put the puzzle pieces together in order to solve the puzzle about what may be going on. 3. Know when your last period started and approximately when you ovulate. I can tell you that when I’m going to do the first pelvic ultrasound on a patient it’s really helpful to me if a patient knows approximately when her period started. This way I have a good idea...

3 Things Curvy Women Trying to Conceive should Know

Oct 07, 2016 | Fertility Care
I had the honor of being included in Ali Vincent's catch up interview for the show on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Here's a link to the segment from October 8th. Here are 3 things I want curvy women trying to conceive to know: 1) Don't let your size keep you out of your fertility doctor's office. You may have had other well meaning doctors tell you your problems are because you're too heavy when that may NOT be the case at all. Go see a fertility doctor! 2) Think about doing your injections intramuscular instead of subcutaneous (follow the direction of your personal physician) so that your body can make the best use of the medication. 3) Stop waiting to lose the weight first. Your ovaries are on the clock. If you wait until you're at the "perfect" bmi, your egg quality may have drastically diminished.  See your local fertility doctor now. At the end of the day, living your healthiest life each and every day is ultimately the goal I have for every patient. But I know so well how hard maintaining a healthy body size can be for so many women struggling with fertility issues. Please don't fat shame yourself....
