MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes.
This week on MD for Moms, I interview Reproductive Endocrinologist Dr Randi Goldman about egg freezing and fertility treatments. Freezing ones eggs has become more popular and is even sponsored by some large companies (likely to keep women in the workforce longer, not really in an overtly altruistic sense). Your eggs are never younger than at this moment, so if you’re sure you want kids but now isn’t yet the time, egg freezing may be for you. Learn about the steps required for a successful round of egg retrieval and the process of egg freezing. Is it better to freeze eggs or embryos (if in a relationship, for example)? Dr Goldman explains all the differences and why a woman may choose one over the other.
Dr. Goldman also talks to us about trying to conceive and the fertility process. We review when to consider seeing a reproductive endocrinologist and what treatment options exist depending on the situation. We also explore the role of age (male and female) when it comes to fertility and how to maximize the chance of success. Dr. Goldman also walks us through how the various medications like clomid and letrozole and different hormones used may impact mood, so you can be duly prepared.
