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. Roohi Jeelani of Vios Fertility Institute about infertility. After years of avoiding pregnancy at all costs (birth control, condoms, standing on ones head – no judgment, but not effective), it would seem fitting for pregnancy to happen easily and quickly, yet for many women this is not the case. Failing to conceive can feel like the greatest physical failure even though it is never anyone’s fault, and facing infertility treatment can be incredibly daunting and overwhelming.
This week’s show seeks to demystify the process and make it all a bit less scary. Dr. Jeelani reviews important considerations when it comes to fertility including at what age women should consider freezing their eggs and she explains the many forms of fertility treatments and who is appropriate for each type. She also explores steps women can take to preserve their fertility when facing a cancer diagnosis. We address important ways to enhance fertility for women (and for men) and things to avoid doing that may negatively impact the chance of successful conception. This is a jam packed show with tons of useful information that you don’t want to miss.
