Infertility: It’s more than just your ovaries

Here’s hoping everyone had a great Independence Day celebration, even with the HEAT Wave and Thunderstorms (here, in the US)!

This evening — Thursday, July 5th, 2012 — at 8 PM eastern (www.time.gov), I have the pleasure of discussing the “Infertility: It’s more than just your ovaries” with Dr. Patrick Flynn.

In 2002, 2 million American women of reproductive age were infertile. Infertility is also common among men. In fact, iinfertility is actually a global issue. Data from the CDC shows that “The desire to have children is powerful and widespread, but for a size able minority it is not easily fulfilled. Challenges to fertility arise from genetic abnormalities, infectious or environmental agents, delayed childbearing, behavior, and certain diseases. Awareness of the potential risks may lead some people to adopting corrective behaviors and maintain fertility. Many people, however, find themselves coping with infertility.”

Treatment for infertility is fairly complex and along with fertility treatment facilities, many have turned to a more holistic approach. Treatment remedies include modalities such as acupuncture, yoga, massage diet/nutrition, herbs, vitamins, counseling/support groups and yes, even laughter therapy (clowning).

Dr. Patrick Flynn is an expert in the area of infertility, and the use of complementary therapies for this rising health concern. We will discuss the ABC’s and D’s of infertility.

Here are a few of the questions we’ll discuss:

  • Where does the current healthcare system go wrong when dealing with infertility?
  • Is in vitro the answer?
  • Is it the same approach for every woman?
  • Does stress affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant?
  • How does birth control impact fertility?
