Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) Physicians Host Free Virtual Fertility Events Throughout the Month of August

WASHINGTON, Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- During this time of uncertainty, Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) physicians remain true to their commitment to educate and empower the one in eight couples of reproductive age who will struggle to conceive, by offering virtual fertility events throughout August on a wide range of topics, including what to expect when you're not expecting, egg freezing, in vitro fertilization (IVF), and donor egg treatment.

"Couples who are having difficulty conceiving often have many questions and aren't sure when the right time is to see a fertility specialist. SGF's webinar 'What to Expect When You're Not Expecting' is designed to answer questions, reduce anxiety, and arm couples with the information and confidence they need to take that first step," says Dr. Brianna Schumacher who will be hosting the free event on August 19.

Whether a person is just suspecting infertility or further along with an already established diagnosis, Dr. Schumacher will provide insight on how reproductive endocrinologists define infertility, common causes, four simple tests that help to determine the underlying reason behind the inability to conceive, treatment options, success rates, what to expect during an initial physician video consultation, financial and insurance options, and much more.

"We help patients make informed decisions and can provide much needed guidance to help them achieve their dreams of parenthood. You don't have to do this alone," reminds Dr. Schumacher.

Additionally, participants will learn how SGF is addressing safety precautions as well as how to make progress toward building their family amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Each event concludes with a physician Q&A where patients can get their questions answered from the privacy and comfort of their own home.

"While many patients will not need IVF to conceive, it may be helpful that they understand the process so that if they do need this advanced treatment option they will feel fully informed," says Dr. Ricardo Yazigi who will be hosting the IVF webinar on August 25. Dr. Yazigi will walk attendees through the entire IVF process from start to finish including informed consent, stimulation medication, monitoring, egg retrieval, embryo transfer, and pregnancy testing.

While SGF fertility webinars are complimentary, interested parties must register to attend by visiting the SGF calendar of events.
