Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) Physicians and Staff Host Free Virtual Fertility Events and Live Q&As throughout the Month of October

ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) is committed to working hand-in-hand with patients who dream of having a baby yet are facing infertility hurdles. While SGF prioritizes informing patients of their treatment options, it is equally important to offer full transparency on how dreams come with a financial planning perspective. In October, SGF will offer five, free virtual events for attendees seeking knowledge on a mix of topics including first steps toward fertility, financial planning, what your menstrual cycle can mean, and IVF.

"If you're coping with the challenges of conceiving or sustaining a pregnancy, you're not alone - one in eight couples share in this common experience," says Dr. Matthew Connell, who will host a Getting Started webinar followed by a live Q&A on Tuesday, October 13 at 4 pm. "Rest assured knowing that SGF offers stepped-approach treatments to help almost anyone conceive."

Upon learning about the first steps you'll take to get started on your journey, you may wonder about how to pay for treatment. On Wednesday, October 21 at 3 pm, Jennifer Cockburn from SGF's Patient Financial Services Team will host a Financial Options webinar to help viewers navigate insurance plans with additional assistance from SGF's unique financial programs, like their exclusive 100% refund programs for IVF and donor egg treatment. However, it is important to understand when it is the right time to seek fertility treatment.

"I recommend trying to conceive for 6 months to a year before contacting a specialist, but there are instances where we'd like to get you in the door sooner," says Dr. Valerie Libby from SGF's Atlanta-Northside office who will host What Your Menstrual Cycle Says about Your Fertility webinar on October 22 at 4 pm. "Many women don't know what's considered a normal menstrual cycle and what's not. Either way, your period can provide really important information about your overall ability to conceive."

Dr. Libby will review the basics of menstruation and ovulation, irregular vs. normal cycles, and who should not wait to seek help from a fertility specialist.

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