Description

If you work in women’s health then you know that fertility is not just about getting pregnant – it is a sign of overall health. There is so much misinformation and confusing guidance out there when it comes to fertility and nutrition. Patients who are trying to conceive are vulnerable to fad diets, incorrect information, and stress and overwhelm when it comes to food and supplements. This presentation will cover evidence-based approaches to help patients optimize their fertility health and egg quality. We cover various conditions that impact fertility, including hypothalamic amenorrhea, endometriosis and PCOS and dive into some nutrition recommendations for recurrent miscarriage and for patients undergoing assisted reproductive technologies.
