The Fertility Work-Up with Aumatma Shah, ND
March 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-8
In this talk, we’ll review fertility testing so that you can fully understand the patient that is coming to you for treatment. Often, not even OBGYNs or Reproductive Endocrinologists are doing complete review and analysis of a patient’s hormones and markers related to fertility. So, as Naturopathic Doctors, it is quintessential that we are able to order and analyze the tests from the perspective of optimizing a patient’s body for fertility. In this session, we will also review male fertility and fertility-adjacent testing which is important in creating the fully picture for the couple.
