Can Diet and Exercise Reduce the Effects of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome on Fertility?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which is estimated to affect over 5 million American women, is the most common cause of female infertility and accounts for nearly “70% of fertility issues in women who have difficulty ovulating” (according to the PCOS Foundation). Nearly 5-10% of women of childbearing age have PCOS, however, only about half of them are diagnosed. In a recent study conducted at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, PA, researchers discovered that following a healthy lifestyle, which includes diet and exercise, resulted in improved fertility in overweight or obese women with PCOS. The study did not review if those same lifestyle choices would improve fertility in women who were already at a healthy weight. Continue reading

Recurrent Miscarriage Treatment in Connecticut

On average, nearly one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, while women under 35 have a slightly lower miscarriage rate of about 20%. Miscarriage is surprisingly common, with most women experiencing one before they are even aware they are pregnant. Recently, the media was abuzz over the news that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan had experienced multiple miscarriages before their current pregnancy. Their experience shined a light on a few important points about recurrent miscarriage: the topic is often not openly discussed, underlying issues may not have been adequately treated by doctors in the past, and there is hope for patients who have experienced multiple miscarriages. Our Connecticut fertility centers offer comprehensive treatment for recurrent miscarriages. Continue reading

When is the Right Age to Start Your Family?

Women (and men) are bombarded by the media with many different messages about when to start having children. A recent article by the Daily Mail suggested that if a woman wants to have three children she should begin at the age of 23. Other sources suggest that waiting until you’re older provides a better, more stable situation to raise children. While it’s true that women and men are working against their own biological clock, the dates of when it’s appropriate to have children aren’t cut and dry. For many women, having children in their early twenties is not an option whether for monetary, relationship, health, or emotional reasons. When you decide to have a child is entirely up to you. That being said, there are factors to consider when deciding to delay or begin your family. Continue reading
