September is PCOS Awareness Month and to recognise this The Fertility Friendly Podcast is diving into our PCOS mini-series all month! PCOS is one of the most common reproductive health conditions that affects 8 to 13% of females of reproductive age and is a very common concern we see in our practice, here at The Dietologist.
This week, we are joined by Dr. Natasha Andreadis, Gynocologisyt and Fertility Specialist. Dr Tash is a Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility (CREI) sub-specialist, making her uniquely qualified to manage infertility and hormonal issues. She has rooms in Newtown Sydney and works with City Fertility, World Leaders in IVF.
In this episode, we cover the impact of PCOS on ovulation and conception. Does having a diagnosis of PCOS automatically mean IVF? well maybe not! Dr. Tash shares her expertise on health and lifestyle modification, cycle tracking, and fertility.
Of course, when IVF is needed, PCOS can include some extra risk factors and considerations (such as OHSS). Dr. Tash discusses these risk factors and how IVF has come a long way for patients with PCOS. Listen in for an expert voice on this topic!
