Hosted this year as a nationwide virtual experience on May 22, 2021, Dr. Widra will discuss the effects PCOS has on fertility and treatment options available at the American Fertility Expo, 2021 Spring Edition.

Rockville, MD – Women seeking more information about polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and its effects on fertility are welcomed to join Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) Chief Medical Officer, Eric Widra, M.D., for his breakout session on the topic at the virtual American Fertility Expo on May 22, 2021. With nearly one-third of all infertility diagnoses in women, PCOS, is the most common ovulatory disorder in women of reproductive age.

“The cause of PCOS is not completely understood and is often linked to infertility, but it’s also important to note that women with PCOS have a very good chance at conception,” explains Dr. Widra, who will be hosting a breakout session on PCOS at the event on Saturday, May 22 at 10 am EST. “I’m proud to shed light on PCOS during the American Fertility Expo so that women can become empowered with answers regarding the condition and the treatment options available to them.”

For the admission of a $5.00 ticket while supplies last, attendees will also have the opportunity to engage with vendors in a virtual exhibit hall. SGF invites attendees to visit its virtual booth to learn more about its wide range of treatment offerings and services, 40 convenient locations across the country, and financial options, including its 100% refund guarantee program, designed to make affording fertility treatment easier.
