SGF physicians offer three free virtual webinars and live Q&As throughout Endometriosis Awareness Month supporting those with endometriosis as well as events for information seekers in search of a better understanding of their fertility.  

Rockville, MD – Individuals and couples struggling with infertility are invited to join Shady Grove Fertility’s (SGF) three, free virtual events featuring topics including endometriosis, fertility basics, and menstrual cycles. In support of those affected by endometriosis, and to honor Endometriosis Awareness Month this March, Joseph Osheroff, M.D., who sees patients at SGF’s Columbia, Maryland, office, will host a virtual Endometriosis webinar on March 1 at 12 p.m. ET.  

 Endometriosis is present when cells that ordinarily line the uterine cavity reside in the pelvis leading to cyclic pelvic pain, inflammation, and sometimes scarring in and around the Fallopian tubes.  

“Endometriosis affects approximately 48 percent of women experiencing infertility,” shares Dr. Osheroff. “We want those with endometriosis to have a better understanding of how their diagnosis might affect their fertility and encourage them to see a fertility specialist as soon as possible.”  

On March 15, Ryan Martin M.D., who sees patients at SGF’s Warrington, Pennsylvania, office, will host a Fertility 101 webinar on March 15 at 12 p.m. ET. During this informational event, Dr. Martin will discuss: 

  • who should see a fertility specialist, 
  • what to expect during the initial appointment, 
  • how fertility is diagnosed, 
  • treatment options, 
  • and SGF’s unique financial options. 

Rounding out March events is Alex Polotsky, M.D., who sees patients at SGF Colorado’s Colorado Springs and Denver offices, will host the Menstrual Cycle and Fertility webinar on March 29 at 2 p.m. ET. Dr. Polotsky will review the basics of menstruation and ovulation, explain irregular vs. normal cycles, and describe red flags that warrant the attention of a fertility specialist sooner rather than later.
