SGF supports family building of all types for individuals and couples by offering free fertility events this June.
Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) remains dedicated to their core mission of reaching and teaching the community about fertility health and options for overcoming infertility by offering four virtual events in June, including events that celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride and Men’s Health Month. Each event concludes with a question-and-answer session where attendees can get their questions answered by the SGF’s physician experts.
To kick off June events, Robert Setton, M.D., who sees patients at SGF New York’s Manhattan office in addition to the brand-new Brooklyn office opening Summer 2021, will host the LGBTQ+ Family Building webinar in celebration of Pride Month on June 8, 2021, at 3 pm.
“SGF understands that becoming a parent is a natural desire for most people, gay or straight,” reflects Dr. Setton. “With this knowledge, SGF treats its gay, lesbian, transgender, and gender queer patients no differently than heterosexual patients by providing quality medical care in a friendly, compassionate and inclusive environment.”
During Dr. Setton’s event, he will discuss family planning and assisted reproduction options for the LGBTQ+ community followed by a live Q&A session.
Many people mistakenly believe that infertility is solely caused by the female partner. The reality is that 40 to 50 percent of all infertility cases are due to male factor infertility. In honor of Men’s Health Month, Paul R. Shin, M.D., Director of Reproductive Urology for SGF’s Center for Male Fertility, will host a free Male Fertility webinar on June 17, 2021, at 12 pm.
Information seekers who are facing male factor infertility may register for this informative webinar and learn more about services offered at SGF. Additionally, attendees will learn about:
- male and female reproduction and the role they both play in the ability to conceive,
- simple tests used to evaluate male fertility,
- common causes of male factor infertility,
- lifestyle changes that can improve a man’s fertility,
- effective treatment options designed to address and overcome male factor infertility, and
- treatment success rates.
Rounding out the month of events is the Fertility 101 webinar hosted by Matthew Connell, D.O., on June 23, 2021, at 12 pm. During this informative presentation, Dr. Connell will review what patients can expect during their first appointment including the fertility evaluation, SGF’s stepped approach to treatment, and their unique financial programs.
