There are now infertility treatments available to help nearly every couple conceive. In order to spread this hopeful message, Shady Grove Fertility physicians host nearly 150 free events each year for current patients and information seekers.

ROCKVILLE, Md., April 3, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Shady Grove Fertility will be hosting 14 free educational events

in the month of April as part of their event series led by the practice's physician and program experts. Topics ranging from in vitro fertilization (IVF), navigating your infertility with a fertility specialist, financial options, and what your menstrual cycle says about your infertility are just a few of the topics covered.

"Many patients wait to seek help from a fertility specialist because of fear," says Dr. Eugene Katz of SGF's Towson and Bel Air, MD offices. "What our IVF webinar is intended to do is walk patients through the timeline of IVF, what they can expect along the way, and its favorable outcomes. We aim to replace fear with helpful, truthful information so that our patients can make the most informed decisions," adds Katz.

Success rates with IVF at SGF continue to improve due to significant technological, clinical, and laboratory advances. To learn more about this highly effective form of fertility treatment, attend the webinar with physician host Dr. Eugene Katz on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at noon.

Many women are unaware of what's normal and what's not when it comes to their period and don't realize that their menstrual cycle is an indicator of their fertility potential and ability to conceive. "Women with an irregular, heavy, painful, or a nonexistent period should not wait to see a fertility specialist," says Dr. Stephen Greenhouse of SGF's Fair Oaks and Haymarket, VA offices. "While guidelines for when to see a fertility specialist are based on age and length of time having unprotected intercourse, there are early warning signs that indicate the need to see a specialist sooner," adds Greenhouse.

To learn more, attend the webinar with physician host Dr. Stephen Greenhouse on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at noon.

While all SGF events are complimentary, interested parties must register to attend by visiting the Shady Grove Fertility calendar of events.

The practice will also be hosting other learning opportunities through in-person and virtual events and providing educational and support resources in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week, April 22 through April 28. To learn more, visit
