The Egg Whisperer Show

Read the full show notes:   Alex Budak is an author and faculty member at Berkeley Haas School of Business. He recently wrote a book called "Becoming a Changemaker."   If there is anything I know about fertility patients it's that you all know a lot about being on a journey that often involves embracing change. You become more resilient, and you follow a "growth" mindset. You cling to hope and you let it lead the way forward. It's no surprise that I would have a social entrepreneur and changemaker on the show.    You have a lot in common with what Alex teaches and writes...

5 Novel Treatments for PCOS show art 5 Novel Treatments for PCOS

The Egg Whisperer Show

Read the full show notes: PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome. Many people interpret it to mean you have big cysts on your ovaries, but that's not true at all. When I hear PCOS I think of it as a call to, &ldquoPlease Confirm this Ovary Syndrome." So much is misunderstood about PCOS! Women are often told, “oh you don’t need to worry about it until you’re ready to have babies.” That could not be further from the truth. Today on the podcast, I'm talking about 5 novel treatments for PCOS. Do you have questions about IVF, and what to expect? The next live class call is on...

The Egg Whisperer Show

Today on the Egg Whisperer Show podcast, Dr. Geoffrey Sher joins me again to talk about his approach to care when it comes to IVF. We are discussing how he individualizes IVF protocols to optimize egg and embryo quality, giving his patients the best chance of IVF pregnancy. As he shares, there is no "one size fits all" approach to choosing the best protocol for IVF. It's no surprise that I agree with him. Protocols need to be customized, and are dependent on the woman's age and her ovarian reserve. Tune in as we talk about how to pick a protocol, the role of the trigger shot, the importance of...

More Episodes

This episode is all about how to care for yourself, and includes loving tips on how family and friends can support someone in fertility treatment, too.

Self-care is anything but selfish. It can come in the form of setting healthy boundaries in relationships, having clear communication or simply giving ourselves a break. As a fertility patient when we prioritize these things it helps us bring forward our best selves for every situation and makes the journey more supportive.

In this Egg Whisperer show, I share suggestions for patients and friends and family members of patients to help their fertility journey be one where they feel supported and loved.

My hope is that you’re able to apply this, no matter your situation, and find your fertility journey is better as a result.
