Fertility for Patients of Latinx Heritage

What you'll learn

In this course, we cover the basics of "natural" conception, oral medications (e.g. clomiphene, letrozole), IUI and IVF. We then analyze the data on how often Latinx communities access fertility treatment and the comparable rates of success. We then look at how factors like PCOS, BMI, male factor infertility, tubal factor infertility, and environmental exposures can warrant adjustments in approach and rates of success.
