Infertility specialists may also recommend that patients with some medical conditions, such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), seek nutritional counseling prior to starting treatment. Dara recommends that both male and female patients reduce alcohol and caffeine consumption when trying to conceive. She stresses the importance of incorporating a variety of foods in one’s diet, including fruits, vegetables and lean proteins, as well as lots of water. Dara recommends including one source of full fat dairy products a day. She advises patients to choose fish sources that are low in mercury.

Dr. Benjamin Sandler, Infertility Specialist at RMA of New York, discusses miscarriage and recurrent pregnancy loss. Dr. Sandler describes the patient evaluation process as well as available treatment options. An Infertility Specialist will evaluate the patient’s uterus to rule out a uterine factor or uterine congenital anomalies. This can be performed by taking an x-ray (such as a hysterosalpingogram (HSG)) or by performing a saline sonogram. Dr. Sandler also describes how genetic abnormalities can cause miscarriage. In these cases, in vitro fertilization (IVF) with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) may be a viable treatment option. Dr. Sandler explains how recurrent pregnancy loss can be overcome with treatments that address uterine factors, genetic issues, endocrine issues and/or autoimmune diseases.
