Testing Your Fertility
2022/06/05
Welcome to Season 2 of As a Woman: Fertility, Hormones, and Beyond. While the podcast you know and love has been around since 2019, this week Natalie takes the time to re-introduce herself and the mission behind this podcast as we head into a new season. She then dives into her first new segment, Fertility in the News, where this week she examines Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy’s interview with Politico where he speaks about African American maternal mortality. We know that Black mothers are not taken as seriously when it comes to their symptoms, and we can’t dismiss the impact that restricting contraceptive access and abortion will have on this mortality rate.   Natalie then jumps into today’s topic of fertility testing: if you should get your fertility tested, what exactly that means, and what you can do with the information collected. Lastly, she concludes with another new segment, FFS - For Fertility’s Sake, where she answers your questions submitted on social media! Is low sperm count reversible? How long after coming off of a long-acting reversible contraception should your be period be back to normal? These questions and more are answered in the Season 2 premiere of As a Woman: Fertility, Hormones, and Beyond!  Thanks to our amazing sponsor!

IVF and Abortion
2022/05/15
Join host Dr. Natalie Crawford as she talks about reproductive rights and what my happen to IVF is abortion laws become state driven. Why are abortion and IVF linked? A draft opinion from the Supreme Court indicated that abortion rights will likely be overturned. If this occurs, many states have trigger laws in place which will immediately limit abortion access. However, what many people don’t understand is that some states also have language defining life at conception or fertilization - known as “personhood bills” and these personhood bills would place limitations on access to reproductive technology, such as IVF to conceive. Putting your thoughts on abortion aside, listen to what strict abortion bills may do for all reproductive rights, including for those with infertility.
