Overview

This workshop will present the current validated approaches to important and common conditions which are encountered by the clinician who has an interest in reproductive medicine.

Besides fairly extensive input on PCOS and premature ovarian insufficiency, other clinical challenges such as recurrent miscarriage, endometriosis and the impact of lifestyle on fertility will be addressed. In addition, the challenges in male infertility management and the current status of female androgen replacement will be reviewed.

Many of the workshop faculty have been central to the development and management of women with these clinical problems.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants should gain an understanding of the challenges of managing different clinical problems in Reproductive Medicine.
  • Current diagnostic and therapeutic approaches will be presented and should be accessible to participants in the future.
