Episode 133: It's never too early to consider fertility with Dr. Valerie Libby

The latest BOSS podcast features Dr. Valerie Libby, a fertility doctor and reproductive endocrinologist. We talked about how it is never too early to talk about fertility.   She discusses her personal experience with egg freezing during her residency and the importance of fertility preservation for surgical residents.   Dr. Libby shares details about a program she started at Shady Grove Fertility to provide discounted egg freezing services specifically for surgical residents, as studies have shown they have a higher burden of infertility due to the demanding nature of their training.   We also talked about how egg freezing works, the legal implications surrounding embryos and more.
