Mafia Meet Dr. Lora Shahine, MD, FACOG - Part 2

Kaela & Sarah are joined again by board certified reproductive endocrinologist and recurrent miscarriage specialist, Dr. Lora Shahine!  In part two of this interview, Dr. Shahine is answering more listener questions about miscarriage with PGS tested embryos, efficacy of reproductive immunology, advice for an unexplained infertility diagnosis, and the one vs. two debate on embryo transfers.  She also gives some advice for men going through infertility and how they can be supportive partners (and even gives a few jerk off room tips).


We learn that Dr. Shahine struggled with infertility herself and she sheds some light on why so many doctors in reproductive medicine also do fertility treatments.  She talks about the thrill seeking hobby she picked up in her forties.  And finally, she tells us the real truth about whether on not doctors care if fertility patients shave their...ummm...legs! ;-)
