Guest: Alexander Quaas, OU Physicians Reproductive Endocrinologist
You have been looking forward to creating that beautiful family that you have always dreamed of and now is the time— but nothing is happening. Your experience is not unique. Many people have a hard time making babies. So many things have to be “just right” for the creative process to begin.
This Friday, December 6, at 9:15 a.m., our OU Medicine Web Chat takes your questions about infertility. We’ll bring in OU Medicine fertility expert, Dr. Alexander Quaas to explain why you may be unable to conceive and the options you can try to make it happen.
What is In Vitro Fertilization? Intrauterine Insemination? You may have heard about sperm and egg donation and surrogacy. There’s a lot to consider and we’re here to help you sort it all out.
Where can you find support? How can you cope with your feelings? What are the alternatives?
Submit your questions to the right and we’ll ask the expert to help you better understand your family’s future. Our last chat:
