Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut Joins RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association® To Observe National Infertility Awareness Week

Posted by Tally Jacobs on Fri, Apr 11, 2014
  
  
  
 
National Public Education Initiative Takes Place April 20-April 26, 2014
 

 

NORWALK, CT (April 10, 2014) – Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association (NIAW) will recognize the twenty-fifth Anniversary of National Infertility Awareness Week®, April 20 through April 26, joining millions of women and men fighting the disease of infertility, healthcare professionals, psychologists and other thought leaders to promote greater awareness about infertility.

 

RESOLVE works to improve the lives of women and men living with infertility. One in eight U.S. couples of childbearing age is diagnosed with infertility. RESOLVE addresses this public health issue by providing community to these women and men, connecting them with others who can help, empowering them to find resolution and giving voice to their demands for access to all family building options.

 

“Education and awareness are our most powerful tools against infertility,” says Dr. Spencer Richlin, an RMA CT reproductive endocrinologist who will be participating in RESOLVE’s Advocacy Day on May 7, 2014 in Washington, DC.  “Through NIAW and Advocacy Day we are creating awareness about infertility among Congress and anyone who plans to have a family. After all, even patients who are otherwise healthy can struggle with infertility.”

 

Throughout the year, RMACT helps educate patients about healthy pregnancies and their fertility through individual medical care, seminars, workshops and written materials.  During NIAW, RMACT is hosting several free events in Connecticut:

 

April 23:

  • Fertility Yoga, 5:45 – 7:00 p.m., Trumbull Office (115 Technology Drive, suite C200)
  • Ladies Night In, 6:45 – 8:00 p.m., Trumbull Office (115 Technology Drive, suite C200)

 April 24:

  • Fertile Yoga, 5:45 – 7:00 p.m., Norwalk Office (20 Glover Avenue)
  • Prenatal Yoga, 7:15 – 8:15 p.m., Norwalk Office (20 Glover Avenue)

April 26:

  • Fertile Meal Planning, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m., Norwalk Office (20 Glover Avenue)

 

 

“The theme of National Infertility Awareness Week® is ‘Resolve to know more,’ and RESOLVE is delighted to work with practices and organizations across the country to call attention to the disease of infertility,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “This is a wonderful week when our community comes together to rally around the cause of infertility.”

RMACT to Host a Series of Fertility Seminars That Include Fertility Testing

Posted by Tally Jacobs on Fri, Apr 11, 2014
  
  
  

Fairfield County’s Leading Fertility Clinic Offers AMH Tests at Three Events

Stamford, CT (PRWEB) April 08, 2014

 

Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) is offering free anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) tests for women who want to know more about their reproductive and fertility health at three events throughout the year. During this event, women and their partners can learn more about their fertility during a short seminar about fertility basics and have blood drawn for a fertility test. The first event is being held on Thursday, April 10 at RMACT’s Stamford office.

 

“Knowledge is essential to fertility,” says Dr. Spencer Richlin, a board-certified endocrinologist and partner with RMACT. “Whether a woman chooses to start a family today or in the future, she should be making this decision with as much information as possible. An AMH test is a simple blood test that gives us great insight into a woman’s fertility and her family building options.”

 

RMACT’s Free Fertility Testing and Seminar Events are being held at three of RMACT’s locations in Fairfield County: 

 

  •     Stamford location, 1290 Summer Street, Suite 3200 on Thursday, April 10, 6 p.m.
  •     Danbury location, 67 Sand Pit Road, Suite 300 on Thursday, June 5, 6:00 p.m.
  •     Trumbull location, 115 Technology Drive, Suite C200 on Thursday, November 6 at 6 p.m.

 

Women who come to the RMACT event will have their blood drawn and will receive a phone call from an RMACT nurse with results within 10 business days. Since AMH is not affected by estrogen and other hormones, it can be tested at any point in the menstrual cycle and even in patients on birth control pills.

 

Testing AMH levels is widely recognized as a reliable indicator of a woman’s reproductive potential; however, it does not give the full picture. For a more thorough understanding of their fertility, patients should schedule an individual consultation at RMACT that includes a complete diagnostic work up. For women, diagnostic testing includes AMH, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and hysterosalpingogram (HSG). For men, who contribute to up to 40 percent of infertility issues, diagnostic testing includes semen analysis. Both partners will also discuss their family and medical histories.

Katherine Scott, BA, M.Sc. Joins Connecticut Fertility Practice RMACT

Posted by Greg Zola on Fri, Mar 21, 2014
  
  
  

Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut has hired Katherine Scott, BA, M.S.c., to be its new IVF Laboratory Manager. Scott has extensive experience in IVF, male infertility and cryopreservation.

 

Norwalk, CT March 18, 2014

Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) is proud to announce that Katherine Scott, BA, M.Sc. is the new in vitro fertilization (IVF) Laboratory Manager. Scott is responsible for all clinical laboratory functions in RMACT’s laboratories, including IVF, embryology, andrology and endocrinology. She works with RMACT’s team of Board Certified reproductive endocrinologists to perform assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and to lead clinical research.

“Katherine brings impressive credentials and leadership skills to RMACT’s laboratory,” says Dr. Mark Leondires, medical director at RMACT. “In particular, her experience and passion for working with embryos and preparing them for procedures such as IVF and SelectCCS (also known as Comprehensive Chromosome Screening) will help RMACT continue to provide patients with excellent care and to maximize pregnancy rates.”

Scott has experience in cryopreservation and vitrification of oocytes and embryos, as well as embryo manipulation, culture, transfer and biopsy. She also has experience with male infertility, including semen analysis, cryopreservation and preparation for intrauterine insemination (IUI), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and IVF.

“What drives me is seeing how our team’s clinical work in the lab affects the lives of our patients,” says Scott, who feels very fortunate to have joined the RMACT team. “Our patients are depending on us to excel and it is rewarding to be a part of their success.”

Scott’s affinity for math and statistics drew her to study psychology at University of Alabama. As she concluded her degree, she was recruited to provide statistical support for Nathan Treff, Ph.D., at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ). Scott’s enthusiasm, diligence, and technical acumen were quickly recognized as she moved into the Embryology laboratory and facilitated first with on-site training, then with institutional support in the pursuit of her Masters of Biochemical Sciences with an emphasis on Clinical Embryology and Andrology from Eastern Virginia Medical School. During her time in the laboratory, Scott has enjoyed the opportunity to refine her skills, participating in more than 10,000 IVF cycles. Armed with this experience, Scott began to travel, teaching vitrification to other laboratory professionals across the country.
