From Our Recent Webinar
Last month hundreds of rabbanim, rebbetzins, chassan and kallah teachers, and medical and mental health professionals watched a very informative Tahareinu webinar surveying medical advances for reproductive health.
Chronic Endometritis is an infection which is a major cause of miscarriage, often leading people directly to fertility treatments instead of the more simple route of ridding the infection first. Women can have a biopsy taken via hysteroscopy, and take a particular antibiotic if it’s positive.
Diagnosing POI - Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (formerly known as premature ovarian failure). AMH blood work is the best way to assess follicle reserves, and determine if medication will help conception or if embryo freezing is recommended. Not all medical providers will order this blood work - you might need to request it and/or go private - a worthy investment.
Female pain during intimacy. It’s a chicken and egg question: Are muscles tightening due to current pain or is the association with past pain making the woman tense up? In other words, is the cause physical or mental/emotional, or a combination? The first stage in diagnosis is to identify the specific location and type of pain. From there, we can hopefully determine the cause and therefore the treatment. We do not send anyone to a psychologist or physical therapist before they receive a medical diagnosis. Treatments may include physical therapy, nutrition, creams, laser surgery or others.
