TALK 1 FERTILITY INSIGHTS
28 AUGUST 2018
PROFESSOR BILL LEDGER
Head & Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
University of New South Wales
In this talk we will cover what you might need to consider in your 20s, 30s and 40s regarding fertility. We will explore the science and the facts behind preserving fertility through egg freezing, IVF, egg donors and surrogacy, and fertility options for same sex couples.
We ask why egg freezing might be a good idea, who should (and should not) consider it, what you’d have to do and how well it might work. We will also end with a look into the future of fertility medicine.
