Date: Thursday, May 9, 2019

Rachel Mejia, D.O., and Jessica Kresowik, M.D., will be joined by experts in the field including G. Wright Bates, Jr., M.D., Rick Legro, M.D., Kathleen Hoeger, M.D., M.P.H.,  and Steven Lindheim, M.D., to discuss their recent Fertility and Sterility manuscript, "A randomized controlled trial of combination letrozole and clomiphene  citrate or letrozole alone for ovulation induction in women with polycystic ovary syndrome."
Questions and issues addressed include:

  • Available options for ovulation induction for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
