Ep 75: PCOS and Fertility with Dr. Lucky Sekhon
Fertility Forward Episode 75:
The month of September is PCOS Awareness Month and, in today’s episode, we are joined by Dr. Lucky Sekhon, OBGYN and fertility specialist based in New York City, to discuss polycystic ovarian syndrome and her unconventional approach to the disorder. We also dive a little deeper into the emotional impact of PCOS and the loss of control that patients often feel when diagnosed during their fertility journey, with Dr. Sekhon emphasizing the importance of reframing it as an ‘alternate state of being’ rather than a disease. We also share our expertise in nutrition, mental health, and physical health, weighing in on the roles that whole foods, perspective, and exercise play in the treatment and management of this confusing and complex alternative state of being. Tune in today to learn more!

Ep 73: PCOS Nutrition with Melissa Groves Azzaro
Fertility Forward Episode 73:
So often when women struggle with their fertility, they are told to follow treatments that may not work for their bodies. Perhaps they are told to lose weight or live healthier, but for many women, this is not enough. Melissa Groves Azzaro is an integrative dietician who helps women with hormone imbalances, PCOS, and fertility issues regain their periods and get pregnant naturally. Through her functional approach to figure out the root cause of infertility issues, Melissa is able to tailor nutrition, supplement, and lifestyle plans to meet her clients’ needs. In this episode, we talk about what PCOS is and the various ways it can manifest. Because it is a syndrome, it can present itself differently in everyone and we get to her some great nutritional advice for those who have the condition. Of course, there is no universal diet or lifestyle plan, but there are some principles that can help women across the board. Our conversation also touches on the importance of balance, some supplements Melissa typically recommends to her patients, and the value of using a food-first approach. Tune in today to hear it all.
