Fertility, Coronavirus and what patients should know and do regarding COVID-19 while planning to conceive
Over the past few weeks, many patients have asked about coronavirus 2019 /(COVID-19), and its possible effects on fertility treatment or pregnancy. The COVID-19 is a newer variation of Coronavirus, and experts are still learning about its unique characteristics. However, we have experience working through other waves of Coronaviruses to offer us guidance. In recent years, we have successfully navigated both SARS (Severe acute respiratory syndrome – Coronavirus) and MERS (Middle East respiratory syndrome – Coronavirus). Each day, experts release new studies and data that help us better understand prevention and quickly evolving treatment options.
Currently, all experts agree that the prevention of modifiable risk factors is paramount. Thus, we should all try to avoid exposure to the virus. Fortunately, there are a few simple things we can do to reduce the risks. Some suggestions include frequent hand washing, disinfection of surfaces, social distancing at home, and as well as in the workplace.
We are closely monitoring the global developments of the COVID-19 situation and vigilantly tracking the news and emerging studies. Additionally, we commit ourselves to implement enhanced protocols to ensure your safety and to keep our patients safe. Ultimately, our focus is to ensure we meet the needs of our patients while doing our part to keep you, our employees, and our communities safe.
