We will learn about the impact of pre-existing stress, trauma, and anxiety on reproductive health and the vicious cycle that often ensues. Dr. Messerlian will also discuss the comorbidity between reproductive outcomes and mental health and the importance of addressing mental health when trying to conceive.
