Free Waikato Seminar on Fertility Treatment Options

Free Waikato Seminar on Fertility Treatment Options

Waikato women facing Fertility problems will benefit from a free seminar with guest speaker Dr Kirsty Gendall on “Fertility Treatment Options” on Wednesday 28 May. The meeting hosted by local charity Insight Endometriosis will be held at CCS Disability Action, 17 Claudelands Road, Hamilton, from 7pm.

The free seminar is part of an education programme offered by Insight Endometriosis, a community organisation supporting women with endometriosis.

Insight Endometriosis educator Annette Evans, said “A special invitation is extended to women of all ages and couples facing fertility problems as well as health professionals with an interest in fertility treatments.”

Endometriosis is a significant and common condition, which is a leading cause of fertility problems and can dramatically impair quality of life.

Annette said “Many women are diagnosed as a result of fertility investigations yet experienced period pain for often half a lifetime. Women and teen girls need to seek help when period pain first affects their lifestyle. Their GP can refer them to a gynaecologist specialising in endometriosis, or they can self-refer to a gynaecologist in private practice.”

‘Insight Endometriosis supports women to make informed decisions about treatment options and lifestyle changes, and ensures that women and their families aren’t left facing a significant health problem in isolation’, she said.

Insight Endometriosis extends a huge thank you to Dr Kirsty Gendall for so generously giving of her time and expertise. Thanks also to CCS Disability Action for providing the venue.
