Register for RRM Research Updates this April. Discuss shared decision making (SDM), the use of a tool in this process, and preliminary results of a study of an SDM tool designed to assist women to choose an appropriate FABM (Fertility awareness-based Method). Look at other research Dr. Marguerite Duane and her team at FACTS are working on, and learn where the priorities are in the area of fertility awareness education.
This webinar explores the science and safety of of botanical medicine (herbal medicine) options, that could be used to strategically and holistically impact and bring balance to female and male reproductive hormones.
This lecture will cover the physiological impacts of medicinal botanicals for the most common hormone imbalances affecting reproductive health, including but not limited to, reduced luteal phase, PCOS, estrogen dominance, low progesterone, reduced testosterone, elevated androgens, and amenorrhea. Review botanicals for energy metabolism, stress/adrenal hormones, and thyroid health. The current literature will be covered to support continued research and understanding developed for the application of these therapies clinically to improve reproductive health and outcomes.
Studies have shown an association between PCO and the gut microbiome. This webinar will briefly review PCO and what is "the microbiome"? Learners will gain an understanding of how the microbiome impacts health and disease, including the potential relationship with PCO, and be able to suggest ways to optimize outcomes for patients with PCO.
With a better understanding of the role of the microbiome and PCO, what possible mechanisms for new treatment approaches could be developed in this direction? Bring your thoughts and register to join us next Wednesday!
Presented by Paul Carpentier, a family physician, now specializing in women’s healthcare, recently teamed with Catholic Health Services of Long Island to successfully open the latest Gianna Center for Women’s Health and Fertility and currently serves as its medical director. Journal Club sessions provide a critical appraisal of published research relevant to the field of Restorative Reproductive Medicine. These sessions are designed to increase providers’ competence to critically evaluate research by increasing their knowledge of the scientific method, research design, and common biases. Chosen articles will be posted and sent by email a few weeks before the Journal Club is held.
In collaboration with the AIRRM (Australasian Institute for Restorative Reproductive Medicine), IIRRM will be hosting its Annual Meeting as part of the Frist Global Summit for Restorative Reproductive Medicine.

Prof Sunni Mumford will discuss emerging research investigating the role of vitamin D and other lifestyle and dietary factors on female reproductive health and couple fertility.
Dr. Mumford is a reproductive and nutritional epidemiologist and Earl Stadtman Investigator in the Epidemiology Branch of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Her research focuses on modifiable dietary and lifestyle factors across the life course that affect reproduction among women, men, and couples.
IIRRM Journal Club sessions provide a critical appraisal of published research relevant to the field of Restorative Reproductive Medicine. These sessions are designed to increase providers’ competence to critically evaluate research by increasing their knowledge of the scientific method, research design, and common biases. Improvements in knowledge and competence will translate into improvements in clinician performance as they use their understanding of research to provide better care and communication to their patients and apply the results from research to clinical practice.
Review the findings of a population based-cohort study examining the impact of celiac disease on women's reproductive health from Grode et. al.1 in October's Journal club, with Dr. Joseph Stanford, MD, MSPH. "How does celiac disease (CD) influence women’s reproductive life, both prior to and after the diagnosis?". Download the article and question prompts ahead of the webinar.
