Dr. Adamson was quoted in an article in The Economist. Here is an excerpt.
“…Can IVF be made cheaper? Experts see two ways to try. The first is to cut the use of drugs, tests or procedures that for many couples are clearly unnecessary. The second is to work out how the cost and effectiveness of simpler methods compare with those of the standard package…
Dr. Adamson was quoted in Health Magazine’s March 2016 issue, in a featured article entitled, “Your Fertility, A puberty to menopause handbook covering the facts of life every woman needs to know.”
HelloGiggles said, “About two weeks ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a recommendation directed toward young women who weren’t taking birth control, recommending that any women who ‘could get pregnant’ should avoid imbibing alcohol unless they’re using contraception….So what’s the real truth here?
A Private Heartache: Facing Infertility
Remember that “birds and bees” talk when you were an adolescent? Invariably, it included a caution against unprotected sex – because “it only takes once” to conceive a baby. But for those couples experiencing infertility, conception is not that easy.
Infertility – or the inability to conceive after one year of regular, unprotected intercourse – affects more couples than you may think, said David Adamson, MD, founder and CEO of ARC fertility. “Over their lifetime, about one couple in six will have diffculty getting pregnant when they want to,” he explained.
Everybody Is Doing It?
Adamson suggests egg freezing is a better choice for women with certain health problems that affect their egg quality. For example, women undergoing cancer treatment or those with a family history of premature ovarian failure would benefit. It’s also ideal for women who want to preserve their fertility until a time that’s more suitable for them to have a baby.
Dr. Adamson was interviewed for an article in Vivala.com about Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

It’s important to look out for symptoms that may indicate that you have PCOS. One of the things to keep in mind? “Irregular menstrual periods or no periods at all” explains Dr. Adamson.

Your Hormones, Your Health
Feeling bloated, irritable, or just not your best? A hormone imbalance could be to blame. Hormones are chemical “messengers” that impact the way your cells and organs function. It’s normal for your levels to shift at different times of your life, such as before and during your period or a pregnancy, or during menopause. But some medications and health issues can cause them to go up or down, too.
