Reproductive Healthcare Resources
IFFS is pleased to recommend the following resources that may be of interest to IFFS members and other reproductive healthcare practitioners.
All About Fertility is an online resource of articles, webinars and videos for patients, with a support forum for men. Resources cover infertility, symptoms, treatment options and tests, and other aspects of male & female infertility. Articles are written by fertility experts and are reviewed for accuracy and quality. The website is non commercial, with no paid content or advertising. IFFS has endorsed All About Fertility as an educational resource. All About Fertility is supported by Cryos.
The European Union-funded FREIA research project stands for "Female Reproductive toxicity of EDCs: a human Evidence-based screening and Identification Approach". FREIA introduced a webinar in February 2020 and an inaugural newsletter in March, with the goal of sharing key information and findings related to avoiding the harmful effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on women's reproductive health. Review the February webinar and look for future webinars here. Be sure to download the fact sheet, as well as a useful info-graphic available in multiple languages. IFFS is a proud partner organization in the FREIA project, and the full list of consortium members and partners can be found here.
In 2019, the Endocrine Society’s Endocrine Disruptor Chemical Advisory Group developed a Task Force to create resources that would assist clinicians in understanding EDCs and guide evidence-based discussions with their patients. The task force created a series of short videos that were released in January 2020 and can be found here https://www.endocrine.org/topics/edc/talking-edcs.
