In-vitro fertilization (IVF for short) has received major publicity over the past few months.

Part of this publicity can be attributed to the rising conversations surrounding hormonal birth control, holistic medicine, diet, and fertility.

Allie Beth Stuckey, in a recent interview, sat down with former IVF specialist, Dr. Lauren Rubal, to discuss why she left the IVF industry and started her own fertility practice.

Dr. Lauren Rubal is a “USC-trained Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility physician… [who] focuses on fertility, recurrent miscarriage, painful, irregular, or heavy cycles, and menopause using an integrative lens.”

Dr. Rubal’s discussion with Allie will address more than just IVF and its ethical questions. Dr. Rubal will also discuss integrative medicine as opposed to conventional medicine and how hormonal birth control affects fertility and pregnancy.
