Dr. Sheeva Talebian is a board-certified reproductive endocrinologist. After graduating top of her class from Colombia University, she went on to get her medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine and continued her training at New York University where she did her residency in obstetrics and gynecology and a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.
Sheeva joined me on the mbgpodcast to talk about what inspired her to become a fertility specialist and why the future of fertility testing excites her. She tells about recent successes with her patients after starting to blend her traditional Western medical background with more Eastern-influenced practices such as a Traditional Chinese Medicine diet, acupuncture, and anti-inflammatory supplements. In this podcast you’ll hear about:The main reasons most couples are not getting pregnant (and the myths debunked)The less-talked about role that men’s sperm has in infertility and the conversation you need to haveThe key factors to consider when considering fertility testing and the age she recommends women start.We also discuss the role of environmental toxins and genetics in fertility and Sheeva says, “the two can collide and make it the perfect storm.” She lets us in on the first step to take when wondering about your fertility and where to go from there. For women looking to get pregnant, new mothers, or those eager to understand more, Sheeva’s wealth of knowledge surrounding the science of fertility as well as what you can do to find success in the process, is empowering and will help you captain your own ship.
