- The Doctors are following three couples who each are struggling with infertility on their journey to become parents. See their first appearances here.
When Sunsarae and Eric first joined The Doctors in September 2014, they shared that they had been struggling to conceive a child despite having no family history of infertility. At the time, Sunsarae said they had tried injectable hormone treatments but had not pursued in-vitro fertilization. She also revealed that she had been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Reproductive endocrinologist Dr. John Jain explained that PCOS causes an overproduction of male hormones in the ovary, which can inhibit egg follicles from ovulating.
Now, Sunsarae and Eric share with The Doctors that they have each lost more than 30 pounds and hope that by improving their overall health, they can improve their chances of conceiving a child.
“There’s been a lot of data that shows that women who are overweight or obese struggling with fertility issues dramatically improve their success of getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy if they lose weight. So, this is important,” OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton says.
“It’s the appropriate and holistic way to go about fertility issues: treating the entire person,” she adds.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says that Dr. Danielle Lane of the Lane Fertility Clinic has agreed to provide a free consultation to the couple.
