The Jelliepod is back with another expert episode focussing on Covid and fertility. Jamie and Ellie are joined by Medical Director of IVI London Dr. Cesar Diaz-Garcia MD PhD Assoc Prof to talk about the impact of the vaccine and Covid-19 on fertility, the AMH and menstrual cycles.
The AMH test
We quiz Dr. Diaz-Garcia on the AMH test and why there’s often a discrepancy in results between clinics that confuses us all. We ask if it’s possible to improve your AMH and what you might be doing to damage it.
Covid and fertility
We discuss the effects of Covid and its impact on the AMH, as well as the vaccine and what it’s doing to menstrual cycles and fertility in general. We ask about fertility treatment in relation to having a vaccine, what the best advice is, and when it might be best to wait.
