Dr. Micah Hill will present a talk titled "Premature progesterone elevation and in vitro fertilization outcomes.” The presentation explores the biology of natural progesterone production and why it occurs prematurely with ovarian stimulation during IVF. It then focuses on scientific evidence that premature progesterone elevation diminishes embryo implantation and live birth.
Dr. Hill is an REI physician and Medical Student Clerkship Coordinator with the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and an Assistant Professor of OBGYN with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.
