EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

From adolescence through menopause

Sarah Berga, MD

 

In my training I am really a neuroscientist, in my practice every day I see patients who nobody else wants to take care of anymore. I am asked to solve all sorts of unusual endocrine problems. We make a lot of diagnoses and a lot of referrals to standard endocrinologists because we find a lot of endocrine disease in our infertility and endocrine populations. Really the inspiration for today’s talk is to teach everyone a little endocrinology who wants to lean it. I never try to force anyone into this but it is important to understand that not all hormones are the same and how to use them wisely.
