Reproductive medicine is a field of medicine specialized in hormonal problems that pertain to reproduction and infertility at any stage of life.
While most OB/GYN-REI specialists are focused in the infertility component of this field, Dr. Neil Goodman has expertise in the overall treatment of hormonal dysfunction in both men and women.
Women's reproductive health
In women, reproductive hormone problems often cause problems such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), early or natural menopause, and infertility. Symptoms of reproductive hormone problems include abnormal periods, testosterone excess (with acne, hair growth and hair thinning), low libido and sexual dysfunction, ovarian dysfunction, as well as infertility issues.
Men's Reproductive Health
In men, reproductive hormone problems can cause low testosterone and infertility. Symptoms of reproductive hormone problems in men include loss of sex drive and erectile dysfunction, loss of virilization including fatigue and decreased muscle mass, as well as infertility issues.
