Sasha Hakman, MD
An evidence based guide to women's health and fitness
Optimizing your fitness through weight training before and after your fertility journey
Exercise & reproduction: is there a connection?
Women suffering from various reproductive disorders are often counseled to lose weight, exercise more and improve their diet. Many patients with whom I discuss lifestyle modification, insist that they have tried everything with no avail. This is likely true, since knowing your nutritional needs and how to properly navigate weight loss can be quite difficult and confusing. Like most things in medicine, every person must be "prescribed" a specific nutrition and exercise plan in order to reach their goals.
Unfortunately, in a 30 minute consultation in a doctor's office, where the primary focus is your diagnosis & treatment, there is little time remaining to provide in depth teaching to help achieve your lifestyle goals. My mission, is to help you reach your goals in an evidence based fashion.
