Dr. Debra Minjarez is a Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist for the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine. She has been with CCRM since 2001, and she works with patients experiencing any number of fertility and reproductive issues. My wife and I visited her in early 2013 to discuss infertility treatments and grew to adore Dr. Minjarez for her thoughtful and thorough approach, and, more importantly, for her warmth, understanding, and counsel. Infertility is a subject experienced more widely than it would first appear, but rarely discussed. That’s one reason I am so proud of this episode and why write so candidly about the subject. You can find my essay about the experience of getting my sperm tested here, and my essay about what it’s like to go through an Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) that was not successful here. Language and subject matter may be NSFW.
Dr. Minjarez and I discuss infertility and its many related issues included types of treatment, risk factors, her role as counselor, and, yep, who gets to order the dirty magazines and movies for the sperm collection room. I think you will very much enjoy this episode, and if you’re experiencing infertility issues, please know that you are not alone.
