Featuring GP and IVF mum, Dr Stephanie Ooi, it answers practical questions surrounding the subject – all of them sent in by Taboo Talk listeners. Dr Stephanie debunks myths and delivers advice on fertility-related worries and queries surrounding age, IVF, egg freezing, lifestyle factors, genetics, hormonal contraceptives, PCOS, endometriosis, and even the Covid vaccine. Remember: we ask the questions, so you don’t have to.
