STATS in the JEWISH COMMUNITY
Based on JFF's Medical Advisory Council Chair - Dr. Daniel Shapiro, MD RBA
- All three denominations (reform, conservative, and orthodox) will experience age related decline in fertility equally. The age brackets won't vary but diagnosis at presentation likely will.
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and male factor will be most prevalent among the orthodox because of high rates of obesity in the orthodox community and because marriage and attempts at fecundity start earlier than among conservative and reform.
- Conversely the reform and conservative would be more likely to experience egg related issues as they typically have first attempt at pregnancy older than orthodox women.
