“There was an air of luxury about the room, but it was the luxury of expert simplicity; she noted the costly furniture, carefully chosen for comfort, bought somewhere at a time when luxury had still been an art.

I wrote up a case from a patient of mine who was diagnosed and successfully treated for functional hypothalamic amenorrhea. A colleague of mine who specializes in fertility wellness helped me a great deal with this case. She and I got together on Zoom to discuss details of the case. I hope you enjoy the video and the show notes.
