Dear Fr. Jay,
I just finished listening to this episode and it was great, as usual. I was particularly interested in the woman who has PCOS, which is fairly common, and wonders if she will ever be able to have a family without IVF. IVF is a big business and instead of finding out what is truly wrong with an infertile woman they doctors push hormones or illicit procedures. We were infertile for 7 years and a reproductive endocrinologist who never even examined me suggested IVF. It is way overdone.
I was just about to comment about a place to get help for her when Archbishop Chaput of Denver posted an article about it. I hope you will pass the info onto this woman and anyone else who needs fertility treatment.
It is the Pope Paul VI Institute http://www.popepaulvi.com/ and they have success greater than IVF with Church approved means and they have doctors across the country who have trained there. They get to the bottom of the problem, not just mask it, etc. May God bless her.
This trailer on “There Be Dragons” shows more of what it’s about:
