Month: September 2018
September is PCOS Awareness Month! Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a frustrating condition that can have symptoms like weight gain, excess hair on the face, stress, anxiety, depression, and…infertility. For this month, Progyny is doing a three-part series on PCOS and Vios physician Dr. Angeline Beltsos participates to provide background on PCOS and how it affects women.

Interview with: Allison Nelson, MD, The Lake Country Mom, September 9, 2018
Infertility is one of the most difficult situations for OB/Gyns to tackle with their patients. It is deeply personal and comes with an array of emotions, including shame, anger, jealousy and despair. In the process of dealing with all these emotions, it can be difficult for women to know where to turn. Helping women through infertility struggles usually starts with their primary OB/Gyn; however there are women who will require an infertility specialist. I had a chance to sit down with Dr. Ellen Hayes, a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist who works at Vios Fertility Institute. Vios Fertility Institute is relatively new to the Milwaukee area and recently opened a clinic location in Johnson Creek (in other words, the closest, local option for Lake Country moms). Check out the interview on The Lake Country Mom blog here.

Angie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
We started Vios Fertility to help patients achieve the dream of a family. I found my calling as a medical student to pursue a career in reproductive endocrinology and fertility treatment. What a ride it has been! Absolutely amazing! Read the full interview here.
