Dr. Zaher Merhi is the founder and the medical director of Rejuvenating Fertility Center (RFC) and an internationally recognized fertility doctor, lecturer, editor, and grant reviewer. Dr. Merhi is an active researcher interested in women with Low Ovarian Reserve (low AMH/high FSH), PRP ovarian rejuvenation, gentle stimulation IVF, natural IVF, and IVF without injectables. His research focuses on technologies, such as ozone sauna, that could improve egg quality, especially in women with endometriosis, immune disorders, and PCOS. Dr. Merhi is also experienced in treating overweight women and those who had weight loss surgery, and he is a strong proponent of the LGBTQ community. He has proudly served the Arabic and Jewish communities for over two decades.

In this episode, Dr. Merhi and I discuss fertility and taking a more unconventional approach to IVF. He shares his unique approach to IVF and preserving fertility, the most common causes of fertility issues, how environmental factors contribute to fertility issues, why he focuses on egg quality instead of egg quantity, his passion for making positive changes in the field, the non-traditional IVF approaches the Dr. Merhi practices, and so much more!
