We discuss the latest research and treatment associated with fertility, with Dr. Mazen Abdallah, Medical Director for the Houston Fertility Institute and Assistant Professor at UTHealth.

Dr. Abdallah says it’s a common misconception that fertility problems just affect women who’ve “waited too long” to have kids.

And we learn about Spaghetti Code, a new play from Houston’s Horse Head Theatre running July 12-28, about the lengths one couple will go to in order to have a baby.

The play is by writer Abby Koening, who talks about her own struggles with fertility and what dialogue she hopes the dark comedy will evoke among its audience.
