Author Lynn M. Collins to Hold Book Event at Gale Library
Author Lynn M. Collins will read from her new book, Sperm Tales: An Informative Guide Through the Challenges of Infertility at the Gale Library, 16 S Main Street, Newton, NH on Wednesday, April 6th at 6:30 p.m.
According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, infertility affects about 6.1 people in the United States, which is about ten percent of the reproductive age population. Collins’ unique fertility guide, Sperm Tales: An Informative Guide Through the Challenges of Infertility, provides clear answers to questions of all women of childbearing age, and helps them gain a better understanding of fertility and the potential roadblocks they may confront if they wait too long.
This easy-to-read guide explains how infertility affects both men and women, while covering the latest treatments. For instance, How to Choose a Fertility Center, The Initial Consult, Causes of Female/Male Infertility, Procedures for an IUI, In Vitro Fertilization, Same Sex Couples, Sperm Banking, Egg Donors and much more. Sperm Tales also provides a list of acronyms, a glossary of terms and humorous asides from an imaginary friendly sperm named Spanky.
Collins draws on her experience as a laboratory supervisor for a leading national sperm bank and manager for a multi-million dollar infertility laboratory. Written with compassion, humor, as well as clear step-by-step information about the numerous challenges — medical and otherwise — Sperm Tales walks you through the journey of infertility treatment.
Lynn M. Collins was trained in the Infertility field at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA. She later set up and worked for more than 10 years at an Infertility Lab and Sperm Bank in Danvers, MA. She lives in Newton, New Hampshire with her husband, Kevin, black lab Shamus and cat Trapper John.
