"Fighting At The Fertility Front: Winning Your Battle To Bring Home Baby" is the first navigational guide to infertility written specifically for U.S. military, Veterans & their partners. It presents easy to read medical information about basic fertility from a leading civilian IVF expert, placed in a the context of modern military service. As America picks up the pieces from more than a decade of war, a caliper has never been laid across one critical casualty--the long-term consequences of military service on the fertility of those in uniform. Written for a general audience, "Fighting At The Fertility Front" includes separate chapters for men & women and follows their journeys from reception & basic training to far-away places like the open burn pits of Afghanistan, and back. The list of ingredients here is provocative: Sex, soldiers' fertility, overseas service, and the "military-industrial-congressional complex" that funds it all...or, in the case of fertility treatment for Veterans, paradoxically denies funding. This one-of-a-kind book confronts some deeply unsettling questions from our armed service members and their loved ones: Should I be worried about fertility if my partner is in the military? How can hazards of defense work diminish future reproductive capacity? Is it true that the Army's standard combat uniform is coated with a potential reproductive toxin? The answers may surprise you. Dr. E Scott Sills was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and obtained his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University. He holds a PhD (molecular biology) from London's University of Westminster and an MD from University of Tennessee (1992). Following residency in obstetrics & gynecology at NYU Downtown Hospital, Dr. Sills completed a subspecialty fellowship in reproductive endocrinology at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell University. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology, and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, American College of Surgeons, Royal College of Physicians (Ireland), and Society of Biology (UK).
