About us

Prati and Crystal are two young female reproductive endocrinologists practicing fertility medicine and gynecology in Toronto.

They co-founded The Conception Diaries with a desire to help patients struggling with fertility understand reproductive biology and the science behind fertility treatments. Their goal is to demystify and declutter the information available on the Internet, and to empower women to be proactive about their fertility. They hope to be a source of knowledge and support for patients with infertility and to provide valuable information that will help patients succeed during their fertility journey.

Both Prati and Crystal specialize in all areas of reproductive medicine: assisted reproductive technology and in vitro fertilization (ART/IVF), reproductive surgery, oocyte cryopreservation, third-party reproduction, oncofertility, and same-sex reproduction.
