Q: I had planned to have a surgical procedure; why has it been postponed?

A: The ASRM, American College of Surgeons, and many other organizations have recommended that surgical procedures that are not deemed urgent (urgent meaning that someone needs the surgery to avoid serious illness or death) be delayed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Also, some fertility practices have diverted their medical equipment or supplies to help hospitals and their critical care units fight COVID-19.
