My Journey in Medicine

I chose to specialize in reproductive medicine because I enjoy helping women and couples take control of their fertility and build the family of their dreams. Currently, I care for patients at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York, an international leader in the field of reproductive medicine. I also teach medical students part-time about obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, which is where I completed my residency. 

My specific areas of expertise include diagnosing and treating reproductive conditions, fertility preservation techniques (egg or embryo freezing), in vitro fertilization with preimplantation genetic testing of embryos, and LBGTQ family planning. In my work, I also often perform minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopy and hysteroscopy to treat conditions including endometriosis and uterine factor infertility. 

Besides practicing medicine, I enjoy being a physician scientist who participates in cutting-edge research that drives clinical decision-making. My research has focused on male fertility, personalized medicine, genetics, and embryonic gene expression networks.

When I’m not seeing patients or conducting clinical research, I love to educate people about fertility, conception, and pregnancy-related topics through my blog, called “The Lucky Egg,” and my Instagram, @lucky.sekhon. I’ve also been quoted in several media outlets, including “Ask Men,” on the subject of male fertility testing and factors that can impact male fertility, Weight Watchers on uterine fibroids, and Well and Good about COVID vaccination and pregnancy. 

It’s a true pleasure to collaborate with Flo about gynecological topics and help spread empowering information to millions of users worldwide.
