Whereas pregnancy brings joy to the family and would be mother, there are many couples who struggle to complete their family due to various medical reasons like infertility. First and foremost it needs to be understood that the reason for difficulty in conceiving could be male or female partner. Infertility is a condition where a couple is unable to conceive even after 12 months of regular unprotected intercourse and without any use of birth control measures. Infertility can be due to the woman (33%), the man (33%) and by both sexes or due to unknown problems (33%), approximately. There are various reasons for increase in cases of infertility that includes late marriages, lifestyle, hormonal issues etc.
There are two kinds of infertility which is seen in the patients who come to our IVF and Infertility specialist Dr Balvin Kaur Ghai at her clinic at Landran Road and at IVY Hospital Mohali, Punjab with problem in getting pregnant or conceiving. Primary infertility means that the couple has never conceived whereas secondary infertility means that the couple has experienced a pregnancy before and are now finding it difficult to conceive again. In most of the cultures infertility is assumed to be a woman’s problem which is not correct as mentioned above. Many men in India would refuse to undergo any kind of testing to find out the root cause of infertility and try to get married again to another girl on the pretext of infertility of the first wife.
Newer advances in medical technologies have given these couples hope of completing their family. There are various options available with IVF and Infertility specialist Dr Balvin Kaur Ghai depending upon the medical condition of both the partners that include, IUI, IVF, Donor Egg IVF, Donor Sperm IVF, Lap. Surgery and Surrogacy. Although a woman may need just one or two therapies to restore fertility, it’s possible that several different types of treatment may be needed before she is able to conceive.
Stimulating ovulation with fertility drugs – Fertility drugs are the main treatment for women who are infertile due to ovulation disorders. These medications regulate or induce ovulation.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) – In this procedure the healthy and concentrated sperm from the male is placed directly into the uterus at an appropriate time of ovulation for the female.
Surgery to restore fertility – Uterine problems such as endometrial polyps, a uterine septum or intrauterine scar tissue can be treated with hysteroscopic surgery. Ovarian Cysts which are preventing pregnancy can be removed through surgery. The blocked fallopian tubes can be opened either through HSG or by laparoscopic surgery.
In-vitro Fertilization (IVF) – In this procedure, our infertily and IVF specialist Dr Balvin Kaur Ghai, takes the eggs from the female and sperm from the male and fertilized outside the body. If the quality of the egg or the sperm is not good then they can be taken from donors (remember Vicky Donor). The fertilized egg is then placed into the uterus of the female.
