Infertility Treatment

Benefit from the best infertility treatment in India

Have you tried everything to become pregnant, but failed, and now you are losing hope?

The inability to conceive is often considered a curse in many societies. There have been instances where couples are mentally traumatised by society for being unable to bear a progeny. While adoption is an option, innate human nature often calls for having a biological child. 

A biological child is often considered to bring substantial amounts of joy to a relationship. However, sometimes some women find that they are not able to conceive as easily as other women. The inability to get pregnant is one of the leading causes of depression in childless couples. 

As age progresses a lot of couples become anxious about their ability to get pregnant because with age the chances of conceiving also narrow down.

If you are determined, take a step and walk down the beautiful journey of parenthood, address your infertility issues and get treatment for the same.

By addressing your inability to conceive a child you take a step towards parenthood. However, the road to parenthood is a long journey which comprises consultation, check-ups, undergoing different scans, blood tests, and follow-up check-ups.

With proper treatment, mental support and guidance you can overcome the barrier of infertility that kept you distant from having your baby. 

The earlier you start with the treatment, the better and faster results you will get. 

Overcome your barrier of being judged by society and get yourself treated for infertility like the Smith family did.

Mrs and Mr Smith were leading a happy married life with some occasional ups and downs, but the deeply in love couple who always felt that they together can make a family felt a void in their lives. Whenever they used to go out for holidays with their friends they always felt that a child could bring a new zeal to their life. However, despite trying to have a child the couple failed every pregnancy test.

Anxious about the failure to conceive a child the couple consulted a gynaecologist to understand this inability. The doctor suggested a few tests for the couple to understand the underlying cause of infertility. The tests were advised for both Mrs and Mr Smith. 

The test reports showed that Mrs Smith had a blockage in her fallopian tube which prevented the fertilisation of eggs. The diagnosis left the couple disheartened and they started searching for treatments that reverse the blockage in the fallopian tubes. After searching online for some time the couple came across to MedicoExpert and left a query with the patient care team.

The MedicoExperts patient care department contacted Mr Smith and explained his issue to the team and forwarded all the reports to the patient care manager of MedicoExpert. After receiving the reports, online video consultation is arranged with one of our empanelled gynaecologists for the treatment.

During the consultation, the doctor explained the laparoscopic opening up the blockage of the fallopian tube procedure in detail and its success rate to the couple.

After understanding all the aspects of the treatment, the couple decided to go for the infertility treatment with our empanelled doctor.

The couple flew to India for the treatment. The patient care team of MedicoExpert ensure hassle-free hospitalisation for Mrs Sarah Smith. After the paperwork was done the doctors conducted a few blood tests to understand Sarah’s overall health condition. 

Once the reports showed that Sarah can undergo the surgery the doctor performed the laparoscopic procedure to open the blocked fallopian tube.

Within a few days after the surgery, Sarah was discharged from the hospital. Within a few months after the procedure, Sarah conceived and delivered a beautiful son.

Like the Smith family, you can enjoy the joy of parenthood by getting the best treatment to reverse the cause of your infertility. But before understanding more about infertility treatment in India, let us understand more about infertility.

what is infertility

What is infertility?

Infertility is a common medical condition that causes the incapacity to get pregnant despite having frequent sexual intercourse with no contraceptive measures taken.  

There has been a significant rise in couples facing infertility issues. Studies suggest that one in every six couples faces infertility. Doctors have identified a few common reasons for this upsurge in infertile couples which include:

 

  • Delay in planning a child
  • Alterations in semen quality due to unhealthy lifestyle

What are the causes of infertility?

The cause of infertility is not limited to one gender. The cause of infertility can be both in men and women.

 

Causes of infertility in men:

Obstruction in the reproductive tract of men usually affects the proper ejaculation of sperm. The blockage occurs in the tubes like ejaculatory ducts and the seminal vesicle that carry semen.

These blockages are usually caused due to some injury or infection in the genital tract. 

Some hormones like testosterone play a crucial role in regulating sperm production. Sometimes some abnormality in the production of hormones either can affect sperm production. 

The failure of testicles to produce sperm is also a cause of infertility. The failure to produce sperm is often impaired after treatments like chemotherapy. 

Sometimes abnormal morphology of the sperm can affect one’s facility. Abnormality of sperm morphology is usually caused due to age, viral infection or usage of certain drugs.

Causes of infertility in women:

A woman has regular menstrual periods also known as menstrual cycles, on average, 28 days long. A regular cycle occurring between 24 to 32 days always indicates that a female is ovulating regularly.

Ovulation of an egg is very essential for pregnancy. If a woman has menstrual cycles at an interval of greater than 35 days, it may indicate that she is not ovulating an egg as required, or even at all.

Thus, a comprehensive evaluation is indicated in females who are attempting pregnancy if their menstrual cycles are infrequent or irregular.

 

When a woman does not ovulate during a menstrual cycle, it is called anovulation. The causes for the same are enlisted below :

  •  Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Diminished Ovarian Reserves
  • Improper functioning of hypothalamus and pituitary glands
  • Premature ovarian insufficiency or Premature Menopause
  • Menopause

 

One can’t prevent many causes of blocked fallopian tubes, but one can always decrease the risk of sexually transmitted infections by practising safe sex.

Fallopian Tube occlusion or blockage is one of the common causes of infertility in females since an ovulated egg will not be able to get fertilised by sperm or reach the endometrial cavity if the tube is blocked. 

 

Risk factors for blocked fallopian tubes comprise:

  • History of pelvic infection
  • History of ruptured appendicitis
  • History of sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhoea, chlamydia etc
  • Known endometriosis

Uterine or cervical abnormalities, including abnormalities with the cervix, polyps in the uterus, or the shape of the uterus.

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous (benign) tumours that block the fallopian tubes or prevent a fertilised egg from implanting in the uterus, resulting in infertility.

Uterine disorders could be:

  • Inflammatory in nature like endometriosis
  • Congenital in nature like a septate uterus
  • Benign in nature like uterine fibroids 

The imbalance of reproductive hormones can cause infertility.

Besides the above-mentioned factors environmental and lifestyle factors like smoking, excessive alcohol intake and obesity can affect fertility too.

Additionally, living or working in places that have a high content of pollutants and toxins can also affect fertility. 

What are the different types of infertility?

There are different types of infertility in females which mainly depend on the previous pregnancies, causes, timeline, and treatment approach.

 

Primary infertility in women and Secondary Infertility 

Primary infertility is a condition when a woman cannot become pregnant and has never become pregnant. Usually, this type of infertility is caused due to imbalance of endocrine hormones.

Secondary infertility type occurs in a woman who is unable to conceive despite giving birth to a child from her previous pregnancy that occurred without any treatment. Sometimes, secondary infertility happens after an abortion, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, etc.

Generally, inflammatory diseases of genital organs cause secondary infertility.

 

Relative and Absolute Female Infertility

Relative infertility is a term coined for women who can have biological kids after taking treatment for their conditions like PCOS, hostile uterus or by using assisted reproductive technologies. 

Absolute infertility usually describes a condition when a woman cannot have biological kids despite treatment or using assisted reproductive technologies like hormonal medication, IVF, and surrogacy. Generally, it happens in women whose ovaries had been removed surgically or in women having severe endometriosis.

Congenital and Acquires Infertility in Females

As the name suggests Congenital infertility is caused by hereditary and congenital pathologies. Generally, women having some endocrine disease, or genital malformations develop this type of infertility.

Acquired infertility arises in women who were fertile but due to some disease or other factors lost their fertility. This type of infertility is similar to secondary infertility. 

 

Temporary and Permanent Infertility Types

Temporary infertility causes temporary infertility. This type of infertility typically arises due to anovulatory menstrual cycles that are common during lactation. 

Permanent infertility or sterility is a condition when a woman fails to conceive because of some congenital causes like absent fallopian tubes or uterus. 

 

Physiological infertility, Pathological infertility, and Voluntarily Female Infertility

Women experience physiological infertility under certain circumstances:

  • Before menarche
  • After menopause
  • During lactation, etc.

Pathological infertility develops when a woman fails to conceive a child due to some underlying disease.

Voluntary infertility is when a woman does not want to have a child or get pregnant.

What are the different treatments for infertility in women?

Infertility treatments can be decided based on:

  • Age of the female
  • Factors contributing to the infertility
  • Duration of infertility and
  • Preference after counselling about success rates, risks, and benefits of each treatment option

Following are the treatment options for couples facing infertility issues :

 

Medications:

Medications can be given to induce egg development and normal ovulation. The medications that help to stimulate the ovary to develop mature eggs for ovulation come in two forms: pills that can be taken by mouth and injections.

 

Intrauterine Insemination:

Intrauterine insemination, also known as IUI, is a process by which sperm is washed and prepared for placement into the uterine cavity, therefore bypassing the cervix and bringing a higher concentration of motile sperm closer to the tubes and ovulated egg. 

To accomplish this, the semen is washed with a solution safe for sperm and eggs and then centrifuged to separate motile sperm from immotile sperm and other cells. Those motile and viable sperm are then placed in a very small amount of solution, and then very gently and painlessly injected into the uterine cavity using a very thin, soft, and flexible catheter. 

At least one open tube is required for IUI, and any sperm abnormality cannot be severe, otherwise, the sperm will not be able to swim to and fertilise the egg.

 

IVF treatment:

In vitro means “outside the body.” IVF is a process in which eggs are collected from the female ovaries and then fertilised by sperm outside the body, in a specialised embryology laboratory. IVF is a revolutionary treatment option as it allows successful pregnancies in women that were previously deemed permanently infertile. This procedure involves the following steps :

  • Removal of eggs directly from the ovary.
  • Fertilisation with sperm in the laboratory.
  • Transfer of the embryos directly into the uterus, bypassing the tubes.
  • Successful Conception.

 

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) treatment for infertility:

ICSI is an advanced form of IVF in which each egg is individually injected with a single sperm using a tiny needle under microscopic guidance. The resulting embryo is then cultured similarly to an embryo as produced in a non-ICSI IVF treatment.
