Fertility Care – A Ray Of Light For Hopeful Parents

Getting pregnant is often not straightforward. Couples at the prime of their fertility have a 20% chance of getting pregnant each month. This puts a lot of strain on the process, which may change it from a pleasurable and hopeful event to one filled with worry and shame or blame.

IVF treatment is becoming increasingly popular. This is because it has benefited people who were previously unable to conceive. The ultimate goal of IVF is to have a healthy baby through a successful pregnancy. 

If you are looking for alternate options and need expert advice and assistance with having a baby, do get in touch with Dr. Nisarg Patel, one of the founders of Nisha IVF Centre, a state-of-the-art infertility clinic in Ahmedabad. Dr. Nisarg Patel is a proficient IVF doctor who is genuinely dedicated and compassionate in serving his patients with infertility issues.

What causes infertility?

Gone are the days when the entire responsibility was placed on the woman for failing to conceive. With the advancement in technology, knowledge, and awareness of our bodies, we have come to understand and accept that men can also have fertility issues.

The following factors raise the chances of infertility in both men and women:

  • Age (above 35 for women and above 40 for men) 
  • Eating disorders like bulimia, anorexia nervosa, etc 
  • Diabetes 
  • Abuse of drugs and alcohol 
  • Smoking 
  • Exposure to toxins like pesticides and lead 
  • Cancer treatments, such as radiation therapy 
  • Excessive and strenuous exercising 
  • Stress 
  • Unhealthy weight (being obese or underweight)

Some common causes of infertility in women include: 

  • Hormonal issues that prevent ovulation 
  • Abnormal or irregular menstrual cycle 
  • Problems with the uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries

What is fertility care?

Fertility care includes prevention of infertility, its diagnosis, and treatment. A fertility clinic is a medical facility that helps couples and individuals who wish to start a family but have been unable to do so naturally due to medical issues or infertility. Infertility is when you cannot conceive (get pregnant) after a year or longer of having unprotected intercourse.

Fertility treatments can help women become pregnant in a variety of ways. Many women require specialized medical care to conceive. To achieve pregnancies, clinics use a variety of diagnostic tests and, in some cases, quite advanced medical procedures.

Please speak with Dr. Nisarg Patel, a highly-skilled IVF doctor in Ahmedabad, to determine which fertility treatment is best suited for you.

Diagnosis

Fertility clinics examine both males and females to diagnose fertility issues. Studies show that failure to conceive is due to infertility in males 35% of the time, females 35% of the time, both male and female 20% of the time, and unknown causes 10% of the time.  

The standard screening test for males is semen analysis to determine problems with semen quality. Females may be subjected to various tests, including ovulation analysis, fallopian tube, uterine x-rays, and laparoscopy. Doctors may also use ultrasounds and advanced pregnancy tests.

Treatment

The treatment options include ovulation inducement, surgical techniques, artificial insemination, such as IUI (intrauterine insemination), IVF (in vitro fertilization), or the use of an egg or sperm donor.

Dr. Nisarg Patel, an exceptionally qualified IVF specialist, says the most well-known assisted reproductive technique performed at Nisha IVF hospital in Ahmedabad is the IVF. 

What is the IVF procedure?

IVF is a medical procedure in which the egg is fertilized by sperm outside the woman’s body.

The IVF procedure consists of:

Ovarian stimulation

Hormone injections will be administered to you to promote good egg growth. IVF allows women to create more eggs in a month than otherwise.

“Women usually produce one egg in a standard ovulatory month,” Dr. Nisarg Patel adds. “Our goal with IVF is to get 10 or 15 eggs.”

Egg harvesting

The eggs are extracted trans-vaginally from your ovaries by a simple procedure while you are anesthetized.

A tiny needle guide is used to slide a needle across vaginally under transvaginal ultrasonography to drain fluids from the follicles.

The male sperm is obtained on the same day.

Fertilization

The egg and sperm are joined in a lab using various fertilization techniques, including ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection).

Embryo culture

The embryologists observe the embryos as they split from 2 cells to 4 and then 8 cells. This process typically takes 3 – 6 days until the blastocyst stage (the fertilized egg).

Embryo transfer

The woman’s uterus is monitored with ultrasound during the embryo transfer, and a tiny catheter is inserted through the cervix in the uterine area. After that, the embryo or embryos are implanted in your uterus. The doctor does a pregnancy test after 12 – 15 days of embryo transfer.

Conclusion

A compelling motivation for couples to conceive is the joy of bringing their child into the world and watching that person grow up in a loving and secure home. For many couples struggling with infertility or for whom natural conception and pregnancy are not a possibility, IVF is the best and perhaps the most successful alternative.

It is time to make informed, wise, and healthy decisions that reflect your hopes rather than your worries. If you are struggling with getting pregnant, Nisha IVF Hospital is the end of your quest.
