According to fertility facts, 80 million people are suffering from infertility issues, which means every 1 in 10 people is infertile. Both men and women are equally affected by infertility.
There are medical treatments to help infertility issues but IVF doctors in Pune suggest IVF treatment as a highly suitable treatment that shows promising results even in severe infertility cases.
What Is Infertility And What Causes It?
Infertility is an umbrella term for any reproductive disorder that prevents pregnancy despite having carefully timed sex for over a year. Females at the time of their birth are born with about a million eggs in their ovaries, and the number of viable eggs for pregnancy( both in quantity and quality) decreases as they age. Though the male sperm count may not decrease with age, the quality and strength of the sperms to fertilize an egg does go down.
This explains why these issues are more common in older adults. However, there is a myriad of factors that can lead to such problems, some of which include:
● Ovulation disorders
● Cervical Abnormalities
● Fallopian tube blockage
● Early menopause
● Pelvic inflammation or adhesion
● Cancer and its Treatment
Abnormal sperm production
● Problems with delivery of sperm
● Overexposure to some environmental factors
● Damage due to cancer
The diagnosis of infertility can be expensive, and some recommended procedures can be uncomfortable. Before getting into infertility diagnosis and treatment procedures, it is advisable to prepare yourself mentally, physically, and financially. The diagnosis includes:
● Hormonal Tests
● Ovulation test
● Ovarian reserve testing
● Imaging tests
● Semen Analysis
● Hormone Testing
● Genetic Testing
● Testicular Biopsy
● Other specialty tests
What Are Some Common Infertility Treatments?
Fertility solutions include tailored treatment by doctors after diagnosis. If the doctor sees chances of conceiving naturally without trying out ART methods, the doctor will prescribe and ask to try another year (calculating the risk of fertility decline). If the medicines do not work, the doctor can advise other treatments, such as:
Certain types of surgical procedures may help regain fertility. The procedures are:
● Fallopian tube surgery: This surgery is done to treat blocked fallopian tubes.
● Endometriosis, fibroids, and PCOS Surgery: Endometriosis is a condition when the part of the uterus lining grows outside the uterus. Laparoscopic surgery is used to treat this condition.
●In Vitro Fertilization
IVF is a series of procedures that helps in fertilization outside the body. The process involves stimulating a woman’s ovulation process, retracting eggs from ovaries, and fertilizing with sperms in-vitro. The process is monitored and incubated in a lab, after which the embryo is implanted in the woman’s uterus.
