1What is infertility?

Infertility is a medical condition in which a couple, inspite of having well timed and unprotected intercourse could not carry a pregnancy that leads to a live birth. The reasons behind this medical condition can be evaluated only through in-depth diagnosis.

2Is infertility only a woman’s problem?

No, it is not a woman’s problem alone. While offering initial consultations during the infertility treatment in Pune at our hospital, we often emphasize the fact to the couple that 40% infertility cases is due to each man and woman and the rest 20% is due to common or unexplained problems.

3How long should a couple wait before approaching an infertility treatment medical centre?

Couples need to visit an infertility treatment centre only if pregnancy does not occur within one year of unprotected sex. That being said, 30+ aged women with pelvic inflammation, irregular menstrual cycles, painful periods or repeated miscarriages and men with low sperm count or retrograde ejaculation may need to visit our IVF fertility clinic in Pune, so that diagnostic tests can be started.

4What are the tests conducted for infertility?

As a part of in-depth analysis of your reproductive system, following tests would be conducted as applicable:

  • Blood tests to check the levels of hormone, androgen, thyroid and prolactin
  • Semen analysis of male partner
  • Hysterosalpingogram to check the status of fallopian tubes
  • Endometrial biopsy
  • Laproscopy
5How is infertility treated?

Medical world now offers plenty of options for couple to treat infertility and attain parenthood. Right from conventional techniques such as hormonal treatments, ovulation induction, and IUI to more sophisticated treatments such as IVF, ICSI,surrogacy, egg, sperm, and embryo donation, many avenues are open for treatment. We at SaiShree Infertility Hospital, the renowned test tube baby centre in Pune, begin with conventional ones and move forward to the advanced techniques only if the situation demands.

6What is the difference between IUI and IVF?

The basic difference between IUI and IVF can be attributed to the location of fertilization. In IUI, the treated and washed male partner’s or donor’s sperm is injected into the women during ovulation. Whereas in IVF the fertilization is conducted outside the body in a controlled environment and after five days of fertilization, the embryo is transferred to female partner’s uterus. Our specialist doctors associated with IUI treatment in Pune offer IUI for patients with unexplained infertility, male with sperm issues and female with cervical mucus medical conditions. As IVF is a more advanced procedure, it is attempted only in the event of repeated failures of IUI.
