Myths About IVF You Should Stop Believing Right Now!

M.Sc, MD, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Myths About IVF You Should Stop Believing Right Now!

In vitro fertilization or IVF is deemed as one of the wonder treatments for couples who are facing infertility issues. Whether it is due to poor sperm quality of blocked fallopian tubes, IVF has proven to be a safe and effective solution. However, like with all new techniques, IVF also has some myths which need to be understood before signing up for the procedure. With so much at stake in terms of finances and time, understanding the process will help set realistic expectations and improve the success rate of IVF.

Myth 1: High success rate. While IVF has very high success rates, some women just fail to get pregnant. This could be about 5% of the women and may not be attributable to any particular cause. Each woman responds differently, and failure to conceive through IVF could be due to no explainable cause. What is interesting is that though the first attempt failed, subsequent attempts may be successful. Failing the first cycle does not mean failure in subsequent cycles. Also, success rate differs from clinic to clinic, and so choose one which has a proven track record and good success rates. It should not just have good doctors but also the essential technology and infrastructure to support the IVF technique.

Myth #2: IVF leads to multiple births. While achieving multiple births is easier through IVF, it always does not lead to multiple births. Multiple embryos are implanted, only to improve the chances of success. It does not necessarily translate into multiple births. In women over 38 years of age, it is mandatory to only transfer a single embryo as multiple births are very likely to be complicated.

Myth #3: Rest and time off work. It is believed that IVF has a higher success rate with proper rest and time off work. Rest is definitely required the first few days after embryo transplant but it definitely later assumes a normal course of things. It is not that too much time off work is required, just because you had an IVF. Your body might be different and require more rest, but that could have been the case even with a normal pregnancy.

Myth #4: The medications with IVF are going to have lots of side effects. While the hormones given to promote egg release do have their side effects of making you feel moody and emotional, it is only transient. Once the egg release happens, fertilization is done, and embryo transplant is done, then things should settle down. The effects should wear down once the embryo is implanted and then things should settle down. Of course, pregnancy brings its own hormonal changes, which will run their course through pregnancy.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

1.Low-fat milk is recommended. Boil milk before drinking. Drink it warm. This makes it easier to digest. Do not take milk with a full meal or with sour or salty foods. Add a pinch of turmeric or ginger to the milk before boiling it. This helps to reduce the kapha increasing qualities of the milk. 2. Lighter fruits, such as apples, oranges, grape fruit, pineapple and papaya and pears, are recommended. 3. Sweeteners: Honey is excellent for reducing kapha. Reduce the intake of sugar products, which increase kapha. 4. Beans are recommended. Nuts should be avoided. 5. Grains such as barley, chickpea and millet are recommended. Do not take too much wheat or rice, as they increase kapha. 6. Spices are recommended only in moderate quantities. 7. Vegetables such as potaotoes and sweet potatoes should be avoided as they can cause weight gain. 8. Follow a lifestyle that will not aggravate any dosha. 9. Negative feelings like stress and tension should be avoided. Do not undertake physical or mental work beyond your capacity. 10. Limit the use of contraceptives. 11. Follow an active lifestyle, yet the exercises should be according to one's capacity. Both, excessive fasting and overeating are harmful. 12. Smoking, drinking alcohol and using narcotics aggravates menstrual disorders.

Polio Vaccination - 7 Reasons Why It Is So Important!

Polio Vaccination - 7 Reasons Why It Is So Important!

Polio is a virus that has the potential to infect any parts of the body including, but not limited to nerves and muscles. Primarily there are 3 types of polio namely, non-paralytic, spinal paralytic and bulbar. This disease shows minimal to no symptoms in more than 90 percent of the cases. 5 percent of the cases can show symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, sore throat and abdominal pain. Polio is a communicable disease and can cause massive damage if a proper dosage is not taken. It can spread through air, physical contact with an infected person, coughs etc.

  1. Polio can cause paralysisPolio has a far-reaching permanent effect on the body. It can cause paralysis on any of the limbs leading to permanent disability. This severely alters a child’s life. The far-reaching consequences of the virus can only be negated through vaccination.
  2. Weak muscle: Polio can result in weak muscles, respiratory problems and loss of reflex. If the breathing muscle collapses, it can result in the death of a person. Any of the above-mentioned symptoms can lead to weak body development altering the fate of a child.
  3. It can spread fast and quick: Polio spreads very fast through the air, physical contact, saliva and water. It not only affects a single life but put millions at risk of the disease. A 1916 outbreak of the disease killed 6000 people in the United States and left several thousands of people disabled.
  4. It reduces the risk of infection3 dosages Polio vaccination under the age of 6 can save a baby from getting polio in future. The body successfully creates polio antibodies from the vaccines and gets enough ammunition to fight it if the virus attacks it in future.
  5. Social responsibility: Massive amount of awareness campaigns have been run by countries all over the world to permanently eradicate polio from the face of the earth. As per the latest reports, only 3 countries are reported to have babies affected with polio; Afghanistan, Pakistan and Congo. It is, therefore, a social responsibility to take part in the mission of removing polio from the face of the earth once and for all.
  6. Save future generation: Although polio is not known to be a disease which passes through heredity, there still lies a chance for the future generation to get this disease. In order to negate that from happening, it makes sense to get the vaccines on time.
  7. Give your kid a head start: Every kid deserves to have an equal amount of privileges like others. One small mistake on part of the parents can heavily cost a child’s future. In order to make sure your kids grow up with any apprehension of polio, it is very important to treat them with polio vaccines.

Take cabgolin as advised by your doctor to lower your prolactin levels. Once it is in normal range and there are no other factors affecting your wife's fertility, she will conceive without any problem.

Alcohol is a source of empty calories. (100 Kcal/30 ml). Along with alcohol, one consumes lots of junk foods as well. Beer is consumed in high amounts. So ultimately total calorie consumption at one meal is very high. Since the body cannot utilise this, remaining is converted to fats. Men, due to their body composition, have lower tendency to store fat in arms/legs/ thighs/hips. Most of the fat is stored in their belly & blood vessels thus increasing the risk of diabetes mellitus type 2, heart disease & hypertension. Also, alcohol causes liver damage leading to cirrhosis & death. Alcohol also causes malnutrition. Smoking also increases susceptibility to heart disease, hypertension & stroke. He might be already suffering from these problems. I strongly recommend liver function test, lipid profile, blood glucose (fasting, PP), BP, ECG. Diet & lifestyle modification, regular physical exercise needs to be started immediately. He needs to stop taking beer & cigarettes. Red wine (1 -2 glass max at a time) & NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) are better options to replace beer & cigarettes.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Am 31 weeks pregnant. I have gestation diabetes. Pls tel me proper and healthy diet plan.
Here's a sample vegetarian meal plan if you have gestational diabetes. However, a customised diet plan works best. This is because it is based on your weight, height, activity levels, stage of pregnancy and your glucose levels. You can try different variations of this sample meal plan to keep your taste buds happy. Early Morning (between 6 AM – 7 AM) A glass of milk (250 ml approx.) without sugar with 20gm roasted gram Breakfast (between 8 AM – 9 AM) A cup of milk (approx. 150 ml) without sugar and two whole wheat bread slices with 50gm cottage cheese (paneer) or one boiled egg / two vegetable stuffed chapattis with a bowl of curd / two small dosas or four idlis with sambhar. Use only 1 tsp of oil for cooking. Mid Morning (11 AM) One medium-sized fruit (150 gm approx.) such as guava, pear, plum, apple, sweet lime (musambi), peach or jamun. Lunch (between 1 PM to 1:30 PM) Start with one quarter plate of salad (cucumber, tomato, carrot, radish), one or two bowls of seasonal vegetable, one bowl of dal, about 150 ml (1 cup) curd, three chapattis / two chapattis and 3 tablespoons of rice. Use about 2 tsp of oil when cooking the lunch. Evening (4 PM) A cup of milk without sugar or lassi Evening Snack (6 PM) A bowl of sprouts with vegetable juice or soup. Dinner (8 PM – 8:30 PM) Similar to lunch. But you can try different dishes to add variety to your meals. For example, you can take cottage cheese with peas (matar paneer), mixed vegetable, soya nuggets curry, whole moong dal, masoor daal, or black chick pea gravy, green beans and carrots and so on. Use about 2 tsp of oil for cooking dinner. Bed Time 1 glass milk (250 ml approx.)/ 1 cup milk (150 ml approx.) with one small sized fruit (150 gm approx.)
