In one sided uterus if it is normal then pregnancy can happen. If tubes are blocked then Ivf is the method of choice.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of IVF!

Advantages And Disadvantages Of IVF!

IVF, as we all know is an assisted reproductive technology. This is a process of fertilization by extracting eggs, retrieve a sperm sample and then manually get an egg and sperm to combine in a laboratory dish. The embryo then gets transferred to the uterus.

Now before going deep into the advantages and disadvantages of IVF, let’s take a look the kind of patients, on whom IVF can be used to treat the problem of infertility:

  • Women who have damaged or blocked fallopian tubes. Fallopian tubes refer to the pair of tubes through which eggs pass through to the uterus from the ovaries.

  • Males, who are suffering from infertility due to decreased sperm count.

  • Any individual who has genetic disorder.

IVF helps many patients to conceive, who would otherwise be unable to have children following the conventional path. Achieving a successful pregnancy along with the delivery of a healthy baby is the ultimate objective of In Vitro Fertilization. Some other advantages are discussed below as follows:

  • Have A Child Using Their Own Eggs : IVF allows Women, who have their fallopian tubes blocked or damaged, with the best alternative to conceive child artificially through the usage of their own eggs.

  • Patients With A Low Ovarian Reserve : IVF helps to maximize the chance of conceiving among older patients. Generally some fertility clinics use Natural IVF as it’s main focus is more on the quality of eggs, rather than quantity.

  • Help Males Get Rid Of Their Infertility : Males with infertility problems, as a result of low sperm count, will have much higher chance of conceiving through IVF.

  • Assist Women Who Have Had Premature Ovarian Failure : Premature Ovarian Failure or Menopause among women can go through IVF treatment using donor eggs, which has been known to have high success rates.

  • Safe Track Record : It was in the year 1978, when the first ‘IVF baby’, Lousie Brown was born using Natural IVF. It’s been 40 years since then and the technology has advanced with refined techniques, which has helped create safer, successful treatments.

There are certain disadvantages with this form of infertility treatment as well. Some of them are discussed below:

  • Side Effects and Risks Associated With IVF : In Vitro Fertilization treatment is not without certain risks and side effects, the most severe one being Ovarian Hyper-Stimulation Syndrome.

  • Women Can Have A Slightly Higher Chance Of Ectopic Pregnancy : For women having damaged fallopian tubes, IVF treatment can lead to the risk of ectopic pregnancy. In this type of pregnancy, the fertilized egg gets attached in a place other than inside the uterus.

  • IVF Is Not Always A Success : One cycle of IVF may not bring success, hence patients well need to go through multiple cycles before being treated completely.

So, one can get a fair idea about the benefits and drawbacks of IVF treatment, which would ultimately help patients to take decisions accordingly.

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

Some families restrict for 40 days but scientifically no relation exists between delivery and these eatables. Eat a well balanced diet which is not too spicy.

These blood tests must be done on second day of menstrual cycle. When done later, the results are not correct as hormonal levels keep changing according to the day of the cycle. As you miscarried in march, there must have been a period of 3 to 6 months in which you would have been advised not to conceive. This means you have been trying for pregnancy since 4 to 6 months only. If you conceived earlier without difficulty and your periods or regular, you should be able to conceive again easily. Please take folic acid tablets 5 mg once daily at this time and meet a gynaecologist if you still have difficulty in conceiving.

Hi sir Please tell me in how many days I can check that I'm pregnant from the date of sex.
Thank you.
Hello, the chance of a pregnancy per menstrual cycle is about 20-30 % so in case you miss your periods do a pregnancy test the next day.

I'm 22 years old female. And yesterday night suddenly I noticed that my nipples got harder and erected. And now after nearly 14 hours I'm observing little pain in that area. What could be the reason?

A warm shower or heating pad can also help alleviate the discomforts of sore nipple

How Do Drugs/Alcohol Hijack Our Kids?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

How Do Drugs/Alcohol Hijack Our Kids?

The most commonly encountered two facts about the drug or alcohol use by our addicted kids are drugs/ alcohol are something which they really like those are something which they find really hard to give up. They know that the drug can kill them in a long run, but still they go with the immediate rewards by consuming the drug. The whole addiction thing is about being in the moment and choosing what your brain craves for right now at the expense of other rewards and possibilities. So what we observe is that drug hijacks a person's rational thinking for the long term consequences.


Addiction has to do with changes in the brain that come about gradually, become more and more central, more and more powerful as the time passes by. The drug use becomes the axis of the person, around which the other activities in life takes turn. It takes on the central meaning and role in the person's life in such a way that the most irrational idea about taking the drug or alcohol may seem to the person the most rational in that particular situation, as the drug compromises the person's clear thinking. So yes an addict can make choices for his drug cravings but the way they make choices is the thing we must think about. In an addict the brain does what it needs to do, but in a very non-adaptive way. In simple words addiction hijacks the very parts of the brain that are supposed to fix it.


Craving is the fundamental psychological experience of an addict because of which addiction occurs. Dopamine serves as the fuel for craving and is the common pathway for all kinds of addictions. Natural goodies like the food and sex certainly release dopamine in brain and follow the progression from liking to wanting i. E. Wanting more of those. As per studies, among the natural rewards sex can provide a person with the maximum natural high of upto 200% dopamine levels in brain. But the drugs cause a higher than 200% dopamine levels, which thus is the magic mark for addictive processes to occur. Also with repeated drug use there are changes in the arrangement of the inner landscape of synaptic architecture in brain, such that the thoughts, the images, the memories about the drug use behavior takes over many parts of the cortex of brain and thus the person see the drug cues wherever he gets a dopamine rush, be it with sex or food or social gatherings. Thus dopamine drives the person with a feeling of craving for the drug. Also with repeated dopamine increments of higher than natural amounts, there is maladaptive learning in brain in form of the shrinkage of dopamine cells, decrease in dopamine receptors and depletion of the dopamine stores. Thus the real natural goodies like sex or food are than not able to give a dopamine high and the only way left is to have more drugs. The person becomes impulsive and compulsive in his drug taking behavior. Repetition compulsion feedback loop keeps the person going after the drug use, narrowing the sense of meaningful world for the person. This causes a vicious cycle of incremental drug intake and thus addiction. Dopamine pathways are subdued by chronic drug use and thus the drug addicts are never able to keep up with their promises of staying away from the drug.


But then our brains have enormous reparative capacity and so a lot of the things that drugs do to damage the brain are probably reversible. One of the things that last the longest are the memories associated with drug use and the learning/ operant conditioning that occurs with it. The acute memory of brain over stimulation with drug is captured in amygdale which designates an important part of the instinctual brain i. E. The brain part which can't be controlled. So if a drug related cue is presented to a recovering addict, all that they can remember is the greatest high which they ever had with the drug. Thus the person remains preoccupied and thinks about the drug even when not using it. When this occurs, it is for the lifetime and we can't undo it. Their amygdale are going to light up seeing the drug cues for rest of their lives. This is why we say recovery from drug is a lifelong experience. Studies show a much faster depletion of our brain neurotransmitters by drug use (less than 12 months), than their replenishment in recovery from addiction (5 to 7 years). Thus during recovery an ongoing treatment for the imbalanced brain neurotransmitters and the visible symptoms due to the same is always essential.
