Hi! 

I am Dr. Shalini Yadav, consultant obs and gynae fertility specialist. I will be talking about a very simple and common question, Why IVF? Is IVF for all and how it works? What is the success rate in actual? How a lady gets ovulated and gets pregnant naturally? In the natural cycle and in an average female who has a menstrual cycle of 28 days, there is the production of the hormone from the brain which also causes the follicular production. As follicular grows, they do produce a hormone which is an estrogen. One follicle dominates and starts producing estrogen. Now sperm travels from your vagina and meets the egg released from the tube. There fertilisation occurs.

And embryo travels all the way to uterine and that is how the implantation occurs. If the lady is pregnant, she does not get cycle otherwise on 14th day, she will get her menstrual cycle. So, the patient asks that IVF is for all? My answer is No. IVF is for those who have undergone any tubal surgeries or any related problems. It depends on pathology and morphology of the sperm. Sperm count also matters for the same. Because it can make difficult for you to conceive. So, IVF is not for all. So, only 5% of couple require this treatment. Doctor needs to check whether the problem is, in female or male. If the problem is with male, then IVF is required. In female, there are 2 major causes - 1st is tubal pathology like you may have tubal blockage, infection in the tubes, tuberculosis or any previous surgery in the tubes.

We encounter lots of patient with premature ovarian failure. Now how IVF works and what is the success rate? The success rate does not depend on the doctor or the centre. It is all about the couple success rate. In IVF, we stimulate the ovary but it is a controlled ovarian stimulation. Under anesthesia, we take out all the eggs under ultrasound guidance. Then we fertlise them with sperm. Or we do ICSI. Where one sperm is injected in one egg. If the lady has 10 eggs, she might not have 10 embryos. We check fertilisation on the gap of 48-72 hours. So, the success depends that in how much of the good amount a couple will make the embryos. And in IVF, the success rate is not more than 40-60%. So, a couple should understand that they are dealing with their own eggs and sperm. If there is the uterine abnormality then we go for surrogacy. Or if the eggs are really poor then we only go for the donor cycle. But we prefer natural IVF cycle. We are getting lots of success rate. We just discuss with the patient, if there is any such problem.

Thank You.

Low Sperm Count In Men - What Can Possibly Cause It?

Low Sperm Count In Men - What Can Possibly Cause It?

The process of sperm production is a complex one as it involves not only the perfect functioning of the testicles or testes but also the pituitary glands and the hypothalamus which is located in the brain that triggers the sperm production by producing necessary hormones. Any damage or malfunctioning of any of these organs can significantly reduce the amount of sperm produced by a male body. In India, it is a taboo to talk about male infertility, but in reality, male infertility is on the rise in India due to low sperm production.

Causes of Low Sperm Production
Several causes can be cited for low sperm production. A few prevalent ones are indicated below:

  1. Varicocele which is a condition in which the veins through which the sperm is drained from the testicles get swollen, and thus the quantity and the quality of the sperm get affected.
  2. Any infection in the epididymis or the testicles can affect the production of the sperm. There can be some permanent damage to the testicles which causes the sperm production to decrease.
  3. Due to an Auto immune disease where anti bodies mistakenly destroy the sperms in your own body thereby reducing sperm quantity.
  4. Hormonal imbalance is a common factor in male as well though it is neglected in India. The pituitary gland might not produce the hormone in the required quantity which is needed for the right amount of sperm production.
  5. Medication that you are using can interfere with the production of the sperm in your body as certain chemicals can alter the hormonal balance in your body thus affecting the sperm quantity.
  6. Rarely, a defect in chromosomes can reduce male sperm production. Known as Klinefelter’s syndrome, the male body has 2 X chromosomes instead of 1 X and 1 Y chromosome which causes abnormality in reproductive men and the organs.

Common Symptoms-
The primary symptom of low sperm count is the inability to have an offspring, but there are many other symptoms as well. It has been observed that a male with low sperm count has a little or diminishing sex drive. They might not hold an erection for long or have erectile dysfunction. There can be swelling or pain in the testicles, and you may even have a lump which is a severe case. Due to hormonal disorder, there can be a decrease in the body or facial hairs.

If you have been observing a few of the symptoms mentioned above, it is better to see a doctor on the quick note. Doctors can ask for a semen test to understand the underlying problem. There are surgical as well as medical procedures to increase the sperm count and have a better sexual life.

Premenstrual Syndrome - Best Ways One Can Deal With It!

Premenstrual Syndrome - Best Ways One Can Deal With It!

Oh, it is that time of the month again! There are a lot of women (and men who deal with the women) who would have repeatedly said this when they are experiencing the premenstrual syndrome. Most women (and men!) get used to it and know how to deal with it. As the adage goes, this too shall pass!

The female body and mind are controlled by a whole lot of female hormones which affect her health. During the premenstrual phase, when there is a surge in the hormone levels, there are a set of symptoms which any woman dreads. These include increased mood swings, irritability, abdominal cramps, migraines, breast tenderness, food binging, and back pain to name a few. About 80% of the woman experience these, so it is common, yet easily manageable. Some of the best ways to deal with the PMS are listed below.

  1. Stay active: Moving in any way to keep the body in motion and energy flowing is the key to managing PMS. Whether aerobic exercise, dancing, jogging, swimming, or walking, whatever works for you, go ahead and take your pick. Getting at least 30 minutes of physical activity can help get rid of the anxiety and manage stress.
  2. Deep breathing: This is not just a way to give your body more oxygen and therefore energy, it also helps manage the abdominal bloating that is commonly seen during PMS. Deep breaths help in releasing the held up air, which causes the belly to soften.
  3. Quit smoking: Smoking women are twice as likely to experience PMS symptoms as nonsmokers. Period. Reason enough to quit smoking??!!
  4. Soak in the sun: The sun not just gives vitamin D, it also relieves PMS by soothing the effect of the hormones.
  5. Get creative: The reproductive organs are the ‘creators’ in you, so when the hormone levels are higher, your creative energies are higher too. Check out for yourself and you will find that you will be extra-good at drawing, singing, writing and painting during these days. They also take your mind off the stress and symptoms of PMS and make you feel good.
  6. Yoga: Yoga does wonders for PMS symptoms, and staying upside down works wonders for the woman’s body.
  7. Healthy diet: Eat clean, green foods during your cycles. Whole grains, leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes and nuts should find their way into your plates. Reduce the whites – sugar, salt, white rice, and even dairy if possible. Drink loads of water and keep above-average hydration levels.
  8. Limit alcohol and caffeine: They may boost your feeling temporarily, but do a lot of harm, so avoid them.

So, while PMS is not rare, there are simple effective ways to manage it too.

In Vitro Fertilization - An Overview!

In Vitro Fertilization - An Overview!

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a very common treatment for infertility. This process of fertilization involves, extracting eggs, retrieve a sperm sample and then get the egg and sperm combined manually in a laboratory dish. The embryo then gets transferred to the uterus. It is an artificial way to conceive and applicable for couples who cannot have children conventionally.

Problems Which Lead To In Vitro Fertilization

Now we will have a look at the problems which ultimately force couples to go for IVF and conceive children through artificial procedures:

Infertility Issues in Female: Generally for women, they produce the egg and then it’s about moving it to the uterus where the sperm can fertilize it. When everything goes well, the fertilized egg goes on to become an embryo and then it gets implanted on the wall of the uterus and grows accordingly. Any deviation from this normal process can lead to infertility.

One of the most common causes of infertility among females is Endometriosis. Endometriosis causes scar tissue which results in the blockage of fallopian tubes. In some other cases, there may not be any blockage in the fallopian tubes but there might be difficulty in moving the egg along to the uterus where the fertilization can take place. In such a situation, IVF helps to the get the eggs extracted directly from the ovaries, fertilize them in the lab, hence avoid the problems of the fallopian tubes.

Problems With Ovulation Can Be Another Cause Of Infertility: Ovulation problems generally occur for women who are aged 35 years or over and can have issues in producing good quality eggs. This is where IVF can come into play. It can get the woman’s ovaries stimulated by fertility drugs, help produce a number of eggs and then allow them to be fertilized in the laboratory. In Vitro Fertilization helps in giving greater control, when there is a possibility of multiple births, rather than using only the fertility drugs. IVF makes sure to use donor eggs from a donor younger woman, which in turn largely improves the possibility of a woman, who is 40 years old or more than that, to get pregnant.

Infertility Issues Among Males: For males, it is about producing healthy sperm and get them inside a woman’s uterus, so that there is a chance of an egg fertilization. Now, infertility problems arise, if anything goes wrong with this particular process. One of the main problems could be, low sperm count, which fails to penetrate the egg, while other issues could be, sperm is unable to survive in the uterus’s mucus, problem with intercourse, tube blockage. Males can get rid of these problems through IVF treatment, where the sperm could get extracted from the testicles, avoiding the blockages and hence used for fertilization of eggs in the lab.

So, this segment has talked of what IVF is all about and what kind of problems among males and females could lead to IVF treatment.

IVF - Suggestions To Combat Emotional Upheavals!

IVF - Suggestions To Combat Emotional Upheavals!

A couple endures a lot when planning for a pregnancy. Years of planning can make the bond between the partners strong, but it shakes their hope and confidence. IVF is a boon for couples who had to put up with infertility for years. But the emotional upheavals are not easy to handle. The emotional stress and anxiety can have a negative impact on the IVF treatment. Sadly, while many couples are aware of this, they cannot come out of it easily.

  1. Choose the right people: People are nosy, especially when a woman is not getting pregnant for long. This can certainly irk any woman. If social pressure has already ensured and your confidence levels are low, you will stay aloof. Initially, you would be happy to stay off from unwanted people but this is not going to work for long. After some time, you would be dwelling in your own state of mind, and this just adds to the anxiety. The best option is to mingle with the right set of people. Find your well-wishers and stop isolating yourself. You can also join the support groups and spend quality time with empathetic people.
  2. Stop worrying and start living: Concentrate on the day, and do not worry about the future. Live in day-tight compartments. Thinking too much can make one emotionally fragile, and eventually end up in imaginary fears. Create a tight schedule for you, and follow it religiously. You cannot afford to let your mind stay free for more than 30 minutes. Yes, keep yourself occupied.
  3. Equip yourself updated with info: This is one area where you can explore. There are women who conceived naturally even after 40 years of age. A few women had failed multiple pregnancies through IVF but succeeded by being strong. Find the expert in this genre. Zero down the best clinic and the doctor. You will be able to find a successful doctor. You also get to know the best questions to ask your doctor.
  4. Maintaining equilibrium: If you are successful in maintaining composure, it means that your journey half successful already. Work with your partner about the treatment plan, and workout on the financial part of the IVF treatment. This helps you to turn a deaf ear to the insensitive questions. It is not only the external trigger that can create an emotional disturbance. You can try various stress-busting techniques. It need not be yoga, exercise always. Spend quality time with spouse, friends, or even watch your favorite play. Spend hours on the beach, or take a break from work, and immerse yourself in enjoyment.
  5. Speak to your doctor: At times, emotional upheaval can be because of the drugs you take, or hormonal imbalances. So, the doctor will help you out here, and nothing else can. Trust your doctor, and understand the IVF treatment process. It is safe and successful most of the times.

Only when you are off from the emotional disturbances, you will be able to find the solution. Infertility can affect the quality of your life. But, it is a part and parcel of your life. Do not let it ruin your life. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I suggest to undergo hysterolaparoscopy to find cause of blockage and open if ppssi le and give you chances for natural conception. But if in laparoscopy we see that the tubes are damaged and it is not possible for us to open them then treatment plan can be made.

The Advantages And Disadvantages Of IVF!

The 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
