Daljindar Kaur's inspiring story of motherhood: How IVF became her savior

Daljindar Kaur's inspiring story of motherhood: How IVF became her savior

The success of In vitro fertilization continues in India as a septuagenarian woman gives birth to a baby boy. Even after 46 years of marriage, the couple from Amritsar was childless. Daljinder Kaur, along with her 79-year-old husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, had been visiting National fertility and the Test Tube Baby Centre in Hisar since 2013 and did not give up even after two failed IVF cycles. They had faced ridicule for their inability to have a baby and yet they kept their hopes up.
On the 19th of April, the couple was blessed with a baby boy who is nothing less than a miracle. The groundbreaking achievement of the embryologists from Hisar has been an inspiration and a beacon of hope for couples all across the country. Once again, IVF has proved to be one of the most successful procedures to have babies for couples with fertility issues. Following are some of the advantages of In vitro fertilization, which you should know about-


1. It can be used by anybody - In-vitro fertilization is not necessarily used by the going to be a mother. It can be used by gestational carriers or by a surrogate as well. So it depends on whether the parents want to take the help of a surrogate or themselves want to be involved in the pregnancy. IVF gives an opportunity to single women and same-sex couples to become parents.
2. Use of donated eggs and sperms - There might be circumstances when the doctor can recommend using donated sperms or eggs. In that case, the eggs can be fertilized manually in the lab and the fetus developed can be used for in vitro fertilization. This increases the chance of pregnancy by a fair amount.
3. Control over timing - In vitro fertilization is a solution for couples who have a very engaging professional life, and can be an option for people who want to have babies after a certain point of time. Eggs and embryos can be preserved for future use. It is also helpful for couples who already have a child and plan to have another later.
4. Decreases chances of miscarriage - Genetic abnormality is one of the primary causes of miscarriage. The technique of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is used to ensure the viability of the embryo much ahead of time so that the mother can have an uncomplicated pregnancy and carry her baby full term.

If your wife was perceiving good fetal movements before 2 days and now, she cannot feel any movements, you should immediately go to a doctor and get fetal heart sounds checked. Hurry up.

Once ovulation happens egg will stay alive in your tract for 24 hours and the sperm once ejaculated inside your tract will be alive for 24 hours.Hence during ovulation alternate day if you have intercourse it is enough.

Irregular periods usually signal an ovulation disorder ie abnormality in egg formation hence is most probably a contributing factor in difficulty in conception. You need to undergo hormonal blood tests and Ultrasound to determine the cause and management accordingly

As you are postmenopausal, there is excessive hormone build up in your body which is responsible for the hair growth or hirsutism. Electrolysis and laser hair removal are best options, but expensive and may require multiple settings. Electrolysis uses an electric current applied to each hair follicle to destroy its root. Laser hair removal involves shooting a laser beam at each hair follicle to destroy its root. Shaving, bleaching, plucking, waxing, and using depilatories (creams that dissolve hair) are some of the more common ways of removing or hiding unwanted hair.

Fibroid Tumours: All You Should Know

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Fibroid Tumours: All You Should Know

A fibroid tumour is made up of muscle cells that have escaped and come together to create a knot or a mass in the uterus. These tumours can occur due to a family history and are usually known to occur for women patients nearing menopause. One of the most common symptoms is unusually heavy menstrual cycles. Let us walk you through the rest of the details.

  • Types: Fibroid tumours can be of three types, mainly depending on the location. While submucosal fibroids can be found just under the lining of the uterus, intramural fibroids can be found between the muscles that lie on the walls of the uterus. Finally, the third type - subserol fibroids - go beyond the uterine wall to enter the pelvic cavity. 
  • Symptoms: Usually, there are no symptoms of these kinds of fibroids. There may be heavy bleeding during the monthly menstrual cycle, as well as swelling and pain in the abdomen. Also, prolonged bleeding is common when these kinds of tumours are present in the body. 
  • Cause: Fibroid tumours are mostly caused due to an overgrowth of the cells beyond the muscular walls that line the uterus. In such cases, the growth is further fuelled by hormones like estrogen and progesterone. These hormones are usually at their highest level in the body, during the childbearing years of a woman. During menopause, these tumours are known to shrink before they eventually vanish. It is very rare to find malignancy in such tumours. 
  • Risk: Are you at risk? Well, that depends on your age, family medical history, weight and in some cases, even the ethnicity. These tumours are mostly found in women who are between the age of 30 to 40 years and continues through menopause. Obesity is also a major reason that gives rise to this condition. Further, women of colour are known to develop this more easily while a family history can also increase your chances of the same.
  • Tests and Diagnosis: A pelvic exam and an ultrasound as well as a history of your menstrual cycle will help the doctor in determining whether or not you are suffering from this condition.
  • Treatment: Non steroid, anti-inflammatory drugs can help in bringing down the swelling and pain, especially in cases where there is heavy menstrual bleeding. Birth control pills and patches with hormones can also help in such cases. Further, progesterone shots and iron supplements may be prescribed. Very severe cases may require surgery for removal with a myomectomy.

Remember to visit your doctor in case you see any nagging symptoms of fibroid tumours.

We are married couple (32 age Male, 29 age Female). We have been trying to conceive for last 4 months. We need to use lubrication (Vaseline) during the sex. What are some of pregnancy friendly lubricant that I can buy in local stores.

If you need to use vaseline during sex, and you are trying to conceive, then be aware that vaseline is spermicidal and hence acts as a obstacle to conceive. Most lubricants are spermicidal and hence the nest would be to try and get as much natural lubrication as is possible. Before penetration, during foreplay please get famililiar with the private parts of the female. At the topmost part of the external vulva, is a fold of skin between which is enclosed a small bead like organ called clitoris. If the clitoris is massaged it will result in engorgement of the erectile tissue in the female and hence in preparation good lubrication will be thrown by the accessory glands. This will solve most of the problems as natural lubricant is very sperm friendly. During sex if you have routine man on top position it prevents the clitoris from being stimulated. Lubrication is a sign of arousal. If the woman is aroused her vagina gets lubricated, in preparation for the coitus naturally by the secretions of the accessory sex glands I would suggest you bring your partner at the edge of the bed, ask her to hold her legs apart and you can stand by the bed, between the legs and enter the vagina this way. In this position the visual stimulus to your erection and also your hands are free to stimulate the clitoris to get her aroused and hence more lubricated.

This is atisaar and proper medicines of herbominerals origin should be taken to flare up digestive enzymes and anti infectives to stop any accumulating mucus. Just stopping lose motions is not the full remedy but deepan, paachan, shodhan medicines may be taken for complete cure. For the time being pl take bael pulp powder with pomegranates juice or warm water. You may opt our aamnashak combo for maintaining proper defaecation and correcting digestion.
