I've had a great experience with Dr. Shweta Goswami. Due to various gynaecological problems l couldn't conceive even after various treatments hence opted for surrogacy and visited her at Bournhall Clinic.

If you have been trying to get pregnant for years without success, then maybe it is time to take help from technology. The IVF technology is a process where the sperm and eggs are fused outside the human body and then inserted into the uterus. Many times, it all about getting the right start and if this process can be accomplished manually by technicians to help you get pregnant, then you should pursue this option aggressively. The process of IVF itself is not complicated but the factors surrounding the problem or issue with the couple can complicate things and therefore the results vary for different people.
The four stages of the process:
- Ovulation Induction: Ovulation induction is a procedure that uses medication to increase the number of eggs ovulated per cycle, which may improve the chances of pregnancy. Every patient taking these medications will be monitored closely (during the clinic’s cycle monitoring hours) over a 2 – 3 week period of time, via ultrasounds and blood tests, to determine their response to the treatment.
This will increase the chances of getting pregnant.
- Egg Retrieval: This is the critical stage when the egg is retrieved. Here, most patients are given pain medication to help with the discomfort. A thin needle is used to retrieve the fluid from the follicles of the upper vaginal wall. A gentle suction is used to accomplish this. The egg is then isolated from the fluid so drawn and this egg is placed in a culture dish along with important nutrients. This is eventually transferred to an incubator,
- Fertilization: This is another vital stage as the egg is fused with the sperm in this stage. Here, the sperm from your partner or a donor is used. Generally, the most active sperm is picked and it is fused with the egg in a special chamber. While sometimes it is directly inserted into the egg, at other times it is just mixed in. This is left in an incubator and is constantly monitored to ensure that a healthy embryo develops from this.
- Implantation: This is the final stage of the process where the embryo needs to be transferred to the uterus. Here, the best embryo’s or the ones that have the best chance of survival will be picked and transferred through a speculum. A small plastic tube which is placed in the cervix is used to transfer the embryo. Once this process has been completed, generally at least 24 hours of bed rest is advised.
Such a controlled environment can significantly increase your chances of becoming pregnant. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
There are many different modes of contraception available to women today. Tubal ligation is considered the most effective amongst these. This involves permanently blocking the fallopian tubes by clipping, cutting or burning them. The only downside to this form of contraception is its permanence. Conceiving a child after tubal ligat ion is difficult but not impossible. The two modes of treatment available to women who have undergone this procedure are tubal ligation reversal and IVF.
As the name suggests, a tubal ligation reversal procedure reconnects the fallopian tubes. This procedure involves making a 10-15cm incision in the lower abdomen. Tiny stitches are then used to reconnect the two blocked ends of the fallopian tubes. This procedure is usually performed while the patient is under general anaesthesia and could involve a few days hospital stay. A tubal ligation reversal procedure can also be performed as a keyhole procedure. This procedure gives a woman a chance to conceive naturally. The younger the woman is, the higher are her chances of conception after this procedure. In the case of patients over the age of 40 years, the chances of a successful conception after this procedure are very slim.
IVF or In vitro fertilization involves harvesting the eggs from the patient’s ovaries, fertilizing them in a lab and then reintroducing the embryo into the patient’s uterus. When it comes to assisted reproductive therapy, IVF is more successful than a reverse tubal ligation. Another advantage of IVF over reverse tubal ligation is the fact that with IVF the woman will still have an efficient form of birth control even after the pregnancy. IVF also does not need any hospitalization. One of the downsides of a reverse tubal ligation is the high risk of a tubal ectopic pregnancy. In this case, the fertilized egg is implanted outside the uterus. This type of pregnancy cannot usually be taken to full term and can be life-threatening for the woman.
On the flip side, IVF can often need repeat cycles which often works out to be quite expensive. These costs can be an issue for a woman who wants more than one child. In the case of reverse tubal ligation, the costs are a one-time investment.
One of the other common side effects of IVF is multiple pregnancy. For women who do not want more than one child, this can again be a problem. Thus, both forms of treatment have their advantages and disadvantages.
IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a form of technology that aids in assisted reproduction. While more people are turning towards this technology because of the results that they promise, not everyone sees the same results. If you look at the process, it seems quite simple. Here, a sperm and an egg are manually combined outside the body and then inserted into the uterus. It is almost impossible to accurately gauge how effective will this procedure prove to be for you, but there are factors that can affect the outcome of such a procedure-
- Age: The older you get the tougher it is to get the right outcome but it is not right to judge the success rate based on this factor alone. Age should be used as a factor only in conjunction with other factors or problems that you may be experiencing. Over the years, the age factor has steadily risen and this is thanks to the technology getting better. So, the technology is capable of helping you get pregnant and age should not restrict you.
- Earlier Pregnancies: If you have had successful pregnancies earlier, and have carried a baby to term, then the chances are quite high for a successful IVF procedure. However, on the other hand, failed pregnancies or miscarriages can reduce the chances of a successful IVF but you should not rule out IVF automatically as well.
- Fertility Problems: There are several common problems such as uterine abnormalities, fibroid tumors, ovarian dysfunction, length of time being infertile which can be treated quite effectively using the IVF technology. While statistically it is commonly seen that when people struggle with infertility issues over a period, the technology is progressively getting better and therefore each individual situation or problem should be carefully assessed before coming to a conclusion one way or the other.
- Lifestyle: One of the biggest problems that women of this generation face are lifestyle issues. So, issues such as obesity, smoking or excessive drinking can severely affect your chances of becoming pregnant. While smoking can age your ovaries much quicker, obesity can affect your menstrual cycle and ovulation. Smokers will need more cycles of IVF to be successful while being obese can also make it difficult for you to carry a baby to term.
- Clinic and the doctors: There are several fertility clinics and you should pay close attention to some things such as the experience of the doctors in the clinic, their success rates over the years and the types of patients they accept.
Getting pregnant through this technology can be stressful. So, look for the best clinic and professionals to better your chances of success! In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
My wife has pcod, her period is not regular, duration 1 to 3 days, she is used medicine obimet sr 1 mg, ecosprin 75, come 100, we are trying to conceive last 6 month but not success yet, her amh is 2.8, can she conceive naturally or we are thinking else. Please suggest us. Period follow is not normal.
Issues with conception and long periods of trying to have a baby without much success do take a toll on couples. Apart from buying several fertility and pregnancy tests, the overbearing thought of infertility treatments and their expenses can also be quite stressful for a couple. While the concept of stress and how it affects each individual may be different, the one commonality is that it does affect every couple that undertakes this journey. There have been enough studies about stress affecting the results of an IVF and there seems to be some agreement that stress does not affect the outcome one way or the other.
- Overall well-being: Stress is definitely a problem for our overall well-being but there is little to worry when it comes to the success of your IVF cycle. Well, thanks to that there is one less thing to worry about. Since there are quite a few things you worry about once a cycle has been completed, the common thing you will hear from everyone around you is to de-stress. For one thing, the drugs that go with such treatments make everything so much more magnified and hence every small thought is magnified ten-fold while on the treatment.
- Stress in combination with other habits may be affect outcomes: While stress can delay a successful outcome, it will not completely stop you from getting pregnant. However, this stress coupled with several bad habits or problems can lead to issues which may not help in this journey. For instance, sleep can play a huge role in keeping you healthy and in the right condition to get pregnant. So, if you are having sleepless nights thanks to long and stressful meetings, it is time to rethink your schedule. Your lack of sleep may be combining with the stress to prevent a successful IVF cycle.
- Unhealthy Eating: Stress is a big trigger for unhealthy eating and most people do tend to binge eat when they are stressed. IVF and the medications associated with it can keep you on the edge as far as stress is concerned and it is very critical to eat healthy while you are attempting to get pregnant. Obesity and weight gain can be a serious impediment as far as successful trials are concerned. It is not only females but males can also be seriously affected by obesity. The sperm count can be drastically low in those that are overweight.
Childbirth comes within an age bracket. Women feel this more so than men. Career demands or other personal choices can delay the time to get pregnant. Thus, freezing your eggs can prove to be beneficial, if you delay childbirth to focus on your career or education, or if you have certain medical conditions such as cancer.
- Egg Retrieval: Before the eggs are harvested, there is a lot you have to do. The first month is spent taking blood tests and ultrasounds. In the second month, you will have to take injections before your procedure for egg retrieval. Ultrasounds and blood tests are also conducted at this stage to monitor the growth of the eggs. Around the time of your ovulation, the eggs will be harvested. You will be lightly sedated during the procedure. After the procedure, you might feel bloated and experience cramping. At least 15 eggs are retrieved for optimum chances. Injections prescribed are all hormone injections which you can self-administer.
- Freezing and Storage: The largest human cell is the egg. It is comprised mainly of water. When the eggs are frozen, crystals can form which can destroy it. So an anti-freeze replaces the water after the eggs are dehydrated. This prevents crystal formation. Eggs are frozen using vitrification. In this process, the eggs are either slowly or flash frozen. Eggs can be frozen for as long as 10 years. This does not hamper the quality.
- Risks: There is no guarantee that freezing eggs will lead to having a baby. Sometimes, eggs do not survive the freezing or the thaw.
- Advantages: For women who are suffering from cancer, freezing their eggs might be the best option. They might want to preserve their fertility before their cancer treatment starts. This is useful since radiation and chemotherapy can harm your chances of getting pregnant.
The obvious advantage of freezing your eggs would be the fact that it gives you time. It lets you decide and keeps you one step ahead of your biological clock.

There exists a lot of hue and cry about infertility among women throughout the world. But in reality, female infertility is not the only concern. Male infertility is also a prevalent adversity and there are many lifestyle disorders that lead to low sperm count among urban men. The following are the foremost factors that can render the men sterile.
- Smoking: Smoking not only causes cancer. It also encourages the development of other disorders like low sperm count in men. It reduces the number of antioxidants in the body. Therefore, quit smoking today and opt for alternative measures like exercise, nicotine chewing gums in order to divert yourself from the urge of smoking.
- Stress: Sperm count is inversely proportional to stress. The more you are stressed the lesser your sperm count will be and vice versa. The current life is fast-paced and taking it easy is a practical measure. However, exercising, maintaining a balanced diet and sleeping well could be viable measures when it comes to the reduction of stress.
- Sleeping disorder: Sleeping disorders go in tandem with stress. Any disruption in your slumber also leads to the lowering of sperm count. You can perform meditation and breathing exercises before hitting the bed, both of which induce sound sleep. Listening to soothing music before sleep can help too.
- Poor diet: Poor diet leads to the reduction in sperm count. Therefore, maintain a balanced diet. Make sure you consume a lot of fruits and vegetables and increase your intake of zinc which can be found in high concentration in foods like whole grain, eggs, fish and nuts.
- Excessive exercise: There is no accurate evidence as to whether excessive exercise can lead to a reduction in sperm count. However, it is wise to keep things in moderation.
- Intake of caffeine: Caffeine affects the normal level of zinc and calcium in the body and a lot of coffee per day means reduced sperm counts. Therefore, instead of coffee, you can always opt for healthier options like black tea or green tea.
- Alcoholism: Alcohol not only depletes the amount of testosterone in the body, it also diminishes the libidinal urge in men. Nothing can be healthier than leading the life of a teetotaler. If you are suffering from alcoholism, seek therapy today because it has other adverse effects as well.
- Obesity: Being overweight can take a toll on the health of your sperms. Therefore prevent yourself from accumulating extra fat and if you are already overweight, exercise and eat properly to reduce weight.
- Exposure to a lot of heat: Sitting in front of your computer for a long duration can affect the sperm count. The heat waves that are emitted by such machines are detrimental to health. Therefore, balance your work with some recreational strolls in the midst of nature to lead a healthier life.

Doctors believe that all women are born with a certain quantity of eggs as well as chances of conception. Also, all bodies are unique with individual strengths and weaknesses. Fertility tests can help in unravelling a number of issues as well as the health of your reproductive system as a whole. It is important to address various lifestyle issues in order to retain your fertility and ensure that you have a hassle-free conception. Read on to know more about the ways in which you can enhance your fertility.
- Oral health: There are a number of medical studies that go as far as suggesting that the state of the woman’s oral health is a significant factor when it comes to the proper functioning of her reproductive system. Many women who have required treatment for infertility are said to have suffered from oral health problems like inflammation and gum disease. One needs to avoid these issues so as to have more reproductive success. So, it is important to brush and floss on a regular basis in order to have better oral and reproductive health.
- Food: When we are talking about oral health, how can food intake be too far behind? In order to maintain good oral health, it is important to take care of your eating habits. One should steer clear of excessive sugary food intake as well as junk food intake which end up harming the gums as well as the overall system of the patient. Also, you must avoid eating processed carbohydrates like white bread and white rice. It is also a good idea to get your proteins from plant sources rather than animal sources. Furthermore, it is also a good option to strike trans fat off the list and to pick unsaturated fats instead. This kind of a diet is known as low glycemic diet which keeps the sugar levels stable. This helps in boosting all body functions in general, including one’s fertility.
- Smoking: As per a number of medical studies, about 13 per cent of the infertility cases are linked with excessive smoking. Tobacco has an adverse effect on the state of your fertility, and it usually makes the eggs deteriorate at a much faster rate. It can also cause early miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, which is a dangerous condition where the egg gets lodged in the fallopian tube. Smoking can also bring about early menopause.
- Vitamin supplements: Many doctors suggest that once a woman has entered her child bearing years, it is important to start taking multivitamins as these contain folic acid. Folic acid is an important nutrient that helps in foetal growth and stimulates ovulation.

Infertility is a condition that can be caused due to a variety of reasons, for both males as well as females. Yet, it also comes with plenty of emotional baggage because there is a great deal of social stigma attached to childless parents, especially in the developing countries like India, where we still hold on to traditional thinking which does not really justify modern day realities.
Understanding Infertility in the Developing World: As per medical science, infertility is defined as a problem that is faced by couples who do not manage to conceive even after a year of trying without any birth control measures. In countries like ours, there is a great social stigma that is attached to being childless. As per many studies by the World Health Organization (WHO), about 15% of couples the world over are affected by infertility. Also, such cases go undetected because there is a great social stigma attached to the same. Further, there may be underlying conditions like Tuberculosis which may have been undiagnosed because people do not like to talk to doctors about the symptoms. The main problem in countries like India, and others areas is that people do not open up about such problems and they consider doctors and other medical practitioners as strangers.
Still in the Dark Ages: Even though we have made the transition from an agricultural country where we would pray to the elements and wait for signs for all our everyday activities from harvesting to childbirth, to an industrial country we are still in the dark ages as far as our social setup goes. There are many educated and well-heeled families where being childless is considered as an issue. And many people tend to go to astrologers and temples to change their fate, where a simple visit to a doctor and procedures like IVF, or adoption as the last resort, can also work out.
Infertility Stigma for Males and Females: For an infertile couple, the problem may stem from the male, or the female or both partners. There are still many social stigmas that are attached to this and many people in countries like India tend to call the woman barren, if she is unable to bear a child. In many cases, the male partner does not even go in for a check up as it is not even considered as an option that the problem might lie with him. Male erectile dysfunction, ejaculation problems, and general infertility can cause a range of issues for the couple when it comes to conception. So it is imperative to have the same checked by the doctor so that a sperm test can also be conducted and the treatment can carry on accordingly with the help of IUI or IVF.
