    What is Fertility Treatment?

It can be due to blocked fallopian tubes, severe endometriosis, ovarian disorders, male infertility or sometimes the cause is unknown. The couple’s age also plays an important role in infertility treatments as the chances of success drop due to deterioration of the reproductive system.

    What is Fertility Treatment

    Types of Infertility treatments offered in India:

    The good news for the childless couples is that most of the IVF clinics in India are specialized for treating every type of infertility problem. The childless couples who are tired of running around to various infertility clinics to get the best treatment can now head towards India with a hope of successful treatment. The major infertility issues resolved are blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, ovulation problems, low ovarian reserve or issues related to sperm count and motility. There is a wide range of infertility treatments such as IVF, ICSI, IUI, and Surrogacy procedures.

    • In Vitro Fertilization (IVF): IVF is one of the types of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). It is a process that involves fertilization of an egg with the sperm in an advanced IVF laboratory. The process involves stimulating the ovary to grow follicles which are required in the In Vitro Fertilization procedure. The eggs are then collected from the ovaries via a small procedure and are kept for fertilization with the sperm in a petri dish under a specific temperature. After the eggs are fertilized with the sperm in an advanced IVF laboratory the embryo is formed and is then transferred to the uterus of a woman. The process is called "In Vitro" as the fertilization occurs outside the body in a well equipped IVF laboratory in a standard fertility clinic. (3) IVF success rates are the percentage of the performed IVF procedures that result in a favorable outcome or had a positive outcome. (4) Compared to other infertility treatments, IVF treatment provides the best chance of success in having a baby. IVF procedure is the best option for couples who cannot conceive naturally.
    • Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): Intrauterine Insemination is one of the commonly used infertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate egg fertilization. The main aim of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is to boost the chances of sperm that reach the blocked fallopian tubesin the woman for fertilizing eggs. This helps in making a pregnancy successful in case of lack of intercourse in such cases. (5) It is an affordable treatment option compared to other infertility treatments in India. This infertility treatment is recommended to the patients having endometriosis, pelvic infections, or blocked fallopian tubes. If a couple has the IUI procedure performed each month then success rates may reach as high as 20% per cycle. The success rate of IUI procedure depends on variables such as the age of the female, the reason for infertility, and whether fertility drugs were used, among other variables. IUI procedure is performed at the time of ovulation, generally within 24-36 hours after the LH surge is detected. It can be also performed after the “trigger” injection of hCG is administered to the patient. (6)
    • Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI): Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is one of the specialized forms of infertility procedures that is used primarily for the treatment of severe cases of male-factor infertility. In the process of ICSI, an injection is inserted directly into a mature egg for successful fertilization to result in a positive pregnancy. This helps in fertilization of egg which leads to embryo formation. After the embryo is formed then it is transferred to the uterus of a woman for a successful pregnancy. (7) ICSI procedure is an effective treatment for men with infertility. (8) It is used in cases which have been diagnosed with severe infertility issues in men. It is the most successful type of treatment for infertile men.
    • Surrogacy: Surrogacy is a medical procedure supported by a legal agreement, where a surrogate mother is ready to carry a pregnancy for intended parents. (9) Surrogacy process involves a surrogate mother who carries the baby for the intended parents. To ensure that the intended parents face no obstacles to get their baby from the surrogate mother. Altruistic surrogacy is currently legal in India. According to the Bill, only legally married Indian couples who are allowed to opt for surrogacy treatment. Also in Altruistic surrogacy, only close relatives can become a surrogate for “medically proven infertile" couples in India. Both parties need to have a mutual understanding while opting for the procedure. (10) It is the last option for all the infertile couples or singles to accomplish their parenthood dream. Every country has its own surrogacy related regulations which need to be followed from time to time for each of the procedures.
    • TESA: TESAstands for Testicular Epididymal Sperm Aspiration. It is one of the recently introduced infertility procedures in recent times. In this procedure, the sperms are extracted from testes and are then used in the In Vitro Fertilization procedure for fertilizing eggs thus forming required embryos. An increasing number of cases are performed by non-urologists also at times known as called Andrologist.
    • MESA: MESA means Micro Epididymal Sperm Aspiration. This is a procedure performed for men who have undergone vasectomy procedure or who are suffering from epididymal obstruction. It is one of the advanced procedure used to help an infertile couple to have their baby.
    • Pregnancy delivery: Many fertility centers in India provide a go-to guide during pregnancy delivery. These centers guide patients and help them prepare for the labor pain which happens during pregnancy. Safe pregnancy delivery and childbirth are essential to give every child the best start in life and the chance to fulfill their potential. The main aim of the hospitals or clinics is to put women at the center of care, enhance their pregnancy experience, and ensure their babies have a healthy, positive beginning. (11)
