The assisted reproductive technology (ART) is bringing hope to millions of people, and Indians are rapidly adopting the treatments to fulfill their dreams of childbirth, stated Dr Kshitiz Murdia, CEO, Indira IVF.
 
In recent years, the discourse on infertility and the available technologies to treat it has picked up the pace in the country and around the world.

“In India, access to the right diagnosis and treatment is a huge challenge that leaves couples overwhelmed at times. With the advancement of fertility treatment across the world, most conditions relating to infertility are curable. Besides other reasons, the right age could be the single most important factor affecting live birth. At the same time, while it is a common perception that people in their late thirties may be seeking consultation on assisted reproductive technologies, we have noticed an uptick in the number of younger couples reaching out to infertility experts for seeking options for treatment. On an average, 40% of the couples coming to Indira IVF are from the younger age group,” Dr Murdia said.

According to the World Health Organisation data, globally 48 million couples and 186 million individuals are infertile. The UN health body defines ‘infertility’ as a disease of male or female reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.
 
Over the years, both medicine and technology have evolved to provide solutions to expecting parents. Today, through ART, female and male infertility has become treatable. ART includes many procedures; the most prominent methods include –In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), cryopreservation of gametes (egg or sperm) or embryos, Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT), Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT), and Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT), among others.
 
Dr Murdia highlighted that, there are many treatment procedures, surgeries, tests, medical programmes, and options available such as laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, Laser-Assisted Hatching (LAH), and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) that aid and complement the process.
 
While all the methods of ART have their pros and are known to be successful, they come bearing challenges and complications as well. The treatment procedure can be physically and emotionally draining for the aspiring couple.

“Taking the time to find and visit the best IVF facilities and experts as per one’s requirements is imperative to ensure higher success rate. It is very important to have these conversations with your doctors to understand any health and infertility issues you might be experiencing; only then can they suggest the necessary course of treatment available,” added Dr Murdia.
