No facilities for Infertility Problem in Himachal

9 patients went for IVF in year 2006

Shimla: In Himachal, the increasing Infertility Problem is becoming cause of worry. When most couples get married they expect to have their own babies. Many naively expect they will get pregnant the very first month they try – and are concerned when a pregnancy does not occur. Such cases are increasing continuously in the state. According to the record of Health Deptt. the cases are more than fifty per year. But the pity is, there is not a single way by which worried couples should be helped. For Infertility Problem, patients are referred to other parts of the country, like Chandigrah, Delhi and Mumbai. The State Hospital for Mother and Child, KNH in Shimla is completely helpless. Head of Deptt. Mrs. Dr. Kumud Bala Gupta said that the Hospital counsel the patient and refer.

She said that the causes of Infertility in Himachal are many. In the Year 2006 we have sent nine couples for Test Tube Baby (IVF ) after proper counseling, but no one brought the results. Dr. Gupta said that before worrying, remember that in a single menstrual cycle, the chance of a perfectly normal couple achieving a successful pregnancy is only about 25%. This is called their fecudity, which describes their fertility potential. Over a period of a year, the chance of a successful pregnancy is between 80 and 90%; so that 7 out of 8 couples will be pregnant within a year. These are the normal “fertile” couples. The rest are “labeled ” infertile – the medical text book definition of infertility being the inability to conceive even after trying for a year.

The chances of pregnancy for a couple in a given cycle will depend upon many things. The age of the woman. As the age increasing, the number of eggs and their quality starts decreasing. While there is no normal frequency for sex, the optimal frequency of intercourse if you are trying to get pregnant is about 3 times a week in the fertile period. Couples, who have intercourse less frequently, have a diminished chance of conceiving. In Himachal, the lack of knowledge and hesitation even between husband and wife increases their chances of fertility . In such problem the primary medical can’t do anything, which brings result.

    not in a laboratory. INVOcell and INVO procedure is less expensive and simpler to perform
    than the conventional in vitro fertilization process. The current worldwide market is over
