With many people delaying parenthood, many are also finding it harder to conceive. You are certainly not alone and have nothing to be ashamed of. There are many options when it comes to infertility treatment in India, so you can still make your dreams of having a baby come true. The “right” treatment will depend on your situation. Here are just some of the many infertility treatments in India and how they work:
Intra Uterine Insemination
IUI is a process where washed sperm is placed directly into the woman’s uterus at the time of her ovulation. It is less invasive and less expensive compared to IVF and is among the best options for couples with male factor infertility. If the cause of your infertility is low sperm count and sperm motility, your doctor may first recommend you try for IUI before trying out IVF. Combined with other treatments like Super Ovulation, your success rate will be higher.
Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection
Like IUI, ICSI is also an infertility treatment recommended for couples with male factor infertility. It can treat azoospermia or zero sperm count. The process involves the microinjection of healthy sperms into individual eggs to achieve direct fertilization. When they form into embryos, they will be transferred into the woman’s uterus through guided embryo transfer.
In Vitro Fertilisation
IVF is an advanced procedure carried out by using a specialized machine called an IVF incubator. The process involves injecting IVF injections to stimulate the woman’s ovaries so that they will produce follicles that will then be harvested and placed in test tubes after a few days. The best eggs will be chosen and are fertilized in the test tube with the husband’s sperm. Once healthy embryos are formed, they will be transferred into the uterus. IVF is best for couples with severe male infertility and for those with PCOS, blocked fallopian tubes, or endometriosis.
