What Is infertility?
Infertility simply means inability to get pregnant after 9-12 months of unprotected intercourse.
Up to 1 in 6 to 7 couples have problems conceiving and many of these couples seek medical advice and treatments.
Some patients will need only advice or reassurance, others may need drugs therapy or surgery.
Some, however, will require assisted conception techniques like in-vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to achieve pregnancy.
What help is available?
Almost all couples with infertility of greater than 3years duration will require assisted reproductive techniques. Examples of these are IVF, GIFT, ZIFT , ICSI etc.
In this procedure, the woman is given drugs to stimulate the ovaries to produce a number of eggs (10-16). These eggs are collected by ultrasound scan-directed follicular aspiration.
The eggs are then placed in close contact with the sperm (IVF) or injected (ICSI) to generate embryos. The resulting embryos (Max.of 3) are then transferred into the uterus and pregnancy allowed to begin.
Who needs IVF /ICSI?
Couples that will benefit from assisted reproductive technology include those with :
1. bilateral tubal blockage/ absence or unilateral blockage with more than 3years subfertility.
2.Azoospermia (No sperm in the ejaculate ) or Oligospermia with more than 3years subfertility.
3. Anovulation is unresponsive to at least 1year of ovulation induction therapy.
4.Unexplained infertility for more than 3years
5. Older women who require treatment with donated eggs.
