Essential Steps to a Healthy Pregnancy

Regular intake of folic acid: Begin or continue to take at least 400 micrograms of folic acid by taking vitamin supplements every day to reduce the child’s risk of neural tube defects. Also, it is difficult to get all the folic acid you need only from food. Most prenatal vitamins contain 400 micrograms of folic acid.
Do not use alcohol, tobacco or drugs in any form: Drinking alcohol, smoking, and taking drugs during pregnancy can increase the child’s risk for problems such as foetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other life threatening problems. FASDs have a variety of effects on the foetus which result due to the mother drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Smoking tobacco, smoking marijuana, exposure to second-hand smoke and taking drugs during pregnancy can also harm the foetus and affect infant health.
Talk to your doctor about medications: Most of the women take four or more medications during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor about the prescribed medications and herbal and vitamin supplements. Certain medications and some dietary or herbal supplements can harm the foetus during pregnancy.
Avoid exposure to toxic substances: During pregnancy, exposure to radiation, pesticides, some metals and certain types of chemicals can cause birth defects, premature birth and miscarriage. A few examples of exposures that are known to be toxic to the developing foetus are lead, radiation and solvents.
Follow a healthy diet: Choose different types of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and dairy products to help ensure the developing foetus gets all the nutrients it needs. Make sure you also drink plenty of water. Consult the doctor to learn more about how much you should eat during pregnancy, the nutrients required and how much caffeine is safe to drink.
Eat a safe diet: Avoid certain foods such as raw fish, undercooked meat, deli meat, papaya and unpasteurized cheeses. Do not consume anything which you are not comfortable eating.
Limit caffeine intake: Too much caffeine can increase the risk of miscarriage. Talk to the doctor about the amount of caffeine you get from coffee, tea, or soda. A limit of 200 milligrams per day is advisable. 
Talk to the doctor about physical activity:  Most women can continue regular physical activity throughout pregnancy. Regular physical activity will help you feel better physically and mentally, sleep better and prepare your body for birth.
Maintain a healthy weight: Gaining too much or too little weight during pregnancy increases the risk of different problems for both the mother and the infant. Following a healthy diet and getting regular physical exercise can help you stay within the recommended weight. The amount of weight you should gain during pregnancy depends on your pre-pregnancy weight and body mass index (BMI).

Overcome the Barriers and Build Your Family

Male Infertility refers to a man’s inability to cause pregnancy in a fertile female partner. A man’s fertility generally depends on the quantity and quality of the sperm. If the number of sperms a man ejaculates is less or if the quality of sperms is poor, it will be difficult and sometimes impossible, for him to cause a pregnancy.

Infertility is a widespread problem. For about one couple in five infertile couples the problem lies only because of the male partner. It is estimated that one in 20 men have some or the other kind of fertility problem with low numbers of sperm in the ejaculate. However, only about one in every 100 men has no traces sperm in his ejaculate.

Male infertility is usually caused due to the problems that affect either the sperm production or the sperm transport. Only through medical testing, the doctor will be able to find the cause of the problem.

About two-thirds of infertile men have a problem with producing the sperm in the testes. Either low numbers of sperm are made or the sperm that are made do not function properly.

Sperm transportation problems are found in about one in every five infertile men, including men who have undergone a vasectomy but now wish to have more children. Blockages in the tubes leading sperm away from the testes towards the penis can cause a complete lack of sperm in the ejaculated semen.
Other less common causes of infertility include: sexual problems that affect whether semen is able to enter the woman’s vagina for fertilisation to take place; low levels of hormones made in the pituitary gland that act on the testes and sperm antibodies. In most men, the sperm antibodies will not affect the chance of a pregnancy but in some men sperm antibodies reduce fertility.
  • Avoid smoking as it alters sperm DNA.
  • Avoid heavy drugs and alcohol intake.
  • Avoiding excessive heat to the testes.
  • Wearing a jockstrap to protect the testicles in any sports.

Treatments will vary according to the underlying disease and the degree of the impairment of the male fertility. Pre-testicular conditions can often be addressed by medical means or interventions. Testicular-based male infertility tends resists medication. Usual approaches include using the sperm for intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), or IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Obstructive causes of post-testicular infertility can be overcome with either surgery or IVF-ICSI. Ejaculatory factors may be treatable by medication, or by IUI therapy or IVF.

IVF : Helping You to Become Parents

IVF (In vitro Fertilization) is the Famous Procedure for Infertility. IVF treatment blessed many couples with babies. IVF is done with women own eggs/donor eggs and sperm/donor sperm. In vitro fertilization mainly helps to treat damaged and blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, cervical issues, male and unexplained infertility problems.
It is the process of combining eggs with sperms in a Petri dish in a sterile place, laboratory. Once the fertilization is over, the embryos are transferred into women uterus and the pregnancy is carried out.

IVF is recommended when the following condition exists
  • Diminished Ovarian Function or fallopian tube damage
  • Endometriosis
  • Anovulation and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Age Related Infertility Problems
  • Those who are at risk of genetic disease such as cystic fibrosis
The IVF cycle has four standards.
Ovarian stimulation: For producing multiple eggs hyperstimulation drugs such as Clomiphene is prescribed. Human Chorionic gonadotropin is given to nourish the egg maturation after 8-14 days.
Egg retrieval: After the hCG injection the eggs are retrieved within 34-36 hours. The OBG uses an ultrasound guided probe into the vagina for egg retrieval. With the help of a thin needle, the liquid is drained from the follicles.
Fertilization and Embryo Culture: The eggs are evaluated for its quality and maturity. Selected eggs are placed in the laboratory and then transferred into an incubator. The sperms and eggs are either place together for infusion or single sperm is injected into the egg. Thus insemination is performed.
Embryo Transfer and Cryopreservation: After the egg retrieval one or more embryos are implanted in the uterus. If the embryos are excess those will be frozen for future use. About two weeks is required to determine whether the pregnancy is achieved.
GIFT (gamete intrafallopian transfer) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) are other two procedures of IVF. GIFT is a method of egg harvesting as with IVF and mixing with sperm, then injected into the fallopian tube where the fertilization occurs. In ZIFT, before transferring the eggs into the fallopian tube, the egg is fertilized with sperm in the laboratory. Women who at least have one functioning of fallopian tube can undergo this procedure.

Delay in pregnancy due to Fibroids ? Laparoscopy is the right option

Fibroids also called uterine myomas, leiomyomas or fibromas are small rigid  tumors appear in  the walls of the reproductive system of a women ( uterus). Women in the age group of 20 to 50 have more chances of affecting this condition. Most of the fibroids are harm less in nature.


How fibroids causes infertility ?
  • While growing fibroid change the shape of cervix preventing the entry of sperm into uterus
  • It restricts the momentum of sperm or embryo
  • It will block the fallopian tubes
  • Badly impact the lining size of uterine cavity
  • It reduces the blood flow to the uterine cavity preventing embryo from sticking to the uterine wall thus affecting its development

Advancement of technology in the medical field has resulted in minimally invasive technologies that reduce the pain as well as recovery time of the patient. Nowadays Laparoscopic Surgery is effectively used for removing fibroids which causes infertility in women. It is also called Laparoscopic Myomectomy. In this doctor will make a small opening near the belly button. Then laparoscope, a slender tube fitted with camera is inserted into abdomen. Doctor will operate in real time by looking into monitor and inserting smaller instruments through it.

Infertility and its Treatment – Understand it better

Infertility is defined as a couple’s inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. Infertility is perceived as a social problem in our country. However, advances in medical science have made it possible for infertile couples to experience the joys of parenthood.

What are the main treatments used for infertility?

Fertility treatments can be grouped into three categories:

Medicines to improve fertility:  

  • Clomiphene is a medicine, which has been used to help with fertility for many years. It’s taken as a tablet. It releases more gonadotrophin hormones than normal. The extra amount of gonadotrophin hormones may stimulate the ovaries to ovulate.
  • Medicines that contain gonadotrophins are another type of treatment.  If this is injected, these medicines can also improve the fertility in men with certain types of hormonal problems that can affect the sperm count.
  • Metformin may also help to improve the fertility in some women with PCOS. It is commonly used to treat people suffering from diabetes.

What are the surgical treatments for fertility?

There are different types of surgical treatments for the fertility. Here are some of them:

Fallopian tube problems:  This surgery may help some women with infertility caused by fallopian tube problems.
Endometriosis:  This is a condition that occurs when cells from the lining of the womb (uterus) grow in other areas of the body. This surgery may help to improve fertility in women with endometriosis.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS):  An operation on the ovaries may be suitable for some women with PCOS.
Fibroids:  For women with fibroids, surgery (to remove the fibroid) may be considered if there are no other explanations for the infertility.

What is assisted conception? What are the processes associated with them?
Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is one technology, which is used to achieve pregnancy in various procedures such as fertility medication, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surrogacy. It is a reproductive technology used primarily for infertility treatments, and is also known as Fertility Treatment. Here are the various procedures associated with them: 
Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
This is the process by which sperm are placed into the woman's womb (uterus). It is done by using a fine plastic tube which is passed through the neck of the womb (the cervix) into the womb. Sperms are passed through the tube. It is relatively a straightforward procedure. It can be timed to coincide with ovulation (about halfway through a monthly cycle) in women who are still ovulating. Fertility medicines may also be given beforehand, to maximize the chance of ovulation occurring. Women, who have this procedure, need to have healthy fallopian tubes to allow the egg to travel from the ovary into the womb. If successful, fertilization takes place within the womb. Then the sperm can be used either from the male partner, or from a donor. If IUI does not work, couples tend to move on to try other methods described below.
In vitro fertilization (IVF)
IVF means In vitro fertilization outside the body. In vitro literally means in glass (either, in a laboratory dish or test tube). IVF is used in couples, whose infertility is caused by blocked fallopian tubes, or where their infertility is unexplained. It may also be used where there are certain problems with ovulation or a combination of factors causing infertility.
Gamete intra-fallopian transfer (GIFT)
A gamete is an egg or sperm. Eggs and sperm are collected in the same way as for IVF. The eggs are mixed with the sperm. The mixture of eggs and sperm is then placed into one of the woman's fallopian tubes. Therefore, unlike IVF, the sperm fertilises the egg naturally inside the woman's fallopian tube or womb, and not outside the body in a laboratory dish. GIFT is no longer a recommended process to be used.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
This technique involves an individual sperm being injected directly into an egg. Some cases of infertility are due to the sperm of a male partner, not being able to penetrate the outer part of the egg to fertilise the egg. ICSI can also be used when a male partner has a low sperm count, as only one sperm is needed.
Egg donation
This involves stimulating the ovaries of a female donor with fertility medicines, and collecting the eggs which form. The eggs are mixed with and fertilised by sperm of the recipient's partner (similar to IVF). After 2-3 days, embryos are placed in the womb of the recipient, via the cervix.
Embryo donation
Couples who have had successful IVF treatment may decide to donate any spare embryos to help other infertile couples.

What is surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a procedure in which a woman acts as a temporary mother by allowing her womb (uterus) to carry a pregnancy for another couple.

When is the help of surrogate mothers required?

  Absence of uterus from birth.

  • Uterus has been accidentally removed at a young age, either because of heavy bleeding or an accident during the first childbirth, or due to a tumor.
  • Repeated IVF failure. When failure is suspected to be due to a defective or diseased uterus, as in endometriosis or adhesion (gluing) between two inner walls of the uterus.
  • Sometimes, working women want surrogacy in order to avoid absence from work. Alternatively, some married women prefer surrogacy in order to not lose their abdominal shape or figure. However, these indications have not been accepted in the ‘guidelines’ being prepared for the ART clinics in India.
