Every 7th couple faces Infertility Problems: Dr Shivani Gour
Gwalior, City, News/ no 1
Today every 7th couple is facing the problem of infertility. Reproductive capacity in women can be influenced by various health problems like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCO), Endometriosis, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, and Fibroid in the Uterus, Anaemia, Thyroid Problems, Blocked Fallopian Tubes, Candida and Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) etc. Similarly, heavy drinking, smoking, age (more than 35 years), obesity, high stress, irregular and painful periods, malnutrition or intense physical training influences the reproductive capability of women.
Delhi based IVF specialist Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour, present in the CME as chief speaker, organized by the Gwalior Obstetric & Gynaecological Society regarding Infertility said this. She said infertility is being treated by the most advanced techniques like IUI, IVF and Surrogacy. Dr Shivani said that women have been successful in getting babies either by IVF or through a surrogate mother. But every woman cannot avail this technique as it is expensive and out of reach for many. Plus its rules and regulations are very strict. New bill of surrogacy will make impossible for ordinary people to avail surrogacy as only close relatives will be allowed to be a surrogate mother. This is the only way forward and nucleus families will face difficulty. We might come to a situation that for treatment of joint pains also there won’t be any alternative in India and the patient will have to travel to USA, Ukraine or Kenya. Due to this every year only 5 to 6 thousand can become surrogates. Before this, Dr Kusum lata Singhal, the President of the society highlighted the scheduled topic. Dr Kirti Ghore moderated and Dr Veera Lohia gave vote of thanks. The chairperson of the event Dr Jyoti Bindal, Dr Meena Mundra and Dr Pratistha Dalmia were also present. Reputed Gynecologists of the city like Dr Roza Olyai, Dr Ratna Kaul, Dr Gayatri Nagori, Dr Preeti Gupta, Dr Rita Mishra, Dr Yashodhara Gaur, Dr Archana Maurya attended the event.
