  • Infertility is a global problem affecting millions of people
  • Only 1% of the infertile married couples undergo this treatment
  • Know the reasons why they do not opt for a fertility treatment

Having a child post marriage is a very important part of life. The pain of not having a child is only felt by parents who cannot conceive. Infertility is a global problem affecting millions of people. In the past few decades, there has been a significant increase in the number infertility cases in both men and women of reproductive age.

Infertility is one of the most difficult challenges faced by married couples and there can be multiple causes of infertility. Our lifestyle habits are cited as a major cause of infertility. It includes, increased age of marriage, working women, consumption of alcohol and tobacco and obesity. Some of the other causes of infertility include polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometrial tuberculosis and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). 

Scientists have made the treatment of infertility possible through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Despite the availability of this treatment, only 1% of the infertile married couples undergo this treatment. Here are some of the reasons why they do not opt for a fertility treatment: 

Cost of the Treatment 

The cost of IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) in India costs around 1.5 to 2 lacs per cycle. The higher the number of these cycles, the higher would be the cost of overall treatment. Since there is no specific endpoint to the treatment, managing expenses can be quite challenging.

Limited Number of Specialists 

There are only a limited number of embryologists or IVF specialists available in the country, making it difficult for most of the childless couples to seek treatment. Moreover, it is not easy for people living in remote areas to get treated for infertility as it is only availablein 8 of the metropolitan cities.

Lack of Awareness 

People who are on a quest to conceive a child are not even aware of the various solutions available in the country. Looking at the magnitude of the problem, institutionalising infertility treatments is the need of the hour.

However, there are many couples who have successfully conceived with the help of IVF treatment. Childless couples who once suffered from infertility are proud parents of beautiful children today. The biggest help are institutions that understand the problem of infertility and provide IVF treatment services at reasonable prices. One such institution is Indira IVF, which has given 32,000 women the gift of motherhood in the past 8 years. 

Understanding the seriousness of infertility in the country, Dr. Ajay Murdia established Indira IVF 8 years ago. Today, the hospital has 50 IVF centres across the whole country. In an attempt to spread awareness, Dr. Ajay Murdia with the help of Indira IVF has successfully set up 1,683 awareness camps across 520 cities in 20 states in the country. 

Indira IVF is a hospital where they practice closed working chamber technique and it has a success rate of 72% on record. The main reason behind the success of Indira IVF is that the treatment is available at a cheaper rate (between 1.5 and 2 lacs) as compared to other institutions that charge around 5 lacs. Making babies is now possible for more childless couples. With the treatment available now, more such couples will be able to welcome their babies home.
