HEALTH CARE – IN VITRO FERTILIZATION
One of the most difficult pains to bear is not any physical pain, rather the psychological pain of not being able to conceive, especially when you have made up your mind to get pregnant. Pause – when the hard part is not being a parent, but conceiving a baby first.
In today’s fast paced and stressed out the world, with rapidly changing lifestyles, ill-timed food habits, and careers being the priority over family planning, infertility is a rising problem; and especially in the UAE, the numbers are quite alarming. According to a recent study done by Aster DM Healthcare, one out of five couples in UAE face fertility issues, and that the annual figures of women seeking treatment will almost double by 2030.
Dr. Gautam Allahbadia, Specialist IVF Consultant, Aster Clinics and Hospitals, is of the opinion that various factors like age, hormones, obesity, life-style pressures can all have an adverse impact on the fertility factor of a woman. A pioneer of the IVF LITE treatment, Dr. Gautam is of the belief that although natural conception is the best way to conceive, medical help is always available for couples to fulfill their dreams. The IVF technique is one such medical miracle that has been helping parents for a long time now.
However, there have been many speculations about the side-effects and unaffordable expenses related to IVF technique; but thankfully Dr. Gautam, along with his team at the Aster Clinics and Hospitals, has devised the revolutionary IVF Lite treatment that not just reduces the numbers of medicines and the injections that a woman is subjected to, but also significantly brings the cost of the otherwise unaffordable treatment.
The IVF Lite initiative by Aster Clinics and Hospitals is indeed a ray of hope to a lot of couples and the advancement in medical science can help everyone, however, just take note of the following points –
If you are more than 30 years old, definitely consult an expert about for your family planning and related issues.
Both partners must get themselves checked for vital parameters of fertility
And, last but not the least, believe in your doctor and not on internet search engines.
The process to conceive can be both frustrating and painful for a couple, but believe in miracles and don’t lose hope, because even miracles take a little time. Do share your thoughts with me as I would love to hear more from you on this.
Love and Health,
