We know that there are a lot of infertility hospitals that are claiming to have very high success rates and expert in solving complex infertility problems. But these are very much at the claim level only. Some hospitals are genuine in these claims as they have years of expertise in solving infertility problems among couples. According to statistics, couples with male infertility problems are easily solved by IVF treatment when compared to female infertility.

The reason for this is because of the fact that male infertility is easily understood and the
treatment for this is very straightforward. Sperm count and sperm quality are the two things which define male infertility. Technologies like sperm extraction techniques and sperm filtrations can help in extracting the sperm cells which can be used in the IVF treatment in which the infusion of sperm to meet the egg is done artificially. The best infertility specialist in Gurgaon will do the procedure in cycles and hence there will be two or three cycles involved in the IVF treatment. The success factor of an IVF cycle is very is important and that depends on the quality of the extracted sperms and the strength of fertilization that happens with the egg cell inside the test tube. This fertilized egg called as the embryo.

There is always a cost that is associated with the IVF treatment. IVF treatments are always
supported by other associated treatments which aid in the entire treatment. IUI, ICSI & HSG are some of the commonly associated treatments which aides an IVF treatment. The way how IVF is generally done depends on a lot of factors. Some of them are the way how fertilization itself happens. In case of extreme male infertility, an option of looking for a sperm donor comes into place and hence there is an associated cost with this. IUI cost in Bangalore can range from low to moderate depending upon the complexity.

The most important feature of the IVF treatment is our body’s responsiveness towards the
treatment. Few couples might get conceived in the 1st  cycle of the IVF and few of them need more than one cycles. IVF cycles can take some time as it cannot be done immediately. It would take at least 2 to 3 months for the next cycle to begin after the 1st  cycle fails.

Infertile Women Tend to Develop High risk of Cancer

For the study, the team analysed data from 64,345 infertile women who were followed for nearly four years

Infertility is associated with a higher risk of developing cancer in women of childbearing age, say researchers including one of Indian-origin.

The findings, published in the journal Human Reproduction, showed that infertile women had an overall 18 per cent higher risk of developing cancer compared to women who were not infertile.

However, the absolute risk is very low at just two per cent compared to 1.7 per cent among women who are not infertile, found researchers at Stanford University in the US.

“We do not know the causes of the increase in cancer that we found in this study, whether it might be the infertility itself, the causes of the infertility, or the infertility treatment,” said lead author Gayathree Murugappan.

“We can only show there is an association between them,” she added.

For the study, the team analysed data from 64,345 infertile women who were followed for nearly four years.

Although breast cancer was the most common in both fertile and infertile women, the team found a slightly higher risk of hormone-driven cancers of the ovary and uterus among the infertile women.

They also found a slightly higher risk of cancers of the lung, thyroid, liver and gallbladder and leukaemia among the infertile women.

“While several of these associations were significant, it is important to note that the absolute increases in risk were modest,” said Murugappan.

“The low overall incidence of cancer among these women means that one in 49 infertile women would develop cancer during the follow-up period compared to one in 59 women who were not infertile,” said Michael Eisenberg, Associate Professor at the varsity.

Further research needs to be carried out to determine what factors may be influencing the long-term risk of cancer for infertile women, Eisenberg noted. (IANS)
