While addressing the gathering Dr. Indira Hinduja, Honorary Gynaecologist (IVF and Infertility specialist) expressed, “Parenthood is a gift and every couple wishes to experience it. However, due to certain lifestyle and biological factors parenthood doesn’t naturally happen to afew. Most aspiring parents today in the urban cities willfully choose to embrace IVF to enter into parenthood. Although the awareness still lacks around this topic, there is an urgent need to eradicate stigma about imperfections of conceiving with technology”.

According to the Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction, infertility currently affects about 10 to 14 percent of the Indian population, with higher rates in urban areas where one out of six couples are impacted. Nearly 27.5 million couples actively trying to conceive suffer from infertility in India.

Due to altered lifestyle and environmental factors like smoking, drinking, poor diet, sedentary lifestyle together plays a major role importantin causing infertility amongst couples. Childhood infections, hormonal disorders, physical abnormalities, and obesity also brings down the chances of conceiving amongst men and women. The rise in the use of emergency contraceptives, sexually transmitted infections, PCOS, fibroids, and genital TB are also areas of concern.

During the sessions, the attendees were provided with information about the significance of age, physical and psychological factors involved to undergo the IVF treatment, mainly with its core focus on couples having issues likePCOS, Endometriosis and Fertility Preservation.
