ICSI Treatment in Bangalore Provides the Best Facilities

Updated on October 3, 2016

Infertility is a Major Concern in India

According to a survey conducted by Helping Families, a pharmaceutical company, infertility is the main reason why couples are opting for ICSI treatments in India. Out of the total people surveyed, 46% were found to be infertile. The survey covered nine major cities in the country and also revealed that the problem also exists in the younger generation, with 34% of the total couples who opted for the assisted reproductive technology (ART) falling between the ages of 21 and 30 years.

Earlier, the problem had been associated with the urban cities and this is why ICSI treatment in Bangalore and other Tier-1 cities gained popularity. However, over the last few years, the rising incidence of infertility has led to various forms of fertility treatment being made available in the tier-2 and tier-3 cities as well. One of the major reasons for this is the change in lifestyle and eating habits among Indians.

Research also shows that between 2011 and 2016, there has been an increase of 20%-30% in infertility cases in India and it is not confined to women. While issues like these are considered a taboo in the country, some celebrities have come out and made bold announcements, helping others to make a fruitful decision.

The Inspiring Case of Farah Khan

Dr. Firuza Parikh, who has been the baton holder for the fertility treatment movement in India, said in one an interview to DNA, “The success rate with thawing the eggs depends on the age of the woman; so if someone comes at a younger age, she will have a higher chance of having a baby than say somebody who freezes her eggs at 40.” She believes that 90% of the infertility cases can be treated if reported at the right time and treated in the right manner.

Farah Khan, the famous Bollywood choreographer, director and actor, got married to writer-director Shirish Kunder in her early 40s. The couple wanted to start a family but this where the age factor came into play. So, they decided to tackle this problem with IVF treatment and with the help of Firuza Parikh, Farah finally gave birth to not one but three children at the age of 43. Some other big names from the industry who have followed her lead are Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Tushar Kapoor and Sohail Khan.

Myths About Infertility

The biggest problem in India is the lack of knowledge about the infertility, according to the experts at one of the best ICSI treatment centers in Bangalore. The WHO defines infertility as an inability to become pregnant, maintain pregnancy or carry pregnancy to live birth. Here are a few myths that you should be aware about:

  • There is a general belief that the menstrual cycle lasts for 28 days but it isn't the case for every woman. A normal cycle can be anywhere between 21 and 36 days, and 28 is just the average figure.
  • Another common belief is that a man with greater sex drive is likely to have normal sperm count. However, there is absolutely no connection between virility and fertility in men and a man with a normal sex drive may have no sperm count at all. Another important thing is that although most couples think that the sperm lives for just a few hours, a normal sperm may have a life of up to five days.

Infertility has nothing to do with age or gender. It is found equally in men and women, and in fact, 20% of the infertility cases are a combination of both. Age does play an important part but some women have faced fertility problems at a younger age too. Generally, it declines after you turn 35.
