Our Services includes the following:
Most patients with infertility become exhausted and start feeling hopeless as they go through repeated treatment failure over a prolonged period. In majority of these, adequate counselling may not have happened. Due to this, they become confused and lose trust in the treatment.
Effect of infertility on the couple:
Marriage without children is considered as a failure of the two individuals. The couple prefers to stay isolated as this becomes the topic of discussion in every family or social event they attend. They start getting a feeling of guilt, shame and even low self esteem. The lack of respect shown by the near and dear ones becomes tough to handle. These couples are under tremendous pressure to prove to themselves, their family and the society that they are as normal as the others. Just like a person with some disability is considered Not normal, similarly, an infertile couple especially a woman has a lot to prove. It becomes harder and harder for the couple to believe that sooner or later they will overcome the problem and have a baby. They start feeling hopeless, but most of them pretend to be fine. The couples may start feeling that they are a burden on the society. These feelings can be unpredictable, upsetting and can even cause tension in relationships and sometimes end some in depression. These couples may need help.
The role of Counseling:
Counselling is the most important aspect of fertility treatment. It is vital that the patients understand the reasons for their delay in conception and the way forward for them. Mental preparation and education of the couple is the cornerstone of successful fertility treatment. Patience and Trust are needed in abundance and this is only possible if the patients feel confident in the doctor and the clinic. At the Walking Egg Medical Centre, we boast of an internationally trained Fertility Counsellor who gives adequate time for patients to understand the issues.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is the placing of sperm into a woman’s uterus when she is ovulating. This procedure is used for couples with unexplained infertility, minimal male factor infertility, and women with cervical mucus problems.
Injection of washed prepared sperms into the uterine cavity through a fine catheter during peri-ovulatory phase in a natural or stimulated cycle.
IVF: In vitro fertilization (IVF)
IVF is a process by which eggs are fertilized in the laboratory and transferred into the uterus as embryos a few days later. IVF was originally designed for women with absent, blocked or severely damaged fallopian tubes where natural concept was unlikely to occur. Now, other fertility problems such as Unexplained Infertility, Endometriosis, Male Factor Infertility, Cervical Mucus Hostility and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) are also helped by IVF. IVF is an integral part of ICSI and egg Sharing/ Donation Programs.
Indications for IVF Treatment:
1) Fallopian tube damage/tubal factor/tubal ligation.
2) Male factor infertility.
4) Advanced age /Low ovarian reserve
5) Unexplained infertility.
6) Genetic abnormalities.
ICSI: Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
ICSI differs from conventional in vitro fertilization (IVF) in that the embryologist selects a single sperm to be injected directly into an egg, instead of fertilization taking place in a dish where many sperms are placed near an egg.
SURROGACY: In situations where a couple or woman needs another woman to carry a pregnancy for them due to various reasons, the Walking Egg Medical Centre is the right place to be. Surrogates are also welcome.
SPERM & EGG DONATION: We are here to assist couples and individuals who require sperm and egg donation throughout the journey. Male and female donors are also welcome.
