Parents in Gujarat's Surat city are ecstatic over the success of medical treatments like IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection of eggs (ICSI) and In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) which has given them freedom from infertility.
The event was organised by the 21st Century Hospital and Test Tube Baby Center on Sunday. The center started in 2007 and has 450 test tube babies and 300 IUI babies to its credit.
"Today we are celebrating freedom from infertility. Parents who do not have their babies, we are making those people aware that after treatment they can have their own child. Treatments like IUI (Intrauterine Insemination), Endoscopy, and test-tube babies are there to help them out. They may fail once or twice but they will surely get the results," said Purnima Nadkarni, gynaecologist and infertility specialist.
Nadkarni added that the programme was conducted to guide people and make them aware that fertility treatments are not harmful.
Parents present at the event were all satisfied with the treatments, with which they were able to have their own babies.
"It was almost two years of completion of my marriage but I was very depressed that I wasn't having my own baby. So our relatives gave us the address of the hospital and after one month of treatment I was pregnant," said Sonal, a parent.
Nadkarni said that women whose veins have been blocked due to any kind of infection, or are facing problems like endometriosis, anovulation et cetera, need to go in for fertility treatments. She added that the treatments were also there for men with low sperm counts.
