What is Infertility?
Infertility is the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse or the inability to carry a pregnancy to term. This definition is reduced to six months for women over 35, those with a history of painful periods, irregular cycles, pelvic inflammatory disease and miscarriages, and couples who know that the male partner has a low sperm count.
Is infertility primarily a women’s health issue?
Not at all. For almost half of infertile couples, the cause is related to the male partner (either alone or in addition to a female factor). When couples have fertility concerns, we recommend that both the male and female partner have full consultations in order to determine the most effective treatment approach.
What kinds of tests can I expect if I come in for a consultation?
Normally we perform three tests when a couple schedules an initial consultation. For the female partner a blood test can determine whether hormones are in the correct balance and an examination of the pelvic cavity can determine whether there are any physical impediments to fertility. For the male partner, a semen analysis can show whether there are issues with sperm. We will also review each partners medical, surgical and family history and answer any questions you may have.
What treatments are available?
There are a wide range of treatments available for infertility, depending on the cause or causes. These include medications, surgery to correct physical blockages and advanced therapies like in vitro fertilization. Please see the How We Can Help section for detailed information or contact IRIMC for answers to your specific questions.

No. unlike the general perception, IVF procedure could start from 9000/ Rupees & could go upto a few lakhs. However what is important is a correct diagnosis & customized treatment to suit the patient’s very specific need. At our IVF centre, we go into complete details before recommending & initiating the treatment with complete transparency.
We have a active sex life. However we are still not able to conceive. What could be the reason?
Infertility has nothing to do with an active sex life. There are a lot of couples who face the same situation. The causes for Infertility could be many. A correct diagnosis with a specialist, who is able to give you adequate time & understand your situation to customize your treatment plan, is important.
