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.
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 a couple have fertility concerns, we recommend that both the male and female partner have full consultations in order to determine the most effective treatment approach.
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 partner’s medical, surgical and family history and answer any questions you may have.
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.

If you are the main comforter for a patient, here I am sharing a few do’s and don’ts which you must follow:


  • Stay in contact with the patient. Be there, if possible
  • It is important to listen to her feelings and emotions. Be the passive partner and let her do the talking
  • Reassure her it was not her fault and she did everything she could do to save the baby
  • Go for a walk on the beach, offer a back massage or you can take her to the movie of her choice
  • Do acknowledge her pain even if you think you wouldn’t react that way in this situation


  • Don’t be embarrassed about making her cry. Losing the baby is what upsetting her, not what you said
  • Don’t presume there will be another pregnancy
  • Do not you keep the expectations about how long it may take her to recover since losing a baby is indeed one of the most depressing experiences
  • Often, people in grief behave inappropriately and they need your unconditional support because when she will return to normal, she will feel grateful.
  • You don’t have to keep your children away since she has to go through the process of accepting other’s children.
After a miscarriage, a woman needs physical nourishment as well. The diet you should intake – iron rich foods, fruits and vegetables, beans, nuts, plain chocolate and calcium rich foods. Now, some of the foods to avoid after a pregnancy loss – sweets, low-fiber starches, junk food, soy products and fatty milk and meats. Nonetheless, surround yourself with people who love you and pamper your soul.
Miscarriage is a devastating occurrence for any mother. There are various reasons that lead to miscarriage - chromosome problems, weakened cervix, diabetes, thyroid disorders, lifestyle, physical complications, and blood clotting disorders.
IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a fertility procedure in which eggs and sperms are combined in a lab. It is the most commonly used high-tech fertility treatment and can be done using your own eggs and your partner’s sperm.
IVF technique is used to give child to an infertile couple. It is required in these instances such as – endometriosis, abnormal cervical factor, idiopathic infertility, presence of sperm antibodies, presence of irreparably damaged fallopian tubes and tuberculosis in which tubal reconstruction is contraindicated.
These are the seven most common miscarriage symptoms which no couple should ignore:
  • Bleeding
  • Cramps
  • Pain
  • Decreased Activity of The Baby
  • Decrease in NVP
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Immunologic Disorders
The male partner has a big role to play to comfort the mother. Being sensitive and respectful to each other’s feelings keep the communication lines open. You can actually protect your partner by avoiding situations that are difficult to cope. Know about the facts and implications for the future and stay joyful. Participate in fun activities together and always remember that celebrating bits of joy would put you on the path of happiness and peaceful life.
After miscarriage, it is important to follow these gentle exercises as it helps regain strength both in the mind as well as body and also eases muscle tension.

  • Yoga: Yoga mainly helps you maintain balance between your mind, body and breath. This exercise strengthens your body while helping you to work through strong emotions.

Human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG is a hormone made by the pregnancy which can be detected in the mother’s urine or blood even if the women missed her period. It is present at each and every pregnancy as soon as the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine walls. On the other hand, hCG levels should not be used to date pregnancies as the numbers may vary from woman to woman.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is performed besides IVF treatment where a sperm is injected into each egg to assist fertilization. This injection allows for fertilization to happen when there are only a few sperm available. It is recommended for male partner who has been diagnosed with male fertility issues.

The side-effects are quite similar to pre-menstrual syndrome including – mood swings, headache, cramps and bloating. So, it’s important that you stay in touch with your doctor to avoid any such problems that crops up during the IVF treatment.

35 or younger is most appropriate age for egg donation because women’s infertility starts to decline after this age. In sperm donation, the suitable age is 45 years old. It is important to note here that less than 18 years of age no one can donate sperm or eggs. To get more information about donating, schedule a consultation and get all your queries answered quickly.
A sperm donor has no rights or responsibilities to the child. The donor is not the legal father of the child. The recipient couple is the legal parents of the child with full parental rights and responsibilities.
