Female infertility treatment in Firozpur mainly depends on the cause of infertility and the type of infertility. Some of the treatments include infertility drugs, laparoscopic procedures to correct the vital organs like the Fallopian tubes among others.
- Blocked Fallopian tubes in women
The Fallopian tubes are a vital part of the female reproductive system since that is where fertilization occurs, after which the fertilized egg slopes down to the uterus for implantation. Due to adhesions among other factors, some women have found themselves with blocked Fallopian tubes leading to infertility.
The blocked Fallopian tubes can be corrected by surgical means where a surgeon removes any blockage to allow fertilization to occur. Blocked Fallopian Tubes Treatment in Firozpur is mainly performed in the following ways;

IVF Treatment at Dr. Sumita Sofat Hospital
The In Vitro Fertilization treatment (IVF) is an advanced procedure where the retrieved eggs from a woman are combined with the sperms in the petri dish to allow fertilization to occur after which the cultured embryo is transferred back to the woman’s womb for development. The IVF Treatment in Firozpur involves a series of protocols and practices, tests, and procedures to make the treatment successful.
The IVF procedure.
Ovarian Stimulation- this can also be described as a hormonal therapy a step where a woman undergoes hormonal injections for follicular development in the ovaries. She is monitored by the fertility expert as the eggs develop and once they develop, a trigger shot is administered before the eggs are retrieved.
A number of mature eggs must be extracted from the woman which is mostly about 9 to 15. These eggs will again be kept for a few hours to mature effectively after which the best are selected for the IVF procedure.
The male partner will have to provide a sperm sample through masturbation if not by surgical means. In case both aren’t possible, donor sperms are used.
The best eggs will be combined with the sperms and once fertilization occurs, the embryo is left for cell division to occur. A number of embryos will undergo screening for any genetic disorder or defect.
The best embryos, about two, will be transferred to the woman’s uterus to develop for 9 months. The embryo is introduced into the uterus via the vagina with the help of a catheter.
Pregnancy tests will be conducted within two weeks for the intended conception.
IUI Treatment (Intrauterine Insemination)
It is a generally an ART treatment where the male’s sperm/donor sperms are washed and prepared in the laboratory after which it is introduced into a woman’s uterus via her vagina. The IUI process is completely painless and perhaps the cheapest ART treatment.
During the IUI treatment in Firozpur, the fastest sperm is separated from the motionless sperms and brought near the Fallopian tubes where they can easily meet the egg for fertilization to occur.
Situations, where IUI treatment can be used include;
- Ejaculation dysfunction
- Low sperm count, low sperm survival, and poor motility
- Unexplained infertility
- Cervical factors
The success rate of a single IUI treatment cycle ranges from 17 to 20%, depending on the age of the couple and the infertility nature.
What happens before the insemination step
Prior to insemination, which means the introduction of a sperm into the female uterus, the sperms are washed in the laboratory. Washing of the sperms is intended to remove any bacteria, debris, and pus cells.
The woman’s ovaries must also undergo stimulation and clomiphene citrate tablets or Gonadotropins are used to bring about follicular development in the ovaries. The woman is continuously monitored through an ultrasound and once the eggs are ready, an HCG trigger is given and they are then retrieved.
ICSI Treatment (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection)
In this treatment, a single sperm is injected into the cytoplasm of the egg. The ICSI treatment in Firozpur is mostly used in cases of;
- Poor sperm motility
- Low sperm count
- Unexplained infertility
- Obstructive azoospermia
The Procedure of ICSI
The procedure of ICSI begins with ovarian stimulation, a process where fertility drugs are given to a woman for her ovaries to produce multiple and viable eggs.
The male sperm will be retrieved surgically in case it is required. The eggs will also be retrieved through a laparoscopic procedure intended to reach the ovaries in a minimally invasive nature. This is done under local anesthesia.
The retrieved sperms and the eggs after preparation in the laboratory, they will be combined in a petri dish to result in an embryo which is transferred to the woman’s uterus for development.
Solutions to Male Infertility
As male infertility factors normally centre around sperm issues, a number of treatments and procedures are performed at our advanced infertility centre to help a man conceive. These include surgical procedures aimed at retrieving sperms;
Normally, the sperm may be attained through masturbation and then combined with the egg in the laboratory. The presence of extreme male infertility characterized by ejaculation dysfunction, sperm obstruction among others, PESA is performed.
PESA (percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration) is a procedure where the sperm are extracted from the epididymis or testes using a fine needle and under local anesthesia. After sperm preparation, it will be used for IUI, ISCI, IVF or preserved. The PESA Infertility Treatment in Firozpur requires extra expertise from sperm retrieval to the actual IVF procedure.
Fully known as Testicular Sperm Aspiration, TESA is performed in case the epididymis doesn’t contain any sperm due to impaired sperm production. TESA Infertility Treatment in Firozpur is also a surgical procedure aimed at achieving the intended father’s sperm rather than the donor sperms.
The Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE) is also a procedure of retrieving sperms, but requires a surgical biopsy of the testis. The TESE Infertility Treatment in Firozpur is mainly conducted for ICSI treatment.
The Micro-epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA) is comprehensive and the most invasive surgical sperm retrieval procedure of them all. The MESA Infertility Treatment in Firozpur is performed under local anesthesia and involves creating a path or cutting the scrotum to obtain the sperms. The wound will then be stitched and one has to take the postoperative treatment seriously.
When to Consider PESA/TESA/MESA?
Couples who desire to use their own sperms during the ICSI, IUI, or IVF treatment can opt for the above-mentioned procedures. The procedures are performed after a complete evaluation from the fertility expert and the underlying cause of infertility speculated.
In case of Azoospermia treatment in Firozpur, TESE has helped couples attain sperms to father their own babies and this is mostly in the case of non-mosaic Klinefelter’s syndrome.

Surrogacy as the last infertility resort
Surrogacy is an available alternative to infertility in the current era. There are various types of surrogacy one of which include gestational surrogacy.
Gestational surrogacy is the highly demanded type of surrogacy, a procedure where there is no biological connection to the surrogate; a woman who carries the intended couple’s baby for 9 months.
Traditional surrogacy is a type where a genetic bond is created with the surrogate since she acts as the egg donor. This is currently foregone by infertile couples with the fact that they feel more secure with the gestational type of surrogacy.

The different infertility treatments are undergoing a drastic change due to the technological advancement and intense studies carried out by the fertility experts. Some of the procedures intended at increasing the treatment success rate include;
- Laser Assisted Hatching
The laser assisted hatching procedure is a basically a procedure where a gap is created in the zona pellucida of an oocyte. A laser beam of light is used to strike the shell for about two times until when the gap is created.
The laser assisted hatching procedure is aimed at increasing the success rate of the IVF treatment, though this step may require extra charges.
This is one of the most precise IVF practices, though, requires extreme expertise and experience to avoid damaging the embryo after which it is transferred back to the woman’s uterus. The Laser Assisted Hatching in Firozpur is completely accessible and open to all couples after a crucial evaluation of the embryo.
The cryopreservation procedure is an advanced practice in the IVF sector where different biological organs, cells, tissue, organelles, among others, are excellently preserved from damage and environmental forces by freezing or cooling them at very low temperature them. Cryopreservation in Firozpur is commonly done with the help of liquid nitrogen and solid carbon dioxide.
