In one-third of the cases, infertility is because of either female infertility factors or male infertility factors. In rest of the cases, the cause is either unknown or a combination of both male and female factors. In males, infertility is due to a couple of factors including low sperm production, abnormal sperm function, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. The cause of infertility can be difficult to diagnose, but many treatments are available. Treatment options like IUI, IVF, ICSI, surrogacy (under ART) are available depend on the underlying problems.

For 17 years, they nursed the dream of raising a family of their own. Thanks to In Vitro Fertilization technology and doctors' expertise, this life-goal of Brij Lal (68) and Safla Rani (56) was fulfilled a year ago, when they became proud parents of a baby boy. The Delhi couple got married in 1997 and discovered they were unable to conceive
after three years. They spent all their savings and even mortgaged properties, visiting
all known and unknown fertility clinics, where the first test-
tube baby was born, over the next 15 years. Nothing helped.
“We have no regrets about the long struggle and the money spent. It's a miracle that, after all these years, we could have Vairaj.“ said Lal, who retired from Air India a few years ago. His wife works with an engineering consultancy and is due for retirement in four years. While the couple and the clinic are both ecstatic over this achievement, many experts say they are concerned about the future of children born to such aged couples.“Even if they succeed to conceive, what is the guarantee that they will be able to look after the new-born? The government must look into these aspects and frame laws to regulate these practices, “said a senior doctor.
Dr Manika Khanna, who heads Gaudium IVF Centre in west Delhi where the couple underwent assertive reproductive technology, said that she screened the couple for any serious medical conditions before clearing them for the procedure. “We do not conduct IVF for aged couples who have serious medical conditions or poor socio-economic status. The couple did not fall in either category. Also, they did not even have a single child and there is no such law that bars anyone from fulfilling their desire to have one, “Khanna said.
According to the doctor, Safla Rani suffered from Polycystic Ovarian Disease due to which she could not conceive naturally. “We gave her medicines to treat the causative factors apart from hormonal injections,“ Dr Khanna said.
Safla Rani was also treated for high blood pressure and blood sugar problems. “Children born through IVF are at higher risk of genetic disease. So we waited for a year and screened the child. He is in perfect health, “Khanna said.
