3.Infertility – A Growing Problem, The Facts and Solutions”, Dr Sudipta Paul.

Cover Infertility

Infertility, the inability to have a baby, is an enormous problem in the society. It has significant psychological, marital, social and financial implications to the couple suffering from it. In societies, where people (both men and women) crave to have a son, not being able to have a baby at all has serious implications for the couple. Unfortunately, infertility has been a growing problem due to various changes in the society and life-style of people.

The single most important factor that influences fertility is the age of the woman. Preventive steps, including trying for a baby at younger age, if adopted appropriately, might reduce the incidence of infertility. A timely consultation with an Infertility Specialist would reduce the delay in receiving appropriate treatment, provide the right treatment and make the process of treatment better.

From my experience of dealing with infertile couples for last 22 years or so, including 14 years in the United Kingdom, it is apparent that there is a need to improve public awareness regarding infertility. With better awareness and understanding, the incidence of infertility might be reduced and timely appropriate management could be undertaken leading to higher success rates in having a baby.

This book aims primarily to improve Doctors’ and public awareness and understanding of the issues in relation to infertility. It includes evidence based facts and figures in infertility regarding its extent, causation, association, prevention and treatment (with success rates and complications). Numerous figures (graphs and others), tables and pictures (from author’s collection) have been included for better visual impression and easier understanding. The general readers might find some of the pictures disturbing as they might not have seen similar pictures before. Outline of treatment for the majority of common infertility problems, as per individual groups found in clinical practice, has been included as a guide, and the detailed index could be used to find the majority of infertility issues. In addition, relevant issues such as the dangers of Rubella and Chickenpox infection in pregnancy, and their prevention, reduction in neural tube defects in the babies by taking folic acid, the potential risks of vitamin A & D in early pregnancy, the need for regular Pap smears to prevent cervical cancer, general pre-pregnancy advice, risks of Letrozole (Letroz, Letoval, Oreta, Letz, Shantroz etc, banned in India now), risks of IVF (test tube baby) etc have been highlighted with a brief outline of some interesting facts about IVF.

This book would be helpful to the people involved in managing infertile couples for counselling and treatment of their patients. Doctors and Medical Students might use the information to their advantage in examinations including international ones. They might find some of the phrases used in this book such as “Five Pillars of Natural Conception”, “Seven colours” (causes of infertility) etc easier to remember. Non-medical terminologies have been used where feasible, which would be useful in counselling infertile couples and for easier understanding of the information by the general population. The infertile couples undergoing investigation and treatment would find the information useful because of better understanding of their conditions and the process of management. They could easily find the treatment options, their likely success rates and potential complications. The generic names of the medicines have been included as the use of trade names is neither appropriate nor feasible as there are hundreds of them (only some trade names of Letrozole have been used as it was relevant). The general readers would find several medical terminologies that at first might appear difficult to understand. Simplified terms of some of them have been included whenever it was appropriate or feasible. In life, however, the general readers would encounter these medical terms when they see the Doctor and wonder what these mean. Therefore, to have a clearer understanding, it would be better for them to be accustomed with those terms beforehand. The general population, young adults in particular, would find the information helpful and could use it to reduce the possibility of problems in the future by adopting appropriate life-style choices.
