Egg quality also plays a role in infertility in many women.

Hi I am 32 years old and planning for the baby since two years. But, couldn’t able to become pregnant. I have consulted a gynecologist and after performing all the infertility tests, she told me that I have blocked fallopian tubes. I want to ask few questions from you. Is IVF is the only option left with me? What are the risk factors associated with IVF?

Hi I am trying to conceive and i have some queries regarding the planning. Currently i am on birth control pills for the last 3 years after i had one abortion. The thing is that, now that i am trying to conceive, should i sop using the pills immediately. Will this solve the purpose? Is there any side affect on immediately planning after stopping the pill? Should we be using contraceptives? I do not want any complications later, hence your suggestions are very important for me. I have spoken to the doctor and they are saying to hold on for one month until i get my normal periods. Is that correct? However i am having immense abdominal pain these days. Pls let me know how to proceed with this.

Hello Everyone, I am here to know about minimum sperm count to perform an ICSI. My hubby MSC results 0.4 million sperm/ml and recommend us to go for ICSI due to severe oligospermia. My question is whether there is a minimum sperm count to perform an ICSI, and if we can include ourselves there. Likewise, the semen analysis also shows a high percentage of abnormal sperm morphology… therefore, do we have to find that percentage from the MSC results? Or in the MSC those sperm have already been ruled out? Thanks!

Hi I'm 29 years old and I have had more than 4 miscarriages. My doctor has ran many tests and has found nothing wrong with me. My last miscarriage was 3 years ago and I haven't been able to get pregnant since than. My doctor has referred me to a fertility specialist but I can't afford it. I don't know what else to do.
