Hindustan Express – Gwalior 29th April
More than 70 consultants participated in a CME arranged by the Gwalior Obstetrics and Gynaecological Society at hotel Landmark Annexe. While welcoming everybody Dr Kusum lata Singhal said that looking at the increasing rate of female infertility, we have decided to hold our first conference about female infertility. Dr Veera Lohia, Secretary of the Gwalior Obstetrics and Gynaecological Society said that approximately 30 percent women are coming with infertility problems that generally have polycystic ovary where they face problem in producing eggs. Lifestyle diseases which used to occur in big metropolitan cities have started spreading in small cities like Gwalior. Weak protein diet, erring lifestyle and bad eating habits are the root causes of polycystic ovary cases.
Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour, Secretary of ISAR, Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction, spoke about the role of medicine Latrozole in the polycystic ovary. Apart from this, she advised about future of Surrogacy, ART guidelines and also spoke about the need to register with ICMR for treating infertility. Only 400 clinics are registered in entire India. New surrogacy rules will make next to impossible for ordinary people to avail surrogacy because only close relatives will be able to be surrogates. This is the only option and other guidelines will make success difficult for nucleus families. This might happen that for treatment of joints also there won’t be any alternative in India but people will have to travel to United States of America, Ukraine or Kenya. The other speakers of the event also addressed similar issues.
