Should I delay IVF treatment till I get the COVID-19 vaccine? A doctor answers IVF-related fears amidst the pandemic

IVF expert “Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour” highlights the importance of observing safety precautions and getting vaccinated when you’re planning to go for IVF amidst Covid-19.

What we thought was the end was just the beginning. The deadly second wave of Covid which affected people more from the reproductive age group reaffirms that we will need to continue to live in a COVID-19 environment for the foreseeable future. As per ASRM (American Society of Reproductive Medicine), there is a need to ensure that essential medical care, including reproductive care, is provided while maximizing safety.

An essential protective tool in the pandemic is the Covid19 vaccine. The available options may not be 100 percent effective yet they are efficacious in reducing the severity of the disease and even preventing it.

There is no need to delay getting pregnant after the Covid 19 vaccination. So, you can go for IVF treatment immediately after the Covid-19 vaccination. It does not have any impact on fertility treatment. As per recent Government of India Guidelines, vaccines are safe even during pregnancy and in the pre-pregnancy period.

We know that the increasing age of the couples and increasing duration of infertility have a negative impact on the success rates of IVF treatment. So, you should follow all the safety precautions and start your IVF treatment. Always wear a mask, keep social distance, frequently wash your hands and sanities surfaces and objects like your mobile phone and bags.

IVF treatment involves a minor surgical procedure for egg retrieval. So, if you have been infected with Covid-19, you can start IVF treatment after 4 weeks if you were asymptomatic or only had mild non-respiratory symptoms. If you had respiratory symptoms like cough or breathlessness but did not need hospitalization then wait for 6 weeks at least? If you were hospitalized for Covid-19 infection then please wait for 8 to 10 weeks. If you have diabetes or are immunocompromised then wait for 8 to 10 weeks before starting IVF treatment. If you were admitted to an ICU due to Covid-19 infection then please wait for 12 weeks after recovery before you start IVF treatment.

Dr. Nupur Garg Answer to RJ (104 FM) about Infertility Issue

रेडियो जॉकी: जिनके साथ हम आईवीएफ के बारे में बात कर रहे हैं और, डॉक्टर आजकल इनफर्टिलिटी के मामले क्यों इतने बढ़ रहे हैं?

डॉ नुपुर: ये सही है की आजकल इनफर्टिलिटी की समस्या बहुत बढ़ गई है और इसके कुछ प्रमुख कारण हैं:

बढ़ती उम्र, पर्यावरण और बदलती जीवन शैली… जैसा कि हम सब देख रहे हैं आज कल महिला या पुरुष दोनो में ही शादी की उम्र बढ़ गई है और बढ़ती उम्र से अण्डों या शुक्राणु दोनो की गुणवत्ता में कमी आती है और प्रजनन क्षमता कमजोर होती है। 35 साल की उम्र के बाद महिलाओं में ये कमी बहुत तेजी से होती है और पुरुषो में 40 की उम्र के बाद।

दुसरा बहुत प्रमुख कारण जो देखा गया है वो है पर्यावरण। पर्यावरणन कारणों में खानपान में बढ़ती परिंशन और पेस्टिसाइड्स की मात्रा हमारे प्रजनन तंत्र पर बहुत ही गहरा प्रभाव डाल सकती है।

उसी तरह से बदलती जीवन शैली जैसे कि एक्सरसाइज न करना, नींद पूरी न होना, खराब पोषण, धूम्रपान और अत्यधिक शराब का सेवन, ये सभी प्रजनन क्षमता को कमजोर बनाता है और उस पर दुष्प्रभाव डालता है।

 

रेडियो जॉकी : डॉक्टर इनफर्टाइल कपल्स के लिए क्या ट्रीटमेंट ऑप्शंस अवेलेबल हैं?

डॉ नुपुर: इनफर्टिलिटी के उपचार से पहले उसका कारण जानना बहुत जरूरी होता है, क्योंकि उसी के अनुसार ट्रीटमेंट प्लान किया जाता है, कुछ मरीजों में हार्मोनल इम्बैलेंसेस होते हैं, जिस वजह से महिलाओं में ओव्यूलेशन में डिस्टर्बेंस होता है और पुरुषों में शुक्राणु की कमी हो सकती है, इसका इलाज दवाइयों द्वारा किया जाता है और जीवन शैली में परिवर्तन की सलाह दी जाती है- जैसे की रेगुलर एक्सरसाइज करना, अत्यधिक वजन है तो वजन कम करना, पौष्टिक आहार लेना; इन सभी चेंजेस से इम्प्रूवमेंट होता है और ज़्यादातर मरीज़ प्रेगनेंट होने में सफल होते हैं। जिन मरीजों में अन्य समस्याएं पाई जाती हैं या जिन मरीजों में जीवनशैली के परिवर्तन के बावजूद भी प्रेगनेंसी में सफलता नहीं मिलती है, ऐसे मरीजों में एडवांस तकनीक जैसी की आईयूआई या आईवीएफ का इस्तमाल उपचार के लिए किया है।
