What are the common concerns of couples who are planning to conceive?
Changing lifestyles and a career-centric approach dictates much of our choices, options and preferences in life. In that context, child-bearing and pregnancy has also come to bear the brunt of new life choices. Nowadays, couples and single women often consider starting a family at a later stage in life – when they are more stable financially. While this contradicts the biological clock that decreases fertility with age, Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) like IVF step in as an option for these couples.
Contrary to non-medical opinion, IVF turns out to be safer option for couples looking to conceive. The methodology, is clear and is vouched for by expert obstetricians and doctors. According to Dr Gautam Allahbadia, a Mumbai-based IVF specialist, ARTs will now be more invariably linked to reproductionin the years to come. “Several couples and single women make a deliberate choice to conceive through IVF, while others opt for the procedure owing to fertility issues,” he says.
