IVF India :-)

Am very busy trying to juggle things to settle down back to the India Grind.My pace of life is hundred times more and so is the rate of heart beat what used to be in Australia.But still I felt like writing this piece.It solves two purposes - Tells my blog readers of my upgraded skills and willingness to help them in infrtility treatment (not necessarily IVF).It doesn't mean that if I can Perform IVF now,all my patients have to have IVF only as treatment and also majority of subfertile couples are treated with simple helps like life style modifications,timed intercourse and help with ovulation.

Second and other important reason why I am writing it is my personal experience with Infertility treatment in India or for that matter world over.It has been the niche Sub specialisation which the people who have learnt it aren't willing to pass on the skills to others.It gives the IVF a mystical Aura.I have been a Lucky Girl and always blessed in life with teachers who took pride in teaching.My Prof a big name in IVF (I don't wish to misuse his name for my advertisement but at the same I hold him in so much regard I can't help but to mention him again and again) made it look all so simple scientific and logical procedure,that I am shocked that how the already existing 'infertility specialists 'make it sound like a rocket Science.OHSS,a deadly complication of Gonadotrophin happens when you pump the Lady with indiscriminate doses not realising the basis of starting  a particular dose in a lady......but that's why you need good teachers who can train you with the reasoning.

Second procedure Picking up the Ovum under Ultrasound Guidance-  of course not as complex as performing a Vaginal Hysterectomy.Much simpler.

Third is ET transfer.Very important step but it is not more complex than a pap smear,just needs some gentleness.

And so much of mystery ???

Paradox of the situation is many Unrecognized substandard IVF centres all over the India.Everyone trying to self learn as those who perhaps know the science better are not willing to teach it.

It is a Market.It is a business. Competition like any other Market.But then we doctors -are we only traders ???Is Money the only driving force?

And this is what I genuinely believe.It isn't a 'digital marketing' tactics.
