The prevalence of infertility in men is increasing due to improper lifestyle, smoking, consumption of alcohol, lack of exercise, stress and other factors, Dr KD Nayyar, Senior Vice President, Indian Fertility Society (IFS), told Nation Next during his visit to Nagpur recently. Dr Nayyar was speaking on the sidelines of the installation ceremony of the IFS Vidarbha Chapter organised at Hotel Centre Point in Nagpur, wherein he was a special guest. During the ceremony, while Dr Shilpi Sud was inducted as the secretary, Dr Nishad Chimote was inducted as the joint secretary for the year 2018-2020.

Speaking further, Dr Nayyar said, At IFS, it is one of our main aim to create awareness about infertility among people. Generally, it is perceived that every time a couple has problems conceiving, it is because of the wife; that is certainly not the case. Sometimes, it is because of the wife, sometimes because of the husband and sometimes because of both of them. The mental attitude that a woman is responsible for a couple not able to conceive has to change. Women, traditionally, have suffered a lot because of this mental attitude. In many cases, women are threatened by their respective husbands that they will marry another woman if they don’t conceive.

Echoing the same sentiment, Dr Kaustubh Kulkarni, who owns the Siddhi Life IVF centre in Mumbai, said, It is wrong to blame the woman for a problem related to conceiving. It can be due to a medical problem of the man or of the couple collectively. Most of the couple, who have problems conceiving, generally get scared as they think that they are the only ones going through the problem. Speaking about this, Dr Kulkarni said, When you want to get rid of a wisdom tooth, you go to a dentist, when you have a fractured bone, you go to an orthopedic, we as IVF specialists treat people when they have problems conceiving due to infertility, which is really a very common phenomenon. In 1983, 2 out of 10 couples had problems conceiving. If you talk about today, one in six couples will have problem having a baby.

But is the situation really that bad How treatable is infertility? Well, it is treatable most of the times as per Dr Kulkarni. He said, Infertility is treatable most of the times, provided the couple approaches the doctor on time. There is a right time for everything. If a lady approaches me at the age of 40 with a problem having a baby, it’s going to be hard to treat her. For women in India, the right age for having a baby is before the age of 35. If you’re dealing with infertility post 35, you might be dealing with it permanently. Having said that, the earlier a couple has a baby, it is better!
