Infertility affects millions of people in the reproductive age group worldwide, and impacts their families and communities. India alone has 27.5 million infertile people, including men and women. What started as a predominantly urban problem has now rapidly grown into the remaining sections. Infertility affects both men and women equally and has a diverse etiology including unexplained factors. However, environmental and lifestyle factors like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, and exposure to pollutants have been linked to lower fertility rates in both men and women. On World Women’s Day, The Indian Practitioner interviewed Dr. Meghana Nyapathi, Clinical Head and Fertility Specialist, Oasis Fertility, Bengaluru, and Dr. Sulbha Arora, Clinical Director, Nova IVF Fertility, Mumbai, for their views on infertility and its management.

Abstract


Infertility affects millions of people in the reproductive age group worldwide, and impacts their families and communities. India alone has 27.5 million infertile people, including men and women. What started as a predominantly urban problem has now rapidly grown into the remaining sections. Infertility affects both men and women equally and has a diverse etiology including unexplained factors. However, environmental and lifestyle factors like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, and exposure to pollutants have been linked to lower fertility rates in both men and women. On World Women’s Day, The Indian Practitioner interviewed Dr. Meghana Nyapathi, Clinical Head and Fertility Specialist, Oasis Fertility, Bengaluru, and Dr. Sulbha Arora, Clinical Director, Nova IVF Fertility, Mumbai, for their views on infertility and its management.
