Our success journey from lots of infertility stress to the successful story is not too different from other infertile couples. Dr. Malpani and his team proved to be a strong blessing in our life who not only gave meaning to our life but helped us overcome from lots of stress of infertility.
We got married in year 2008. Life was so smooth, we were least bothered about parenthood in the initial years. But also we didn’t do any planning as we were open for parenthood also. My wife never took any contraceptive pills during the period. After a time span of 2.5 years a thought of entering into a new life of responsibility arose. Thus we consulted a doctor in the nearby city from our hometown. Almost all the reports of my wife were normal. Doctor found slight hormonal imbalances in her reports. We were not too much worried with reports. But the pressure started mounting up when there was no sign of conceiving for more years.
Simultaneously, there was a misconception in my mind as I was treated for hypospadias in my age of 12 . I had major surgeries, and also was having urethral dilatations till the age of 20 years. Although the doctor at that age confirmed my parents that I am not going to have any problem in my post married life & having children too. As I mentioned there was a misconception in my mind thus I asked my wife’s gynec to mention entire tests along with my wife’s test. She mentioned a basic semen analysis test to me. That day was the worst day of my life. It was stunning to see that my sperm count was zero i.e. azoospermia, but my wife’s reports were normal. My mind was not allowing me to accept the reports of semen analysis. Then with doctor’s consultation I had a FNAC test to make sure whether the tract is blocked or if there are sperms in the testicles or not. In my reports there was normal sperm production in the testes which meant that the tract was blocked. The doctor referred me to Medanta for Vaso-epididymal anastomosis surgery to open the tract so that we could have child naturally. After wasting one more year finally we decided to have surgery in Fortis Hospital far from my hometown. Also, we decided to freeze the sperms extracted during surgery but this was again a strong setback to our thoughts. The surgery was unsuccessful & no sperms were frozen. The doctor told my wife that they found very few sperm and these had defective heads and tails, which is why they could not be frozen. She advised us to use donor sperms instead.
Our hope of parenthood was completely shattered. We both were not at all ready to use donor sperm. My wife was completely in depression n tears. The entire treatment procedure for me & my wife was very tough as I belong to a orthodox family with lots of irritating advices. Travelling all the time to different places for doctor’s examination was very stressful. We had to keep on lying to everyone with new reasons for why we did not have a baby.
Meantime I had lots of homeopathic & ayurvedic treatments with the hope that the quality of sperm would improve. Then one of my family doctor suggested us to visit Dr. Malpani once. After making up our mind we went to Dr. Malpani clinic in August 2014. It was a great feeling at the first meeting with Dr. Aniruddha Malpani. We have never been so comfortable with any of the doctors throughout our treatment. Dr. Malpani impressed us in the very first meeting with his expertise and encouraged us to be calm and face the situation as it comes. He explained the procedure in a convincing manner and cleared all our doubts. He was very sure that we would not require to use donor sperms. His confidence with TESA treatment touched our hearts.
Finally, with lots of courage we planned to move for treatment in February 2015. When i was admitted for sperm extraction, still that Fortis report polluted my brain as to whether the doctor will get healthy sperm or not. When the doctor came & told us that they have extracted lot of sperms from my testes and 11 eggs from my wife, we had a relaxed sleep that night.
Now we have been blessed with a sweet little baby girl on 28th October 2015 and all that has happened because of motivation and courage provided by Dr Malpani and his team. Both of us heartily want to thank him for making our dream come true.
Thank you ……..
