When Shraddha* came to Jannee 3 years back, she was at the crossroad of hope and disappointment. After a couple of failed IVF cycles at various centres in the tricity, Shraddha was at the brink of giving up all hope to ever become a mother. However, her strength and Dr. Nirmal’s counselling helped her choose optimism. At Jannee, she conceived in the first IVF cycle but unfortunately the pregnancy resulted in preterm labour at 24 weeks and she lost the baby. Shraddha had an incompetent uterus and even after cervical encerclage the baby could not be saved. She was then counseled for surrogacy but that did not work in her favor as the embryos were not healthy. The treatment for surrogacy involved Shraddha’s ovarian hyper stimulation, oocyte retrieval and ICSI with her husband’s sperms. Simultaneously, a healthy surrogate was recruited through an ART Bank and was prepared to carry the baby through hormonal therapy. The resultant embryos were transferred into the surrogate’s uterus. When the first surrogacy attempt failed, everyone was disheartened but Shraddha had become even more determined to have a baby. She wanted to try surrogacy again and in November, 2019, she become mother to a beautiful, healthy baby. Surrogacy is the choice of treatment in couples where the female has a damaged or absent uterus, recurrent miscarriages, and is not in a physical condition to carry a baby. We, at Jannee, hope that surrogacy is regulated and not completely banned as it is the only chance to biological parenthood for some couples, including single parents and LGBT community.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an extremely common disorder affecting 4 to 12 percent women of reproductive age. Though patients have varied symptoms, the main symptoms of the disease are Hyperandrogenism (excessive level of male hormone) and Chronic Anovulation (absence of ovulation). PCOS may lead to infertility in many women for which we are providing best infertility treatment in Chandigarh. Early diagnosis of PCOS is important as it has been linked to an increased risk for developing several medical issues including infertility, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart diseases.
Symptoms of PCOS

Irregular Periods or No Periods at all
Multiple cysts on ovaries in a “string of pearls” pattern.
High testosterone levels cause Hirsutism (excessive hair growth), male-pattern baldness and acne.
