The Most Precious BABY

Never give up…… is the lesson I have learnt all my life……at an early age we were taught in school……repeatedly engrained as we grew up by all those around us….parents, teachers, friends et al.

Infertility treatment

The story of Aziz and Nilufar is one such story. Craving to hold a little baby in their arms whom they could call their own, but unable to have one always troubled them. Disappointed after consulting numerous doctors in their own country, they got to know about our IVF success stories through a friend. After the initial interaction I found out that the problem was with Aziz and not with Nilufar. He suffered from Azoospermia – which meant his semen did not contain measurable level of sperm. However there was hope to do a trial TESA to see if sperms could be aspirated from the testicles directly.

This was a case of typical male infertility.Fortunately the result of the trial TESA was favourable. This gave us the initial boost required to proceed with treatment for Nilufar.

Proceeding with the routine investigations of blood tests, diagnostic hysteroscopy etc. The final days arrived for Ovum pick up (OPU) and Embryo Transfer (ET). Everything went off well and smoothly. Aziz and Nilufar flew back to their home country and waited till the BETA HCG result arrived…..it was negative. Both were crestfallen and disappointed…..even more because they had no frozen embryos and the entire process would have to be repeated including TESA (already done twice).

A few months later they decided to try again and landed in India. This time too everything went well, in fact better than the previous time because the number of embryos fertilised was much higher leaving the option of freezing the balance embryos. The big day arrived…..Embryo Transfer (ET). Three healthy embryos were transferred and this time Aziz decided to stay on , get the BETA HCG test done and not fly back immediately. Tears of joy welled up in everyone’s eyes as we read the report which said Nilufar was pregnant and that the IVF cycle had been successful. A repeat test 48 hours later to reconfirm was even more encouraging yet a little disturbing. The value had risen very high indicating Nilufar was pregnant with triplets – a condition very risky for her.

We advised them for reduction ….. but Aziz was adamant to retain all three. Equipped with all advice instructions and medicines, they flew back. Months passed and we did not hear from them. Anxious as we were about Nilufar’s progress…..we did not hear anything when one fine day a distraught Aziz’s brother called to say Nilufar had to get all three aborted through C-section in the 5th month of pregnancy due to complications and threat of life to Nilufar.

Persistent and adamant as Aziz was, a year later he decided to come again especially since there were a fair number of frozen embryos. This was his third attempt at becoming a dad. However, this was not to be and the third cycle failed. A few months passed and the heart strings tugged again…Aziz arrived with Nilufar. This time he had put everything at stake and was desperate and so were we for a positive outcome, especially since the balance count of frozen embryos stood at four. This time things were difficult and many precautions were required, keeping in mind the previous history. The cycle had to be prolonged stretching to almost two months. Not taking any chances the doctors decided to do a sequential transfer of two embryos followed by blastocyst transfer. It paid off…….the BETA HCG result was positive again. Destiny and luck had favoured them. As we repeated the BETA HCG , apprehensions rose again since this time too Nilufar was pregnant with triplets.

This time Aziz had no choice but to get the reduction done. For this they had to stay on longer and by now Nilufar was already homesick and longed to be with her family. Aziz decided to take her home only to return few weeks later for the reduction. After much apprehension and an anxious phase it was finally done. Not taking any chances, Nilufar was persuaded to stay back for some time so that she could be monitored closely. After a few weeks when all seemed to be safe and less risky, they headed back to Uzbekistan again…..

All was quiet for a few months till my thoughts reached out wanting to hear some good news which I did. Nilufar had delivered twins a boy and a girl. Unfortunately the boy did not survive due to birth complications….however “the precious little baby” lives on and has given her parents ample joy along with a reason for us to celebrate too.tours.com/blog/motherly-love-knows-no-boundaries/” target=”_blank”>IVF success stories
