The department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Metro Hospital cares and supports women at each stage of life from puberty to menopause. We at Metro Hospital offer complete evaluation, assessment of our patients. We are focusing on preconception care, high risk pregnancy, general gynecology and infertility treatment. Our department is committed to constantly upgrading the services and provide quality care to our patients. We are a dedicated and enthusiastic team of doctors with a wide range of experience to provide excellent care.
Some patients spontaneously achieve pregnancy but others at some stage experience difficulty in achieving conception and these patients need some kind of assistance in getting pregnant. It is estimated that out 100 couple with female partner's age less than 35 years, approx 80-85% will achieve pregnancy within the first year of unprotected intercourse, 90% will conceive within 18 months and about 95% will conceive within two years. The remaining 5% rarely achieve pregnancy without some form of assistance.
Infertility may be defined as an inability to achieve pregnancy within 1 year of having unprotected intercourse. Women who are more than 35 years should consult an expert after 6 months of contraceptive free sexual intercourse when it has not resulted in pregnancy. This difference in the time limit is owing to the declining egg quality with increasing age. In some couples the fertility is impaired to some extent but not completely, these patients may conceive in 3rd year or subsequently without any assistance as there is a delay these patients are called sub fertile. While, sterility is an absolute state of inability to conceive.
The cause of infertility could be in either of the partners (Male factor-35%, Female factor-40%) or in 10-15% both partners may be infertile or sub fertile. sometimes each could be individually fertile but as a couple may need assistance to achieve pregnancy the causes could be immunological or genetic, this is called Combined infertility. While in about 10%, the fertility evaluation show no abnormality, these patients are likely to have problems which are not diagnosed by current available investigations, this is termed unexplained infertility.

Pregnancy is a time when multiple emotions play into a womans life, from the joy of being a mother to the fear of going through the childbirth. Pregnancy, if uneventful, is a time of almost pleasure a memorable experience for a woman but any complication, if left unattended can ruin the celebrations.
Following case is an example, her how a complications if handled at right time in right hands can work wonder for the patient & the family.
Mrs. Xyz, 28 yrs female came to our OPD at 7-1/2 months pregnancy. This was her first pregnancy. On routine examination, we found that her blood pressure was very high in the range of 200/120 mm of hg. She was having swelling all over the body & her urine examination showed significant leakage of protein from the body. This was an ominous sign suggestive of negative effect of high blood pressure on the baby & mother. This condition is known as pre-eclampsia. The severity of the disease was so much so, that babys growth retardation set in & the fetus was grossly smaller then the corresponding gestational age. This was an emergency, which if not dealt immediately can lead to fetal demise.
The mother was admitted immediately& series of tests were conducted to evaluate the situation. Detailed Doppler studies showed significant reduction in the blood supply to baby in form of severe utero placental insufficiency.
Despite best of effects by team of physicians, the BP could not be controlled as is usual happening in this condition. After discussion with the family members decision for emergency caesarean was taken to save mother and child.
A 950 Gms beautiful female baby was delivered. As the baby was very low birth weight & there were sign of distress due to compromised blood flow, she required immediate resuscitation.
Baby was kept in well equipped, state of art Neonatal ICU of the Metro Heart Institute with Multispecialty. Baby was put on ventilator as her lung maturity was not adequate. Inj. Surfactant was administered, which is a highly specialized and advanced form of treatment for lung immaturely in preterm babies known as Hyaline membrane disease.
An array of complication, which is associated with such small, babies happened, they were dealt by a team of predicetrician very efficiently.
Few such complications like Necrotizing enterocolites and neonatal jaundice etc. are serious condition, where you have to anticipate & do the corrective action simultaneously .Maintaining nutrition of these babies are again a big challenge, as their organs & gut are not fully developed. Baby was maintained on parenteral nutrition & later on mothers milk was gradually introduced.
Due to tireless effects & precise decision making of our pediatrician & dedicated staff, now the baby is 1700gms & has started accepting feed orally.
Very soon, the baby will be discharged from the Nursery.
