Infertility still remains a hush-hush topic. But it's important to open up to get the right intervention at the right time. With tremendous advancements in the field of reproductive medicine, there are several possibilities for fertility-challenged couples to have biological children. Delaying treatment will have a negative impact on the outcome.

We aspire to help many more couples attain their parenthood dream with our tech-backed advanced treatment options. I urge couples to consult a fertility specialist if they are unable to conceive even after a year. Erratic lifestyles, pollution, lack of physical activity, and delayed parenthood have contributed to a rise in infertility. Lifestyle modifications along with personalized fertility treatments can help couples overcome infertility and achieve parenthood.

But now with so many advances, like the micro testing we introduced recently for the first time in Vizag at Oasis, we are in a position to facilitate pregnancy with cell sperm.”
