If you have been trying to conceive for six months or more, it's time to consider seeking advice from a fertility specialist. We offer a range of fertility treatments to help you fulfil your dream of starting a family.
All you would need is an initial consultation, followed by advice for treatment such as ovulation induction. Or you may need to consider more advanced techniques, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilisation (IVF).
You will meet Dr. Shiuli Mukherjee, MD, MRCOG and FNB at your first consultation. She will check through USG at first visit and will advise necessary investigations if required and will guide you for the best treatment you need for a quick conception.
Relevant tests for infertility in females and males are carried out accordingly.
Different types of fertility preserving surgeries are done to investigate and treat the various conditions associated with infertility.
Different medicines are used to stimulate the development and release of eggs.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman's uterus to facilitate fertilization.
In In vitro fertilisation (IVF), egg and sperm are combined in the laboratory, allowing fertilisation to occur and embryos to develop before being transferred to the woman’s uterus.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a technique used as part of the IVF process that involves the injection of a single sperm into an egg to enhance better fertilization.
Laser hatching helps for better implantation after blastocyst culture and in frozen embryo transfer which increases the implantation rate.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), is used to test embryos for specific genetic or chromosomal abnormalities specially in women with recurrent miscarriage.

For some women, carrying her own baby through pregnancy is impossible and using a surrogate is her only hope of having a child. Find out more about our surrogacy program.
Available techniques to help protect a woman’s or man’s future fertility, including freezing eggs and sperm.

We are currently involved in a number of research projects mainly related to endometrial receptivity and recurrent miscarriage and fertility preservation.
Mobile IVF is a complete new kid in the block. It’s an natural IVF procedure where the embryo develops inside vagina of the lady and the would be mother gets the feel of natural conception.
In a Colombian study, the reproductive unit has yielded 40%, 31.2%, and 24% of clinical pregnancy, live birth, and single live birth rates per cycle, respectively. Our results suggest that this mobile IVF procedure is an effective alternative treatment option in assisted reproduction where couple dares to venture IVF because of cost implication and painful injections.
Mobile natural IVF shows comparable results to those reported for existing IVF techniques. It is being reported in a study made in France, where over 800 cycles have been done and published worldwide which showed a clinical pregnancy rate of 19.6%.
In India the only work has been started in Kolkata under Dr.Shiuli Mukherjee. This procedure consists of fertilization of oocyte(s) and early embryo development in the cell placed into the maternal vaginal cavity for incubation. The vaginal cavity replaces the complex in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratory.
Dr. Mukherjee says that this cell devise allows the treatment of a new population of infertile couples who could not benefit from IVF due to cost and availability. The participation of the patient in the process of fertilization and early embryo development is a psychological benefit that creates a high level of acceptance of mobile natural IVF.
A miracle result had been found in surrogacy services too where the commissioning mother carries the baby for 3 days at her vagina and later the baby is transported to the uterus of surrogate lady who carries it for next 9 months till term. In this way this service can benefit a good number of couple who completely had lost hope of parenting a child.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome hampers fertility through improper egg formation and hormonal mismatch.
Women who have had obesity with PCOS are at an increased risk of fertilization failure due to poor quality of eggs. They often need to go for embryo freezing and frozen transfer later on, a Swedish study has found.
Researchers from the Kolkata under Dr.Shiuli Mukherjee and at Karolina carried out a joint study in a population based cohort to examine the association between metabolic syndrome and PCOS which was published in Indian Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 2010. It shows women with PCOS with metabolic syndrome suffers from ovulational disorders.
The continuum of overweight and PCOS is now the most common complication leading to infertility especially in some developing countries like India. In the United Kingdom, 33% of pregnant women are overweight or obese.1 In the United States, 12%2 to 38%3 of PCOS women are overweight and 11%4 to 40%3 are obese.
In a study of Comparative evaluation of pregnancy outcome in PCOS additional dose of gonadotrophin have shown good egg formation with high pregnancy rate. Working on a population of 2067 cycles they have shown significant improvement of pregnancy rate in gonadotrophin group as told by Dr.Shiuli Mukherjee who conducted the study. Such types of stimulation also reduce the hyperstimulation rate in IVF cycles. Sporadic ovulation can also bring natural conception for them.

Special Test for Infertile Men Could Reduce Need for Surgery
In current years researchers have developed non-surgical tests that could be used to tell whether men with zero sperm counts might be able to father children via IVF.
Non-obstructive infertility refers to the failure of sperm to develop properly. In this case retrieving sperm for use in IVF is very difficult, and often impossible. But when the cause is obstruction in a man’s reproductive system, sperm retrieval is much easier.
In a recent press meet Dr.S. Mukherjee mentioned: 'You can avoid biopsies in many of the men. And directly can put for IVF ICSI cycles after the score assessment. Particularly for those lots of men, who just want to know whether their options remain'.
In other study, lead by Dr Andrei Drabovich, at Canada told the press that the pair of proteins - ECM1 and TEX101 were selected from 2,000 candidate biomarkers. Their predictive value was tested first in 30 patients, then on an additional 119. The researchers were able to distinguish obstructive from non-obstructive infertility every time, although the test could not be considered 100 percent accurate.
Speaking to BBC News, Dr Allan Pacey, senior lecturer in andrology at the University of Sheffield and chair of the British Fertility Society, said the study was 'very encouraging indeed'.
'It could help men make better decisions, avoid unnecessary surgical procedures and potentially help save money by not having to do surgical procedures that aren't needed'.
