Chennai, 25th July 2022: We often forget the other side of the equation when it comes to infertility. Male infertility is as common as female infertility and its high time we acknowledge this fact. Though infertility in men is on the rise, very few opt for fertility evaluation due to embarrassment and social stigma. On the occasion of World IVF Day, Oasis Fertility, Chennai launched AndroLife – An exclusive male fertility clinic. Dr Aparna Vishwakiran, Senior Consultant & Fertility Specialist, Oasis Fertility, Chennai, Dr D Maheshwari, Fertility Specialist, Oasis Fertility, Chennai, and Dr C Dev Krishna, Consultant Andrologist, Oasis Fertility, Chennai graced the occasion.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Aparna Vishwa kiran, Senior Consultant & Fertility Specialist, Oasis Fertility, Chennai stated, “We are extremely glad to launch AndroLife clinic which is exclusively for men who face infertility issues. Though there is a rise in male infertility, not many men opt for fertility evaluation due to inhibition and ignorance. On this World IVF Day, we have come out with our special initiative “Infertility Knows No Gender” to emphasize the importance of fertility evaluation for men. Through this campaign, we wish to send a clear message: when a couple is unable to conceive even after a year, it is vital for both the husband and wife to consult a fertility specialist”.
Dr D Maheshwari, Fertility Specialist, Oasis Fertility, Chennai said, “Infertility doesn’t affect women alone. Infertility in men has increased due to several factors like obesity, lack of exercise, pollution, erratic lifestyle, exposure to heat and hazardous chemicals, excessive gadget use, delayed parenthood, etc. We have an array of treatment options for males and through these, we help even men with low sperm count to achieve fatherhood. Through Fertility Preservation technique, we enable male cancer patients to begin their family in the future by preserving their fertility before cancer treatment”.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr C Dev Krishna, Consultant Andrologist, Oasis Fertility, Chennai stated, “Globally, the fertility in men younger than 30 years has decreased by 15% according to research. As we understand the sensibilities when it comes to male infertility which calls for compassionate and exclusive care for men, we have set up AndroLife through which we offer all treatments pertaining to men. We are specialized in Micro-TESE which is an advanced sperm extraction procedure carried out by very few centres in the country. Through advanced technologies like MACS, P-ICSI, IMSI, Microfluidics, etc. we enable men to overcome infertility issues and achieve their parenthood dream. Instead of denying or delaying, men need to consult an andrologist at the right time”.
