Infertility is becoming an epidemic for young Indians. More and more young couples are seeking treatment for infertility. Infertility is a medical condition with high prevalence affecting nearly 10 to 15% of married couples in India.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that one in every 6 couples in developing nations is affected by infertility. India has nearly 27.5 million infertile couples, and out of which only 1% of the couple come forward to get themselves treated. This is primarily because of the low awareness levels and the myth that the success rate in IVF/Fertility treatment is very low.
