Light At The End of the Tunnel

Treated by Dr. Bhavna Banga , Max Multi Speciality Centre, Panchsheel Park

We are a doctor couple. I have very poor sperm motility and my wife has irregular periods due to PCOS. Together we struggled to get pregnant naturally for more than 2 years, from 2016 till 2018. In 2018 when our problems were diagnosed we went for IUI. We had as many as 4 IUIs. When all of those failed we were suggested to go for IVF (and ICSI precisely). We had 4 IVF cycles and multiple embryo transfers. None worked at all. We were asked to go for some costly tests to increase the success rates. In one of the IVF cycles, not even a single embryo formed in the lab.

After multiple failures we were completely broken. Hundreds of painful injections both IM and subcutaneous, incessant bleeding after each failed transfer and the sheer despair arising out of each failed embryo transfer had reduced us to lifeless beings without any hope.

That was when we went to Dr. Bhavna Banga (Nov-Dec 2020). She came across as a very jovial, happy and friendly doctor from the very beginning. She has a meticulous way of doing her stuff. She maintains a diary where she jolts down every single detail about her patient. She remembers exactly when some test is needed, when a specific injection is to be given and so on. She texts right in the morning saying today this has to be done, today give blood sample for this test. She ensures that we dont forget at all. Even if we do, there will be that msg in WhatsApp telling us precisely what has to be done.

Our experience was very smooth at the hospital - various tests done, consultations, oocyte retrieval, sperm collection, IVF, embryo transfer & so on. Dr. Bhavna always made sure everything went properly and she kept a check on each and everything that her subordinates did. We were surprised that a senior consultant of her stature did not keep any juniors under her and she did every single thing herself.

On the whole, we loved her approach towards us. The way she handled our case from the beginning, taking care and love towards the intended mother, answering all our queries, giving us sufficient time in every visit, being a friend as well as a physician, everything just made our experience happy. She exudes a lot of positivity and love, and that tremendously helps set our thoughts and minds in order. The constant encouragement and support from her side made us give out the best gametes which successfully formed 8 embryos in the lab. In the first embryo transfer itself, 2 out of 3 transferred got implanted. We now have a healthy twin boy and girl, thanks to Dr. Bhavna.

We felt taken care of, loved and supported throughout the entire journey. Having had 4 IUIs, 4 IVFs and multiple embryo transfers before this at various other places, I will strongly vouch for Dr. Bhavna Banga for every couple who is finding it difficult to get pregnant. For those intended parents who have had multiple failures, I firmly say Dr. Bhavna is the infertility specialist for you.
