Since teenage, I had the problem of irregular or prolonged periods and every time my weight was pointed as a reason. A few days before my marriage, I visited a gynae for a general check-up and she asked me about my marriage. Upon knowing that it was happening soon, she advised me not to delay in planning for a baby.
After 1 year of my marriage, we were desperate to start a family but deep inside I was afraid of not conceiving ever. Two years passed by with the hope of having a baby. With each missed period, there came a hope of being pregnant, which eventually got lost with a negative HPT. I consulted my family Gynecologist who advised me to visit an infertility specialist because the quality of my eggs was poor and also I was also a case of PCOD.
My past experience with Max Hospital was good so I searched for an infertility specialist and it showed me Dr. Bhavna Banga’s name. In Aug ’15, we decided to visit her but I was a little apprehensive in the meeting because it may term me as infertile. Thankfully, our first meeting with Dr. Banga went well. It lasted for half an hour and she devised a plan of action along with some basic tests. Since I was a dense PCOD case, Dr. Bhavna asked me to go for an IUI or an IVF and briefed us about the cost of the procedure, and its success rate.
We decided to go for IVF as I did want to waste any time. In April ’16, my first cycle of IVF yielded good results. Dr. Bhavna was confident during the whole procedure and reassured me. Unfortunately, a polyp was detected in my uterus and I had to undergo a procedure to get it removed. After this, my blood results showed high sugar levels, which was again a risk factor. When all these things got settled, in July’ 16, we planned for the transfer and everything went well. I was tensed during the whole procedure but Dr. Banga was confident about my pregnancy.
A day before my blood test (HCG) was scheduled; I received a message from Dr. Bhavna asking me to do a HPT in the morning. By god’s grace and Dr. Bhavna’s commitment, the test came out to be positive and my pregnancy was confirmed. I am in my second trimester now and my baby is doing great. I sincerely extend my gratitude towards Dr. Bhavna Banga for helping me in conceiving.
