Birth control isn’t one-size-fits-all. There are lots of different kinds of birth control methods that work in different ways. That’s where our expertise comes in.

Gynecologists at Sanjeevini Hospital determine the cause of the irregular periods and help you figure out a treatment course. This may include oral contraceptives to regulate your cycle.

Infertility

Sanjeevini Hospital offers different solutions for you infertility problems:

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment in which sperm and egg are combined in a laboratory setting to allow for fertilization outside of the body with subsequent transfer of the embryo back into the uterus.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) a type of artificial insemination — is a procedure for treating infertility. Sperm that have been washed and concentrated are placed directly in your uterus around the time your ovary releases one or more eggs to be fertilized.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a specialised form of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) that is used primarily for the treatment of severe cases of male-factor infertility. ICSI involves the injection of a single sperm directly into a mature egg.

Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI) is a non-invasive sperm selection process used during the ICSI procedure. IMSI uses a high powered lens to look at sperm under very high magnification and allows the embryologists to see greater detail during the sperm selection process.
