Increasing work pressure at offices and a sedentary lifestyle are causing a large number of infertility cases that are being reported these days, according to the city-based doctors.

Test tube baby specialist Dr Shweta Kaul Jha, said, "Due to lack of awareness, patient reach us with high complications. Females are always held responsible for infertility issues. However, of late, infertility problems are seen more in males. Poor sperm quality and sperm count are posing huge problems for couples to conceive… It's the changing lifestyle habit, including stress, anxiety, poor nutrition and lack of exercise which are responsible for infertility issues."

During the last day of the free health check-up camp at Greater Kailash hospital where more than 340 people participated, Jha said, "Lifestyle diseases are very common and infertility is increasingly becoming one of them."

Adding that in metropolitan cities a new concept of egg banking is being practised she said, "Couples and even women who do not have time to have children due to complex career choices are opting for this. In cities like Indore it is yet to come."

Neurologist Dr Naveen Tiwari said, "Hypertension, diabetes and obesity are three diseases that make individual more prone to other diseases as well. In cases of neurological problems, including jerk or severe pain, patient should be rushed to hospital within 90 minutes so that an effective treatment can be given in case of a paralytic attack."
