Twin Success – After 9 Years of Infertility due to Azoospermia

Patient Sadaf Nazaakat, 27 years of age came to us with 9 years of infertility period since marriage. She was treated by Dr. Iftikhar Sadique. During initial investigations, it became clear that this was a case of Male Infertility and consequently Sadaf had failed to conceive due to her husband’s poor semen quality.

Mr Nazaakat was diagnosed with Azoospermia and recommended testicular biopsy. At ACIMC, Dr. Khumair performed testicular biopsy procedure and managed to retrieve few motile sperms.

At ACIMC, we performed the ICSI procedures using the few motile sperms found. Alhamdulillah the patient tested positive after their first attempt. We are proud of our team given that two other renowned infertility clinics of Lahore had turned them down.

The patients visited us to share their joy when Allah blessed them with healthy TWINS seen in the photograph with our Lahore Team.

Role of Dioxins in ENDOMETRIOSIS

There have been extensive studies looking at the link between endometriosis and environmental pollution and chemicals in the environment. The use of chemicals has increased dramatically in the past few decades.
These chemicals then enter the food chain as well as the general environment. It is now being speculated that this increase in chemicals could be one factor that is causing endometriosis, or at least increasing the numbers of women and girls who are now developing the disease.
Our bodies are now surrounded by many toxic chemicals every day. These come from the air we breathe, the water we drink, from our food chain, from the harsh chemical based toiletries we use and the many house-hold cleaners we use in our homes.
Many of these chemicals can mimic the action of oestrogen when they are absorbed by the body. One group of chemicals that has caused much concern is Dioxin.
Nowadays these chemicals are found in pesticides, industrial chemicals (PCBs) and industrial by-products (dioxin and furans) during the production of chlorine-containing pesticides, wood preservatives and paper.

Virtually all human exposure to these chemicals occurs from foods and in particular through consumption of fish, meat, eggs and dairy products. Dioxin persist in the environment for years and accumulate in the fat of farm animals that eat contaminated feed, contaminated grazing, and water supply.
The effects of dioxin on the body are far-reaching and very damaging. Biochemical studies have shown that dioxins act as powerful “environmental hormones”. Like the body’s natural hormones, dioxin can cross cell membranes and alter the activity of genes that regulate the body’s processes of development and self-maintenance.
These damaging effects can include:
• the immune system
• fetal death
• reproductive dysfunction i.e. endometriosis
• organ toxicity – liver, spleen, thymus
• modulation of hormones and receptors
• birth defects
• diabetes

Many of the unwanted toxic chemicals that enter your body have a similar physical structure to that of natural oestrogen and it is vital that women with endometriosis try to avoid them. These chemicals are known as ‘xeno-oestrogens’ and when they enter the body they can trick the body into thinking they are the genuine natural structures of oestrogen.
The body then allows these unnatural chemicals to connect with the cells that communicate with oestrogen and interfere with the natural balance. This then leads to oestrogen dominance and helps to feed endometriosis.
Dioxin also appears to block the body’s production of progesterone and increasing the problem of hormone imbalance and oestrogen dominance.

Ways to reduce these xeno-estrogens:
• reduce you use of chemical based toiletries – they are utterly laden with chemicals
• reduce your use to household cleaners and use old fashioned remedies instead
• do not eat dairy foods or meat – these should be avoided on the diet for endometriosis anyway
• maintain liver health – as the liver is the biggest ‘cleansing/detoxing organ in the body
• reduce the amount of food stuffs you purchase that are packaged in plastic containers – ie. convenience foods

Saima Imran – Singapore – Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) Success Story

The cost of infertility treatment is significant in Singapore. In addition there is a lot of cultural support and care required when going through the treatment. As a couple we decided to look into treatment options in Pakistan given that we both speak Urdu fluently and could easily fit-in with the culture back home.

After 12 years of marriage I had never conceived before. We had attempted ICSI and FET already in Pakistan at other fertility clinics but both attempts were unsuccessful.

I remember ACIMC responded very quickly and professionally and we got in touch with their Coordinator Doctors at Karachi (head office) initially to gain a better understanding of treatment options, costs, accommodation. To be honest, we were delighted to learn the cost was 3-4 times less as compared to Singapore and ACIMC also offered to provide assistance with Accommodation nearby their clinics.

When we arrived we reported at the Lahore Reception and the staff was very friendly. I had a history of irregular periods so Dr. Iftikhar initially treatment me to bring the menstrual cycle to regular and then we proceeded with the treatment.

ACIMC offered the option to make payments in installments which helped with the cash flow. Frozen Embryo Transfer was done at ACIMC Lahore. Alhamdulillah I conceived with Twins.

I am really thankful to the ACIMC team across Pakistan who provided really good care throughout the treatment.
