Jalandhar: The core unit of any progressive society is a healthy and a happy individual which is entailed only by a complete and a healthy family…and where family health is concerned, there is no denying that major part of it is relied on the health of the women of the household. With the changing times, the lady of the house has to strive for achieving an optimal balance between her personal and professional life which has adversely affected her health.

With the same thought in mind, CT Group of Institutions invited Dr. Jasmine Dhaiya- MD (Gynaecologist) from NOVA Fertility Centre, Jalandhar to conduct a general awareness talk on "fertility Treatments" for all the female faculty and students CT Shahpur Campus. The session was attended by more than 200 female faculty members.

Her session shed light on remedial and assisted reproductive procedures available these days to help ease the concerns of any couple unable to conceive naturally. The session was very well received by the entire faculty. Her talk was an eye opener to strong baggage of social stigma and a huge gamut of myths and misunderstandings attached with gynaec concerns.

She said that the upsurge in lifestyle risk factors is found to be one of the key drivers for the high occurrence of infertility among Indian men and women. Dr. Jasmine Dhaiya said “Apart from those, certain medical conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, pelvic infections, pre-mature ovarian failure, pre-mature menopause, etc. also cause unexpected onset of infertility. While clinical solutions can help overcome the medical factors, there is an urgent need to create awareness on the lifestyle risk factors, especially amongst the youngsters. This will reduce the negative effects on fertility.”

Mrs. Parminder Kaur Channi (Co-Chairperson, CT Group of Institutions) extended her gratitude for her salubrious thoughts. She said that with this session CT Institutions have tried to break the Taboo in which sensitive topic related to human issues were discussed.
