In the year 2021, the fertility rate per woman was 2.179, which is .95% less than the year 2020.
Currently, childless women are allowed to become mothers with the help of IVF till the age of 45. But after the Lok Sabha on Wednesday passed the ‘Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) ie ART Bill 2020′, childless women will be able to become mothers till the age of 50 with the help of IVF. There will be an improvement in the wages received by the egg donor women and their health will also be taken care of.
At present 12 to 14 eggs are removed from one egg donor woman.
Some doctors, on the condition of anonymity, told that in some centers there is not even a team of trained doctors, embryologists, or anesthetists and eggs are removed without the consent of the donor. The biggest crime is that the age of the egg donor is not seen. After the implementation of the ART Act, this unruly system will be put to a halt.
Between 2014 and 2020, the IVF market grew by 15%
The position of women will be stronger
As soon as this bill is changed into law, the interests of childless couples and donors will be protected. According to Dr. Pankaj Talwar, Head of Medical Services, Birla Fertility and IVF, “Till now women in the age group of 18 to 45 years had the right to become a mother with the help of ART but after the implementation of this law due to increasing infertility. A childless woman will be able to try to become a mother by the age of 50.
Many women lack ‘egg’ in their body. Egg donor facility is taken for them. After the introduction of this law, it will be ensured which women can donate eggs and how many can donate eggs. Egg donors will also get the facility of insurance.
Donor’s condition will improve
Childless couples will expect easy
So far, the Infertility Centers and Clinics are functioning as per the guidelines framed by the Indian Council of Medical Research in the year 2014. After the introduction of this law, if there is a mistake in this process of medical treatment, the condition of the patient will be stronger than before and the responsibility of the doctors will increase more.
The needy living in any corner of the country will have the correct information about IVF centers and the facilities present in them. They will not have to depend on the information of any third party. Patient’s safety will become important and they will be equipped with rights. The mental and physical problems of the surrogate mother and egg donor woman will be less.
IVF centers will come inside the scanner
Dr. Pankaj Talwar says, “Such clinics running all over the country will work within the purview of the law. Under this law, boards will be formed at the national and state level and only after examining all the aspects, the centers will be allowed to do IVF.
The modus operandi of ART Clinics and ART Banks will become clearer. The law also talks about providing insurance cover to the donor and the surrogate. Such laws have existed in the US, UK, Canada for a long time. After this law, all IVF centers in the country will come under the scanner. The level of training, laboratories and machines of the doctors working at these centers will also be checked. The results of all such clinics will have to be accounted for by the government. With the data coming out, patients will be able to choose the right center for themselves.”
