Abstract

Background: Infertility is a global medical problem with important psychological, economical, social, marital and medical implications. Majority of the infertile couples live in resource-poor countries, with limited access to the sophisticated assisted reproductive techniques. Also high-quality, low-cost infertility clinics are not available in the public sector. This study is to evaluate infertile couples in a resource limited setting; in which giving maximum benefit and reducing the treatment costs were the major stand.

Aims: - To evaluate the cases of infertility in rural area with available resources  in order to find the etiology.

- To manage the cases of infertility in rural area with available resources.

Method: A total of hundred patients, including both primary and secondary infertility, were evaluated right from history and further investigations and interventions as and when required. A note was made of every visit so as to minimize the treatment time and cost of the couple.

Result: A conception rate of 19% was achieved with the available limited resources.

Conclusion: Stepwise management of an infertile couple with proper planning of all the visits and judicial use of the available resources would give maximum positive outcome and minimize the treatment cost to an appreciable extent.
