While there is no average age for infertility and advances have been gained to resolve it, it would still be a stress-free environment that would make the experience easier for all, towards a possible successful pregnancy.

Dr. Ghada Hussein, with over 20 years of exposure in the field of fertility in the UAE, Sweden, Jordan, Iraq and Qatar, was interviewed on Monday.

She was among the speakers at the Sept.2-4 “Fourth HealthPlus Middle East Fertility Conference in Dubai.”

In connection with the SARS-CoV2, she said: “We have seen several studies around the effects of the vaccine and those who have been previously infected by the virus, and there is no conclusive evidence that points to a drop in fertility and (the Novel Coronavirus).”

At the conference that ran under the theme “Bridging the Gap in Fertility” and which was inaugurated by Department of Health-Abu Dhabi-Healthcare Facilities Sector executive Director Hind Al Zaabi, the HealthPlus Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility consultant, discussed before delegates from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Belgium, Sweden, UK, Canada and Denmark, “a revolutionary procedure that helps patients with absolute uterine factor infertility.”

According to the pathfertility.com, absolute uterine factor arises from “an abnormality of the uterus (womb), or a complete lack of uterus” which could be congenital or acquired. Reproductive/Fertility Medicine specialists normally theorise this is the cause, if there were repeated miscarriages.

The “lack menstruation” is also a sign and symptom.

Previously interviewed, Hussein’s colleague, Prof. Ahmed Elbohoty who served as the conference chairman, explained the theme, which technically refers to the existence of a void or unanswered problems or challenges with regard to fertility rates and the desire of spouses to have children of their own: “It is a very interesting theme as there is always something more to be discovered or explored in our scientific community; just when you reach a conclusion, you find another area or point of view that is worth investigating. Scientists are always looking to try and fill in the gaps as much as possible. In the field of reproduction, there are a lot of gaps. We try every day to solve these by conducting new research, undergo experiments, explore new medications, and try new treatments for improve patient outcomes.”

On Monday, Hussein said: “Fertility is a rapidly changing field that witnesses several breakthroughs periodically. A few years ago, it was not possible for patients suffering with absolute uterine factor infertility to conceive a child.
