Medical tour & talk at Sunfert International Fertility Centre

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was being invited to attend a medical 😷 knowledge & experiences sharing session by Dr 👨🏻‍⚕️Eeson Sinthamoney about helping his patients in overcoming ❌👶🏻 infertility & conceiving (including a mediacal tour) at Sunfert International Fertility Centre (Sunfert) 🏨

Dr. Eason was graduatedğŸ‘¨ğŸ»â€ğŸŽ“from Universiti Sains Malaysia 🇲🇾 in 1995 & furthered his studies in the UK 🇬🇧 He obtained his membership in the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists & was subsequently appointed as Fellow in Reproductive Medicine at St. George’s Hospital, London where his training included fertility, recurrent miscarriages, reproductive endocrinology & menopause 👍🏻

CaptureF1.JPG

From the latest statistic📊as at to-date which released by The Office Of Chief Statistician Malaysia 🇲🇾 Department Of Statistics dated 28 Oct 2016 📉It is estimated that it will continue decline then 🙁

Hmm…childlessness ❌👶🏻 issue actually affecting about 80million people in the world ğŸŒŽ It is estimated about 10% of married couples 👰🏻🤵🏻are experiencing unable to conceive at the end of 2️⃣ years marriage

Why❓Not conceive ⁉️

  • The married couple🤵🏻👰🏻not having enough sex❗️Ideally, to have intercourse every 1️⃣to 2️⃣ days
  • The couple is not having sex at the right time ~ Sperm on average can survive about 3️⃣ days in the female body while egg survive for 2️⃣ days. Therefore, fertile window on,y about  5️⃣ to 7️⃣ days only 
  • The couple is not doing sex correctly
  • The couple is suffering difficult intercourse

Causes of infertility❓⁉️

Generally about one-third each due to either male fertility issue ğŸ¤µğŸ»(the count, motility & normality of the sperm), female fertility issue ğŸ‘°ğŸ» (ovulatory, tubal/ uterine causes) or joint fertility issue ğŸ¤µğŸ»ğŸ‘°ğŸ» respectively

So, please don’t ever ❌ only point fingers 👉🏻 at the women 👰🏻 ya

Learnt 🔟 pearls of wisdom to summaries fertility cum infertility from her reading 📖 📚 

  • To consult 🗣👥 & understand your own fertility profiling, then 1/2 the battle won
  • Age is everything, so do plan & start your family👨‍👩‍👧‍👦as early as you can. Generally, females above 35 years old, the chances of conception will reduce ⬇️ significantly 
  • Early assessment & then seek for an early opinion. This may either reassure you that all are well or you may need to source for fertility treatment if required
  • Weight is a major issue, do check on your own & your partner’s BMI regularly
  • Male 👱🏻fertility issues are real, so please stop just blaming 👉🏻 the females 👱🏼‍♀️
  • Smoking🚬💨(including passive smoking) is harmful to fertility. Do quit it 🚭as early as possible‼️
  • Alcohol 🍺🍷🥃is harmful too to fertility, so either drink moderately or not to drink at all
  • Caffeine ☕️🍵drink contributes to infertility. Do consider to switch to non-caffeine drinks e.g. milk 🍼, soya🥛, fruit juice🍹etc.
  • Do consult 🗣👥which supplements or vitamins are good for both of you
  • Be positive ➕ as most of the fertility treatments available with high⬆️successful rate to most infertility couples

She was impressed with the humorous😆medical sharing by Dr. Eeson Sinthamoney 👨🏻‍⚕️(Medical Director & Fertility Specialist)

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻has learnt so much medical technical knowledge about infertility as well as the fertility treatments. She is trying her best to share what she has learnt in a simpler way i.e. Not too technical 😊 Opps…she has been delaying in sharing about this medical event attended though…reason being she is reading 📖 more & researching for Malaysian relevance data cum statistics 📊📈📉

Hmm…at the end, SiennyLovesDrawing decides to provide the relevant linkages (gathered from her reading & research) to the fertility treatment medical jargons here for you all to read instead of herself to simplify them in layman term, in case she made mistake of wrong intepretation & created unnecessary confusion 😌☺️

To be honest, Sunfert’s website 🌐 is very nicely 👍🏻set up with lots of detailed information too, bravo for the great effort❗️

The ceiling design with orange oval 🥚 shapes signifies about fertility

Sunfert is Malaysia’s 🇲🇾 fastest-growing fertility centre 🏨

What services do they provide❓

It offers a complete range of fertility services, investigations & treatments 🙂

Sunfert is with a wide comfy waiting area, moreover there is a mini cafe for you to self serve for some hot drinks ☕️🍵🥛

There are wifi connection 🌐 & charging🔋facilities available too

This Sunfert medical talk & tour took about couple of hours including Q&A session with Dr. Eeson Sinthamoney 👨🏻‍⚕️

The visit to Sunfert really an eye 👀opening experience for SiennyLovesDrawing as she got an exclusive opportunity to view through the microscope 🔬 for “Live sperms” & explanation by Dr. Ashar 👨🏻‍⚕️

Lots of photos with babies 👶🏻👶🏻 around, trust that these are the precious babies from assisted conception treatments by Sunfert

Hmm…Have been busy doing in depth reading & research on this medical topic so that she can have this medical technical blogging simple & for a layperson to understand it 👩🏻‍💻🖋🖌📝
