Abstract

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) in India has a long and illustrious history, perhaps as long as IVF itself. Its beginnings were disputed, as was its later development. IVF set the groundwork for assisted conception treatment in India, as well as the battleground for lawful ownership of the first "test-tube baby miracle." It chronicles the debate over medical claims and counterclaims that appear to have arisen as a result of India's rapid expansion of assisted conception. Partner support is crucial in reducing the burden of infertility-related stress, and partner coping skills, while understudied, play a crucial effect on the other partner's ability to cope with the infertility experience, which has an impact on treatment success. Research, especially in low- and middle-income countries, looks at the psychological and social elements of male infertility. In our low-resource situation, a better knowledge of men's perspectives, expectations, and obstacles of reproductive treatment is needed. The article underlines that this divisive subject was mostly played out in the media, and it demonstrates that scientific credibility and reward are generated and attributed both within and outside the scientific field.
