New Delhi: After 46 years of her marriage and about 20 years after her menopause, 72-year-old Daljinder Kaur successfully delivered a healthy baby boy, Arman Singh, on April 19, 2016.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, Daljinder Kaur and her 79-year-old husband, Mohinder Singh Gill's urge to have a child was fulfilled through the in-vitro fertilisation (IVF-test tube) technique, wherein the eggs and sperms are fertilised outside the womb, in a test tube.
Since 2013, the couple had been travelling from Amritsar in Punjab to Hisar in Haryana to ensure the success of the treatment, as reported.
In July last year, Kaur Kaur finally conceived after two failed IVF cycles.
Dr Anurag Bishnoi, embryologist and owner of the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby Centre in Hisar said that Daljinder Kaur came to him alone first in 2013, after reading about them in a paper, as reported.
Doctor found Kaur’s medical reports to be normal and fit to conceive.
Dr Anurag Bishnoi said that they started work within two months in 2013 but the first attempt failed, which is normal. After six months, another attempt was made and that also didn’t succeed. Finally, the third attempt was successful.
Doctors say it was most likely due to tubal blocks, as for the cause of infertility
This is the second case at the centre where a 70-year-old woman has delivered successfully through IVF.
The first case was of 70-yearold Rajo Devi in 2006, who had given birth to a baby girl.
