Though people won't admit it, India's infertility burden is on the rise. Whether caused by environmental factors, an ever evolving lifestyle or just bodily issues, the increased number of doctors who have begun to practice fertility medicine has  also risen proportionally. With that backdrop, FERTICON 2013, a national symposium on fertility and high risk pregnancy, is being conducted across the weekend in Chennai. Organising the event are Dr T Kamaraj and Dr Jeyarani Kamaraj of Aakash Fertility Centre and Hospital, who are the organising secretary and president respectively.

"There will be fertility experts from across the country and even from other countries participating in this event. There will be knowledge and technique sharing to enhance the quality of medical care that can be infused into fertility medicine," said Dr Kamaraj, who is one of more reputed fertility and reproductive medicine experts in the city.

With seminars, lectures, video components and several other activities for the participating doctors, FERTICON looks to be a platform to bring together a breed of doctors who have always worked individually - most often growing on the strength of their results and reputation. But this event will bring them together and give people who are in need of fertility treatment and desire the joys of childbirth, an increased faith that fertility medicine is as much an exact science as any other stream of medicine. The conference which began on Friday will conclude on July 14.
