Can we use Hint in production code?

I have a query that runs much faster when specifying the particular index with Hint. Can we specify hint in golang production code? or is there any way in which we can improve the performance of query.

@Harsh_Kothari1 welcome and thanks for the question! You can specify an index hint on any operation using the SetHint setter on the corresponding operation options type.

For example, to set an index hint for a Find operation:

filter := bson.M{"my field": "my value"}

	options.Find().SetHint("index hint"))

When i run the same query with hint in Golang which i have already used in Studio 3T, then i see a huge increase in query execution time. I am unable to debug the reason behind it.
