INTRACYTOPLASMIC SPERM INJECTION (ICSI)
INTRACYTOPLASMIC SPERM INJECTION (ICSI) is a very similar fertility treatment to the conventional IVF treatment. The major difference between the IVF and ICSI procedures is the method of achieving fertilization. In conventional IVF procedure, the eggs and sperm are mixed together in a dish and the sperm fertilizes the egg ‘naturally’. Large numbers of actively swimming normal sperms are required to get best results from IVF procedure. But in many couples, the number of suitable sperm is very limited or there can be other factors which prevent fertilization hence conventional IVF treatment is not an effective option. In this case, ICSI procedure plays a crucial role to achieve pregnancy.
Sometimes the sperm cannot penetrate the outer layer due to various reasons. The egg’s outer layer can be thick or hard to penetrate or the sperm is unable to swim. In these cases, Fertility specialist doctor performs a procedure called as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). This procedure is performed along with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to help fertilize the egg. During ICSI procedure, a single sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm the egg. Intracytoplasmic Sperm injection (ICSI) involves the direct injection of sperm into eggs which are obtained from in vitro fertilization (IVF). ICSI treatment is very effective to cure male infertility diseases.
