ICSI ( IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection )

ICSI ( IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection ) is the injection of a single sperm directly into the cytoplasm of the egg.

Who requires ICSI?

A patient who has a low sperm count, very poor motility, or a high percentage (greater than 95% of sperm with an “abnormal” shape (morphology). Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a technique used during in vitro fertilization (IVF) where a single sperm is injected directly into the egg for the purpose of fertilization.

ICSI is the only hope for the patient-

Steps involved in ICSI

  • OVarian Stimulation is done by gonadotropin injections and egg recovery as in IVF.
  • A single sperm is injected into the cytoplasm of the eggs and is left for fertilization in an incubator as in IVF
  • Transfer of embryo to the uterus occurs in the same routine manner as that for IVF. ICSI can be used for all types of sperm problems-even those with the extreme condition.
