What is ICSI?

What is ICSI?

Male infertility always puts bigger challenge in front of us and as infertility expert it is always learning. Male infertility is much complex than the female one and there are various parameters that need to be looked into. There have been multiple techniques developed to treat the issue and ICSI is one of them. It is so common that you might have heard that term frequently.

When we perform In Vitro Fertilization during the treatment of infertility, sperms are injected in the egg using a special needle. ICSI is the abbreviation of Intracytoplasmic sperm injection and it is one of the fundamental treatments of male infertility cases.

I use special tools and equipment to perform activities like picking up the best sperms and inserting them in the egg. Both activities are very critical, delicate and complicated. The sperms are injected to the core of the eggs and the process requires very high precision and perfection. The success ratio is more than 75 to 80 percent. I give special hormonal injection to the female partner because the uterus needs to be prepared for the pregnancy.

Who are the best candidates for ICSI?
