Helping Bring Two Together

Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection is a type of in vitro fertilisation that helps overcome male infertility. It involves injecting a single sperm directly into an egg to fertilise it and create an embryo. ICSI goes one step further than IVF to guarantee fertilisation instead of simply mixing the eggs and sperm together and allowing it to happen organically. Then similar to IVF, the embryo is transferred to the woman’s womb.

 

The procedure involves Ovulation Induction to stimulate the growth of eggs, followed by eggs retrieval, sperm sample from the male partner or retrieval from testicles, sperm selection, injecting sperm directly into a mature egg to create an embryo and finally embryo transfer into a woman’s womb.
