ICSI is a standard technique that is used for overcoming serious male infertility. This procedure entails the injection of a single, healthy sperm into the female egg’s cytoplasm to induce artificial fertilization and achieve the embryo. ICSI has demonstrated itself to be the most successful form of IVF treatment as the procedure enables doctors to select the healthiest sperm.
Eggs are fertilized in two ways in IVF-traditional and ICSI. In the traditional method, we placed a sperm next to the egg in a lab. When one of the sperm enters into the cytoplasm of the egg, later on, it may fertilize. Whereas, in the ICSI technique, a tiny needle called a micropipette is utilized to inject a single sperm into the female egg center. The eggs are then fertilized into an embryo before it is transferred to a women’s womb.
ICSI support in overcoming fertility problems, such as:
Many couples achieve successful pregnancy at Yashoda Hospital. Fertilization rates are usually 70-80 percent of all eggs injected-which is similar to the fertilization with normal sperm. Our pregnancy rates are comparable with the traditional IVF methods. The most important indicator of any ICSI procedure is the fertilization rate outcome through the ICSI procedure. And we are proud of the fact that at Yashoda hospital, on average, seven out of every ten eggs will fertilize normally.
Due to needle insertion, less than 5 percent of eggs may get damaged. There is minimal risk of having a baby with an abnormality in the X or Y chromosomes. Some other risks are:
Before the Procedure
You and your partner may have to undergo different kinds of screening before the procedure, such as
The woman will be taking birth control pills or injectable medication that may prevent the ovulation cycle before treatment. The doctor will help you regulate the ovulation so that eggs are not lost before the retrieval.
During the Procedure
An ICSI procedure usually involves several steps, including; ovarian stimulation, egg collection, sperm collection, fertilization, and embryo transfer. Generally, the whole cycle of ICSI can take about two to three weeks, and if required, more than one cycle has to be undertaken.
After the procedure
After the embryo transfer, you can start your normal daily activities. The success of any ICSI procedure depends on various factors such as your age, cause of infertility, and previous treatment results. We conduct blood tests and ultrasounds from time to time to determine if the implantation was successful and also to assess the trace of the pregnancy journey.
