What is Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)?

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.

How does Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) work?

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.

Who is a candidate for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)?

ICSI support in overcoming fertility problems, such as:

  • Few sperm of male partners
  • The sperm does not travel in a normal fashion
  • The sperm may have a problem attaching to the egg
  • There is a blockage in the male reproductive system that prevents sperm from getting out
  • Regardless of the condition of the sperm, eggs have not been fertilized by traditional IVF
  • In vitro matured eggs are utilized
  • Past frozen eggs are being used

How successful is Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)?

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.

What are the risks with the Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) procedure?

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:

  • Enhanced risk of miscarriage
  • Surgery for infants having heart problems
  • Enhanced risk of behavior or learning disabilities
  • Your child may have infertility

What can You Expect from Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)?

Before the Procedure

You and your partner may have to undergo different kinds of screening before the procedure, such as

  • Ovarian reserve testing
  • Semen analysis
  • Infectious disease screening
  • Uterine exam

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.

  • When the follicles look promising, then women will receive an injection of hCG, which aid in maturing the eggs. After the injection, egg retrieval will be scheduled, during which you will be placed under sedation, and eggs will be collected via an ultrasound-guided needle procedure.
  • The healthy sperm of a man is picked up using a hollow and delicate needle, which is carefully injected through the outer wall of the egg, into the cytoplasm.
  • The needle is removed from the egg, which is then monitored for the evidence of fertilization.
  • After fertilization, our embryologist will select the healthiest embryos and transfer these to the uterus.

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.
