What is ICSI?

ICSI, short for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, is an advanced procedure utilized within assisted reproductive technology, particularly in vitro fertilization (IVF). Unlike traditional IVF where sperm and eggs are mixed together in a dish and fertilization occurs naturally, ICSI involves the direct injection of a single sperm cell into an egg. This technique is often employed in cases of male infertility where sperm quality or quantity is compromised, rendering natural fertilization or traditional IVF less effective. Since its introduction in the 1990s, ICSI has become a valuable tool in helping couples overcome male infertility challenges and achieve successful pregnancies through IVF.

When to opt for ICSI?

CSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is typically chosen under the following circumstances:

Male Factor Infertility: ICSI is often recommended when the male partner exhibits low sperm count (oligospermia), poor sperm motility, or abnormal sperm morphology, hindering natural fertilization.

Previous IVF Failures: If prior IVF attempts have resulted in low fertilization rates or unsuccessful fertilization, ICSI may be suggested to enhance the chances of successful fertilization.

Obstructive Azoospermia: In cases where there is a blockage in the male reproductive tract preventing sperm release into the ejaculate, ICSI enables retrieval of sperm directly from the testes or epididymis.

Unexplained Infertility: When the cause of infertility remains unclear despite thorough evaluation, ICSI can circumvent potential fertilization obstacles.

Advanced Maternal Age: Women of advanced maternal age may experience diminished egg quality, leading to decreased fertilization rates. ICSI can augment the likelihood of successful fertilization, particularly when combined with IVF.

NOTE: The decision to pursue ICSI should be made in collaboration with a fertility specialist who can evaluate the unique circumstances of each couple and recommend the most suitable treatment approach.

Procedure for ICSI

The process of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) includes ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, sperm collection, sperm preparation, microinjection of a single sperm into an egg, culture and observation of fertilization, embryo transfer, and optionally, embryo freezing for future use.
