What is the procedure for Successful ICSI?
This is a very precise procedure in which first the wife is given injection so that the follicles can develop. Oocytes are then extracted from these developed follicles and are injected with husband’s sperm. In case there is an absence of sperm in semen, then sperm is directly retrieved from the testes. A single sperm is injected into the oocyte and the resultant embryo is then implanted into the uterus.

ICSI helps couples fulfil their dream of having their own child and a complete family.

How does ICSI work?

There are two ways that an egg may be fertilized by IVF: traditional and ICSI. In traditional IVF, 50,000 or more swimming sperm are placed next to the egg in a laboratory dish. Fertilization occurs when one of the sperm enters into the cytoplasm of the egg. In the ICSI process, a tiny needle, called a micropipette, is used to inject a single sperm into the center of the egg. With either traditional IVF or ICSI, once fertilization occurs, the fertilized egg (now called an embryo) grows in a laboratory for 1 to 5 days before it is transferred to the woman’s uterus (womb).
