What is ICSI? It is a superior form of IVF where the sperm is injected into the egg by a micromanipulator syringe. Fertilization is outside the body using specifically selected sperm and good quality eggs. ICSI is a type of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Procedure specifically meant for poor sperm quality.
Why do you do ICSI? When sperm quality is not good, the doctor will select the best quality sperm using a micromanipulator, and will directly inject it into the egg. (Normally the sperm will enter the egg by itself.)
What is the ICSI Procedure?
- Preparation for ICSI:
Correct BMI of woman
Hormone Assay for the woman
Based on BMI and hormone assay, an Ovarian Stimulation Protocol is made specifically for the woman in order to induce ovulation
Ovulation Induction drugs/injections are given to get more number good quality eggs.
- Controlled Ovarian Stimulation: The ovary is stimulated by a proper, tailor-made Ovarian Stimulation Protocol. The aim is to get the optimal number of good quality eggs.
- Oocyte is retrieved from the female by a procedure called Ovum-Pick-Up, which is done under short General Anesthesia (GA).
- Sperm is Collected, analyzed, and washed. Good quality sperms are selected for ICSI.
- The selected sperm will be injected into the the egg using a micromanipulator syringe and fertilization is done.
- The fertilized egg will become an embryo. After 3-5 days, the live embryo will be transferred directly into the uterus of the woman.
