When to opt for ICSI?
ICSI can be opted in a number of male infertility scenarios. These include:
Low sperm count: The sperm count in the semen is low.
Low sperm motility: Inability/low speed of the semen in the uterus and reach ovum.
Bad morphology: Abnormal size/shape of the sperm making it difficult to fuse with ovum.
Poor functional capacity: Inability of the sperm to reach/fuse with ovum.
Poor survival rate: Inability of the sperm to survive in the uterus.
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.
