ICSI - INTRACYTOPLASMIC SPERM INJECTION

ICSI Center in Shaikpet

Before the sperm can fertilize an egg, it must first attach itself to the outer layer of the egg and then penetrate through in order for fertilization to take place. Sometimes, this cannot be achieved at the ICSI Centre in Shaikpet for a variety of reasons such as the outer layer is thick or the sperm’s motility is low. That is where Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection or ICSI comes into play to help fertilize the egg.
Despite being developed for the treatment of male infertility at the ICSI center in Shaikpet with a resounding 85% success rate, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection has proven to be the go-to method for most couples.

HOW’S THIS DONE?

  • Sperm is collected either by means of masturbation or surgically extracted from the testicle through a small incision in cases where there might be a blockage preventing the sperm from being ejaculated or developed.
  • The female partner is given medical treatment about 2 weeks prior to the procedure in order to stimulate the ovaries to help produce multiple eggs.
  • During the first week, your blood estrogen levels are checked alongside assessing if the eggs are maturing in the follicles.
  • Once the follicles fully develop, you are given an hCG shot to stimulate the follicles and help them mature. The matured eggs are then collected 34 to 36 hours later by means of a laparoscope.
  • This is then taken over to our labs where the eggs are injected with a single sperm from the male partner or donor.
  • Fertilisation may take around 3 to 5 days and post fertilisation, one or more of the embryos are placed in the uterus using a fine thin instrument known as a catheter.

FAQs

A normal pregnancy comes with a 1.5 to 3% risk of birth defects. With ICSI the chances are slightly higher though extremely rare.

Since the sperm is obtained directly from the testes and injected into the ovaries, there might be a slight pain, discomfort or swelling.

The rate of fertilisation is generally higher at around 90% of the time since the sperm cells are collected from the testes and directly injected into the egg.

Your doctor may recommend how many will need to be implanted and the remaining embryos are frozen for future use.
