Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection

IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) procedure is one of the infertility treatment options for couples with infertility issues to increase the chances of fertilization and conception. The treatment can dramatically improve fertilization in a severe male factor infertility. This procedure mainly addresses male infertility factor, which can considerably reduced the incidence of donor sperm in infertility treatment among couples.
Low sperm count is a common factor in infertility cases in couples. With Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), a single sperm is extracted from the man and injected into the woman's egg resulting in a significantly higher fertilization chances. This process can also be used in conjunction with IVF.
Couples who have failed to achieve fertilization or poor fertilization can obtain Intracytoplasmic sperm injection at Delight hospital and fertility centre. However, ICSI is useful in achieving fertilization, but it may not guarantee total success, since poor quality eggs can make fertilization generally unsuccessful.
