ICSI, standing for Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection is the most promising and breakthrough Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatment for sperm related male infertility problems. Usually deployed in conjunction with IVF, ICSI is a boon for male patients who have problem with the sperm counts or motility. At SaiShree Infertility Hospital, the most sought after ICSI treatment centre in Pune, adopts the best of technology to achieve parenthood for our patients.
Necessity of ICSI
ICSI has gained popularity since the last decade and it has completely revolutionized the infertility treatment procedure where the root cause of the problem was with sperm. For instance, it is not possible for a woman to conceive without ICSI if her male partner has the following medical conditions
- Very low sperm count or motility
- Complete absence of sperm in semen (Azoospermia)
- Issues with vas deferens
- Irreversible vasectomy
- Retrograde ejaculation
Moreover, ICSI is considered as good option even for the following situations:
- In the event of failure of Intra Uterine insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
- Thick outer covers of eggs released by older women
It is worth emphasizing at this juncture that ICSI renders an incredible success rate of 75% for embryo formation and has become the defacto treatment procedure for IVF.
How it is performed?
The procedures followed for the ICSI is more or less similar to that of IVF, except for the combination of sperm and egg to form embryo.
- Controlled ovarian stimulation with the fertility drugs to enhance the production of matured eggs.
- Continuous monitoring of egg development
- Retrieval of matured eggs and their isolation in laboratory.
- Analysis of semen sample to find the sperm count. If the sperm count is zero in semen sample, sperms are collected from testis through PESA / TESA.
Once the embryo forms after few days since fertilization, they are carefully placed in the uterus and the IVF route is further proceeded.
