Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI is a procedure where a single sperm is picked up with a fine glass needle and injected directly into each egg to assist fertilisation.

Who needs ICSI?

ICSI emerges as a procedure of choice for couples contending with:

  • Low sperm count in males.
  • Poor sperm morphology or motility.
  • Limited success from prior IVF attempts, resulting in minimal or no fertilization.
  • Employment of frozen sperm due to quality concerns.
  • Scenarios requiring precise sperm-egg interaction, such as genetic testing.
  • Instances where sperm faces challenges in penetrating the egg or reaching the site of fertilization.

Comprehensive Consultation

Your fertility journey starts with our fertility specialist having a candid discussion during your consultation. As a result, a comprehensive medical evaluation reveals sperm-related challenges, prompting skilled embryologists to present tailored alternatives for resolution.

Strategic Stimulation

Aligned with the menstrual cycle’s onset (around day two or three), hormonal investigations and assessments are performed. The female partner receives essential medication leading to the growth of egg-containing follicles over 8 to 12 days. This results in monitoring the ovaries’ responsiveness through ultrasounds and regular blood tests.

Precise Egg Collection

After the medication phase, spanning 8 to 12 days, a triggering injection signals final egg maturation and detachment from the follicular wall. Approximately 34-36 hours post-trigger, a painless egg retrieval process takes place under mild sedation, guided by ultrasound.

Careful Embryo Transfer

The highest-quality embryos are earmarked for transfer to the woman’s uterus. This stems from  meticulous evaluation, and the resultant embryo transfer timing hinges on the quality and developmental stage of the chosen embryos.

Nurturing Post-Transfer

Following embryo transfer, supportive medications are often prescribed to foster embryo implantation within the uterine lining, elevating the prospects of a successful pregnancy. After a two-week span, pregnancy tests are taken to affirm the outcome.
