As the awareness and talk around infertility increases, there are more treatments coming about for different and specific kinds of problems. IVF is the most well-known techniques, with better success rate, are also rising. One of such is ICSI which is sometimes also known as ICSI-IVF as it is not totally detached from IVF but only adds a few more steps.
ICSI or intracytoplasmic sperm injection involves injecting a single healthy sperm into the cytoplasm of an healthy egg or the center of the egg. ICSI is mostly used to deal with male infertility.
In this procedure, the female partner undergoes ovarian stimulation so that several mature eggs are developed. This is done using fertility medication. The eggs are then retrieved. The best sperm is selected using centrifuging. This sperm is then injected into the egg. After fertilization it is placed into the female partner’s Uterus.
ICSI is one of the most successful treatments. Though it doesn’t seem very different from IVF, it bypasses a big step in fertilization and thus increases the chances of fertilization.
