A single sperm is assisted in "entering" the egg using the intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) procedure. This approach has particular success in treating male infertility issues.
Our highly trained scientists, known as Embryologists, seek for the optimal sperm, catch it, and inject this one sperm directly into the centre of the egg because it only takes one sperm to fertilize the egg.
In this area of medicine, there is no "standard of care" for determining which instances require the ICSI technique and which do not.
Some clinics employ it in every case, while others only use it in cases of severe male factor infertility. Approximately half of all IVF clinics fall between these two extremes.
Our perspectives on ICSI have evolved over time, and we currently perform more ICSI procedures than we did 10 to 12 years ago. Our ideas will advance as we gain more knowledge regarding techniques for aiding couples in getting pregnant.
Severe infertility due to the male factor in which donor sperm insemination is not desired.
Couples experiencing infertility who have sperm counts below 15-20 million per milli litre.
Lower than 35% sperm motility.
A very poor morphology of sperm
A history of unsuccessful IVF or IVF with a low rate of fertilization (low percentage of mature eggs that were normally fertilized).
Couples with a limited egg yield at egg retrieval may utilize it occasionally. In this case, ICSI is being utilized in an attempt to increase the number of fertilized eggs compared to normal egg insemination (mixing eggs and sperm together).
