What is ICSI?

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI, involves injecting the husband’s single live sperm directly into the Centre of the wife’s egg. ICSI improves the chance of fertilization by 80%. ICSI is more effective than normal IVF and the technology evolved to achieve fertilization when male infertility is the issue or previous IVF cycles were not successful. ICSI overcomes m any of the barriers to fertilization and allows couples with little hope of achieving a successful pregnancy to obtain fertilized embryos.
