Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
The Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection, commonly known as ICSI is basically an Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). This technology is used to solve issues related to male infertility as a result of no sperm ejaculating in the semen. The fertilization stage of in-vitro fertilization or IVF is strengthened as a result of the injection of a sperm into a mature egg. This fertilized egg is then inserted in the uterus of a woman.
At Yash IVF, our doctors may advise ICSI to males with low sperm count and/or low sperm motility even after repeated success of IVF.
ICSI is likely to be recommended if you have
- Zero sperm count or low sperm count
- High percentage of abnormally shaped sperms resulting in poor motility
- Erectile dysfunction due to spinal cord injuries or diabetes
- Sperms that cannot be ejaculated but can be collected from the duct where it is stored
