Who are the suitable candidates for IVF ICSI
IVF ICSI is ideal for couples who have previously undergone standard IVF but have shown poor fertilization or infertility. Additionally, it is suitable for men to overcome infertility issues.
- Poor or low sperm production to undergo intrauterine insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
- If your sperm moves slowly instead of normal motility, i.e., asthenozoospermia
- If you produce poor or abnormal sperm morphology
- May have an obstruction in the reproductive tract such as vasectomy that restricts the release of sperm
- To avoid the repeated trouble faced while attaching the sperm to the egg
- If your body creates anti-sperm antibodies to block sperm function
- Failed vasectomy reversal that resulted in poor sperm quality
Other reasons to consider IVF ICSI are:
- When uses earlier frozen eggs
- When using In Vitro matured eggs
- Repeated failure using the traditional In Vitro Fertilization method
How does IVF ICSI work?
- Our fertility doctors first provide medication to boost the growth of the follicles that contain eggs
- Then the monitoring of the ovaries response begins to control the volume and amount of follicles through ultrasound and blood tests
- To eject the matured eggs, the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin injection is necessary. It triggers the egg and loosens it from the follicle wall.
- Before starting the egg retrieval process, rest for about 1 to 2 days is vital after administering stimulus injection
- After that, the doctor provides sedation to the woman to retrieve eggs under the guidance of ultrasound
- Our doctors choose the natural motility sperm.
- The egg maturation is closely monitored and then injects the single sperm into the matured egg using a small needle called a micropipette.
- Further cultivation takes place inside the laboratory
- Ultimately the transfer of the embryo takes place through the cervix of the recipient’s uterus
Generally, IVF ICSI is a safe procedure, and that is why it is becoming increasingly popular to treat male infertility. However, it comes with certain risk factors.
- Chromosomal anomalies
- Mental Disorders such as Intellectual Disabilities, Autism
- Epigenetic Syndromes
