ICSI – microfertilisation

The ICSI technique has helped many couples with significant infertility problems to have children.This technique involves the placement of the sperm cell into the egg by means of a very thin needle. Once the sperm cell is immobilised, it is aspirated into the needle which enters the interior of the egg by penetrating both the zone and the membrane which protect the egg.When this occurs, the sperm cell is placed inside of the egg and the needle is removed from it.

A few hours later, the embryologist will know if fertilisation has taken place. All these procedures are performed under microscope with the use of micro-toolstocontrol micromanipulation. The embryologist examines the sperm under the microscope and decides whether ICSI will increase the chances of having a child.

Usually it is recommended when:

  • The number of sperm cells is low

  • The sperm cells mobility is low and they have poor morphology.

  • There are a large number of anti-sperm antibodies in the sample.

  • IVFattempts have been made and few or none of the ovahave been fertilised

  • The sperm cells originate directly from the epididymis or following a biopsy
