“ICSI a successful treatment for sperm fertility and motility”
Before conceiving, a man’s sperm need to fertilize with a woman’s egg, where the head of the sperm must attach the egg in the outer layer, allowing the sperm to push inside the egg (cytoplasm) for fertilization. In a few cases, sperm fails to penetrate due to a variety of reasons leaving the couple infertile.
In the fertility center, the couples are given treatments of IUI, IVF, ICSI depending on the infertility test of the patients. There are circumstances where an individualized approach gives the highest chance of success while factors such as medical history, age, and response to the previous cycle may suggest a split ICSI. A fertility specialist before suggesting IUI, IVF and ICSI treatment shall thoroughly examine the pre-test reports.
ICSI process is suggested when the male partner has sperms with reduced motility (asthenospermia), low concentrations of sperms in semen (oligospermia), excessive presence of abnormally shaped sperm (teratozoospermia/ teratospermia) or the other rooted issues of sperm penetration. Intracytoplasmic. Sperm Injection (ICSI) fertility treatment is the most common and result-oriented cure for couples caught in the turmoil of infertility. It can also be an effective means of treatment for anti-sperm antibodies in the semen.
Performed as the only component of IVF- ICSI treatment, the procedure involves injecting single sperm directly into the cytoplasm of a mature egg (oocyte) by using a needle under microscopic visualization. The technique was developed to gain success over infertility and to give hope to the partners who constantly faced failure in the previous IVF cycle. The only aim of the ICSI fertilization is to overcome barriers to fertilization and allow the couple to achieve fertilized embryo.

The ICSI procedure involves no additional risk. In a normal pregnancy, the birth defect such as miscarriage lies in between 1.5 to 3 percent while in the case of ICSI treatment, birth defects are slightly higher and are faced by 1 out of 10 pairs.
