Why use ICSI for infertility treatment as an option?

ICSI, which stands for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, is a good choice for couples who are having trouble getting pregnant for specific reasons, especially male factor infertility. It gives the chance of fertilization a higher opportunity in situations where regular IVF might not work.

This option is usually recommended in the following situations:

  1. When there are problems with the sperm, such as low mobility, low count, or abnormal shape (male problem).
  2. If previous attempts with standard IVF have not been successful. (Previous IVF Failures)
  3. When there are problems with a woman’s ability to reproduce, that keeps the sperm from getting to the egg.
  4. In cases where a few eggs are available for fertilization.

  • The First Consultation

A meeting with a fertility expert will be set up so that you and your partner can talk about your medical history, fertility problems, and possible treatment options.

The expert will discuss Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), how often it works, and potential risks or problems. You should now ask questions and know what to expect.

Medical tests and preparations that need to be done

Medical Exams: You will have some medical exams, such as:

  • Semen analysis is done to figure out how much and what kind of sperm there is.
  • Tests for hormones and other evaluations: Both partners should ensure they are healthy and ready.
  • Medicines for infertility: The woman will start taking medication for infertility to make her body make more eggs.
  • Instructions for Collecting Sperm: The man will be shown how to collect and store his sperm sample properly.

How to Start Ovulation and Get Back Eggs

  • Ovulation Induction: During ovulation induction, fertility drugs will be used to make the woman’s ovaries work harder so they can make more eggs.
  • Egg removal: Transvaginal ultrasound-guided oocyte removal is a minor surgery to obtain the eggs. This procedure takes about 30 minutes and is generally done while the person is sedated.

Getting Sperm Ready

  • Preparing the Sperm Sample: The man’s sperm sample will be cleaned and made ready to be injected. This is done by picking and sorting the sperm based on shape and quality.
  • Injecting the Sperm: A microscope and other tools for micromanipulation will be used to insert a healthy sperm into each developed egg. This is often done on the same day that the eggs are collected.
  • Getting pregnant and raising embryos

  • Fertilization: After fertilizing the eggs, they will be grown in a special lab for three to five days.
  • Monitoring: The babies’ growth and development will be closely watched to ensure they are doing well.
  • Procedure for Embryo Transfer: A thin catheter moves one or two eggs into the woman’s uterus. This process usually doesn’t hurt and only takes 10 to 15 minutes.

Care After Treatment

  • Progesterone pills: The woman will be given progesterone pills to help with the early stages of pregnancy and implantation.
  • Take it easy: She will be advised to rest for a few days and avoid strenuous activities.
  • Pregnancy Test: Ten to fourteen days after the egg transfer, a pregnancy test will be done to make sure the treatment works.
