ICSI stands for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. It is a specialized technique used in assisted reproductive technology (ART) to help couples who are struggling with infertility to conceive a child.

In simpler terms, ICSI is a method used when a man's sperm has difficulty fertilizing an egg on its own. It is often used in cases where the man has a low sperm count, poor sperm motility (movement), or abnormal sperm shape.

What is ICSI?

ICSI stands for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. It is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedure used in conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF). During ICSI, a single sperm is directly injected into an egg to facilitate fertilization.

What are the success rates of ICSI?

The success rates of ICSI vary depending on several factors, including the age of the woman, the quality of the eggs and sperm, and the expertise of the fertility clinic. Generally, ICSI has comparable success rates to traditional IVF, with an average success rate per cycle ranging from 30% to 40% for women under 35.

Can ICSI be used with frozen eggs or sperm?

Yes, ICSI can be used with both fresh and frozen eggs and sperm. Frozen eggs and sperm can be thawed and used in conjunction with ICSI during an IVF cycle.

How is ICSI performed?

ICSI involves the use of a specialized micromanipulation technique. A single sperm is carefully selected. Using a tiny needle, the sperm is then injected directly into the cytoplasm of the egg, bypassing the need for sperm to naturally penetrate the egg.

Does ICSI increase the risk of birth defects or genetic abnormalities?

The absolute risk remains relatively low and within acceptable limits. Genetic counseling and preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) may be recommended in certain cases to further assess and reduce the risk.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with ICSI?

ICSI is generally safe, but like any medical procedure, it carries some risks. These can include damage to the egg or embryo during the injection process.
