What Is ICSI?
What is Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)?In case of male fertility issues, an intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is the most helpful. It involves injecting live sperm into a person’s eggs in a laboratory which helps create an embryo. A form of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure, ICSI promotes fertilization through the direct injection of a single sperm into a single egg. Like IVF, in ICSI as well, the doctor implants the fertilized egg into the uterus. Pregnancy occurs if the embryo attaches to the lining of your uterus.

First step towards infertility is correct diagnosis and NOT treatment.
An ICSI is recommended in cases of male infertility when the man is unable to ejaculate, has blockage in the reproductive system, low sperm count, etc.
A few complications can occur with ICSI which are as follows:
- There can be damage to some or all the eggs during needle penetration
- An egg may not fertilize after the sperm injection
- An embryo may stop developing in the lab or after embryo transfer
ICSI benefits those with male infertility to a greater degree than traditional IVF.
