ICSI or intracytoplasmic sperm injection is one of the forms of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that is used to treat the infertility problems that arise due to defect in the sperm. To be specific, the fertilization that occurs through IVF is enhanced with the help of intracytoplasmic sperm injection. After completion of the process of fertilization, the egg is then placed in the uterus. At Manjunath C S Fertility Hospitals, the best laboratory experts and Doctor see to it that every ICSI ends in success.
Why is ICSI done?
ICSI is done if the sperm concentration or motility are low or if poor fertilisation had been achieved previously in IVF. Even if the problem that you are facing is not related to the quantity or quality of sperm, then to ICSI can be employed.
If you are trying to see whether the embryo has any genetic problems, ICSI can be used to do that. For each egg, only one sperm is used. So the main problem that happens with genetic tests, that is contamination, has no chances with ICSI.
