ICSI

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) ICSI stands for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection.

ICSI may be performed due to failed fertilization with IVF or male infertility such as low count, low motility and poor quality of sperm. In cases with no sperm in the ejaculate due to a blockage, sperm aspiration or testicular biopsy may be performed to retrieve the sperm for ICSI.

ICSI is currently the most successful form of micro manipulative assisted fertilization available for male factor infertility.

Who needs ICSI? We use ICSI in conjunction with an IVF cycle when we believe that fertilisation is unlikely to occur using only conventional IVF. Most typically, ICSI is appropriate when there is a male factor to your infertility.

We might recommend ICSI when: Reasons for ICSI - Indications for Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection.

  • Sperm completely absent from the ejaculate (azoospermia)
  • The number of sperm is low
  • Sperm present in low concentrations (oligospermia).
  • Poor sperm motility (asthenospermia)
  • High number of abnormal sperm
  • Poor sperm morphology (teratospermia)
  • Sperm retrieved by surgical techniques (for example TESA, TESE)
  • Problems with sperm binding to and penetrating the egg
  • Antisperm antibodies
  • Previous failed or poor fertilization
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Frozen sperm limited in quantity
  • If preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is being used to screen embryos for a specific genetic disorder

ICSI Treatment Procedure - What happens at the Clinic?

Your treatment cycle is exactly the same, both before and after egg collection, as for conventional IVF. The only difference is that our embryologists use micro-manipulation techniques in the laboratory to fertilise your eggs, instead of placing sperm and eggs together in a tissue culture dish. One cycle of ICSI takes between four weeks and six weeks to complete.
