What is Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)?

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a specialised form of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) that is used primarily for the treatment of severe cases of male-factor infertility. ICSI involves the injection of a single sperm directly into a mature egg.

In ICSI, a single sperm is collected using a hollow needle and then it is inserted into a single egg held in a pipette. The ability of the sperm to penetrate the egg is unimportant as this has been assisted by the ICSI technique. One then waits for fertilization to take place naturally. The fertilized egg is then transferred to the womb.

Who is suitable for ICSI?

This procedure is suitable in situations where the failure to conceive is primarily due to male infertility factors. These include low sperm counts, poor movement of sperms, poor sperm quality, or the lack of the ability of the sperm to penetrate the egg.

This procedure is also suitable for those who suffer from azoospermia or the condition in which sperms are not present in the male’s ejaculation.

What does ICSI involve?

From a patient perspective, undergoing an ICSI treatment cycle is exactly the same as a conventional IVF cycle. Patients should however be aware of the risks associated with ICSI.

  • Stimulation of the ovaries to encourage development and maturation of the eggs
  • Retrieval of the eggs
  • Fertilization of the eggs and culture of the embryos
  • Transfer of the embryos back into the uterus.
  • These steps are described more fully under IVF.
