ICSI is one of the methods of infertility treatment of men and women, which is quite actively used in modern reproductive medicine. Basically, the method is used to help the sperm meet with the egg and merge into a single organism. There is a more simplified procedure for artificial conception – IVF, but unlike eco, where two cells are placed in a test tube, male and female, the essence of ICSI is the forced introduction of a spermatozoon into the body of a female cell.
In many cases, a healthy and strong sperm cell can independently fertilize an egg. But there are cases of male infertility, where the spermatozoon, due to various circumstances, cannot do it alone.
To assess the strength of the male reproductive function, it is necessary to go through a sperm analysis. A man will be considered healthy if there are about twenty million spermatozoa in one milliliter of semen. At least one third of them must be of normal shape, strong and mobile. If the test results show a deviation from these standards, physicians resort to IVF.
The ICSI procedure is used in such cases of male infertility:
- Reducing the mobility of male cells;
- A large number of pathological cells in seminal fluid;
- The presence of antisperm antibodies in semen;
The ICSI procedure is applied in cases of female infertility:
- Received up to 4 eggs;
- Low percentage of oocytes in previous IVF programs.
The ICSI procedure is resorted to after an unsuccessful IVF procedure or in cases of very poor sperm quality. This method allows you to conceive a child even in very complex forms of male infertility, for example, when sperm do not fall outside. In such conditions, they do not survive, so you have to take them directly from their location – the testicles.
ICSI cost is relatively inexpensive, which is another indisputable advantage of this medical procedure. IVF international group offers a high quality treatment for all patients guaranteeing good results without extra expenses.
