ICSI ( Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection ) fertility treatment is one of the most successful treatments for men, who have been diagnosed as being infertile. The procedure is gaining popularity and is used in as many as 50% of the IVF treatments undertaken.

How Can ICSI Treatment Help?

The ICSI fertility treatment is used when the sperm cannot fertilize the egg. With the help of this procedure, the sperms are directly injected into the eggs, to fertilize them, so that fertilization is not left to chance.

When is ICSI Fertility Treatment Recommended?

  • The treatment is usually recommended when the male partner has very low or even zero sperm count
  • If there is a high percentage of abnormally shaped and formed sperms. Since these sperms can have low motility and low fertility, this procedure increases the likelihood of fertilization
  • We also use ICSI when an earlier IVF cycle has failed
