This technique allows couples with conceiving problems to be candidates for In Vitro Fertilization. We tell you more about it.
What is ICSI?
The Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a relatively new procedure that allows couples with severe infertility problems to be candidates for In Vitro Fertilization.
ICSI looks for the best quality sperm to achieve pregnancy, without having to resort to donor sperm.
Who is it recommended for?
It is advisable to use this technique when a man's semen sample presents:
Low sperm count (oligozoospermia)
Irregular motility and morphology (asthenozoospermia or teratozoospermia)
Absence of spermatozoa (azoospermia)
High fragmentation of sperm DNA
Sperm cells unable to fertilize an egg cell
It is also an effective alternative for female couples and single women to have a baby 100% of their own.
How is this done?
This technique was developed in 1992, and involves the injection of a single spermatozoon directly into the cytoplasm of a mature egg using a microscopic needle, taken from the semen sample.
If becoming a parent is your dream, we put this and more techniques at your disposal, as we have an expert team, as well as the best technology to do it, so you can be sure that you will be in good hands.
A single healthy sperm is injected directly into each mature egg to achieve fertilization, leading to In Vitro Fertilization, obtaining an embryo and then transferring it to the uterus.
