ICSI-IVF is typically used in cases of severe male infertility, including: 2  Very low sperm count (also known as oligospermia) Abnormally shaped sperm (also known as teratozoospermia) Poor sperm movement (also known as asthenozoospermia). ICSI differs from IVF in one primary way. With IVF, fertility doctors mix many sperm together in a dish with a viable, healthy egg.

Typically, a healthy sperm then permeates the lining of the egg and fertilizes it. But with direct sperm injection, the fertilization process is more straightforward. In fact, a natural pregnancy also carries a certain small degree of risk with it so that apprehension should not hinder you from researching into this treatment option. The most commonly feared birth defect associated with ICSI is that of passing the male infertility down to a male child.

ICSI-IVF is a specialized form of in vitro fertilization, which is most commonly used in many cases where severe male infertility is after that many repeated failed fertilization attempts with conventional or sometimes unconventional IVF, or after the process of egg freezing (oocyte preservation). ICSI can also help couples that attempted IVF but had what’s known as “failed fertilization.” Failed fertilization happens when more than one. ICSI can increase IVF success rates but the procedure is not perfect. Here are some more common risks associated with ICSI.

IVF can also be performed with ICSI. The major birth defects seen in babies born via IVF and/or ICSI included heart defects and malformations of the urogenital tract, such as hypospadias (an. 11 Things You Should Know Before Considering IVF It’s the most effective treatment for infertility, but it’s no walk in the park. By Amy Marturana Winderl, C.P.T. IVF was the technique that was developed first and ICSI is a variation of this technique. From the viewpoint of a patient, not much changes with reference to scans, superovulation injections, blood tests, egg collection as well as the actual embryo transfer.

The only difference is that which takes place in the lab. ICSI is an acronym for intracellular sperm injection. It is performed as part of an IVF procedure.

In IVF without ICSI, eggs and sperm are combined in the embryology laboratory. A sperm cell will manage to pierce the wall of an egg and fertilize it.

  • My clinic called me today and said my 5 mature eggs were fertilized but developing very slow and it isn’t good And want to
    Wait til Tommorow to see if devolpment is any better? Have you ever heard of this? I’m so heart broken

  • Hey…could u please tell me how to have a full term delivery…i m hving bicornuate uterus in which one part has been removed due to non communicating rudimentary horn.
    I have done ivf,3 embryos has been transfered on 5th of this month.
    But on yestrdays scanning only one gestational sac is visible has the diameter of 0.58centi meter.Is it normal?

  • All the steps involved in ICSI are the same ones followed in a regular IVF treatment — except for the fertilization method. ICSI uses one only sperm cell for a single egg, while standard IVF (petri dish) needs hundreds of thousands.

    ICSI enables pregnancy to be achieved successfully in couples affected by severe male-factor infertility. The male partner provides a semen sample or undergoes a surgical retrieval procedure (for men who have little/no sperm in the semen or men who are not able to ejaculate). Best sperm cells are selected for fertilization purposes.

    Instead of merely combining the prepared eggs and sperm in a petri dish and waiting for fertilization to take place on its own, ICSI allows doctors to use powerful microscopes and precise equipment to select individual, healthy sperm cells and place them directly into each collected egg.

    ICSI has also proven to be very successful in cases of female infertility, like unexplained infertility, poor egg quality, low egg production, fertilization failure, or fertilization of cryopreserved eggs. Being a critical aspect of IVF success due to the high fertilization rate (90%), some clinics apply ICSI routinely in all IVF procedures.

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are two very similar assisted reproduction techniques, although they differ from each other and are indicated in different cases

  • Sometimes, a good number of eggs are retrieved, and sperm counts look healthy, but no eggs get fertilized. In this case, during the next IVF cycle, ICSI may be tried.

  • Clomid pills and IUI treatment is the max I would offer. This IVF ICSI thing looks too artificial. I am not surprised if IVF kids start to get cancer when they hit age 45.

  • I have appointment in Mexico for IVF+ICSI, we are very nervous!! Since my DH’s counts are very low our dr is recommending ICSI to assist the IVF process. Any info/tips/experience anyone can provide would be greatly appreciate!

  • Sometimes you can get pregnant through a normal IVF but sometimes you need an ICSI, specially when your male partner is the one who has infertility problems. We thought we may need an ICSI before going to Ingenes in Mexico, but we ended up with just a normal IVF and we finally had our baby.

Some clinics like Biotexcom provides their patients with full information about the procedure.

One of my good friend also become a mother through IVF. Biotexcom helps her a lot in her treatment. Biotexcom has the more positive review in the field of infertility treatment. Now she has a cute baby girl.

  • At this time, reports on the risk of congenital malformations associated with ICSI, compared to IVF have yielded conflicting results. A recent (2005) multi-center study based on data from 5-year-old children, suggests that ICSI is associated with a relatively small (4.2%) increased risk of certain major congenital anomalies. There also appears to be a higher prevalence of sex chromosome abnormalities in ICSI children compared to those conceived with IVF (0.2% versus 1% in ICSI offspring). Whether this is due to the ICSI procedure itself or to an increased rate of chromosome abnormalities in sperm from some infertile men is not clear. There are also some studies that report a higher incidence of a congenital malformation called hypospadias (urethra opening on underside of penis) in babies conceived through ICSI. Because some causes of male infertility are familial, and are related to genetic defects (e.g. Y-chromosome deletions) male offspring may inherit fertility problems. Therefore, patients with non-obstructive azoospermia or severe oligospermia (low sperm counts), who are likely candidates for genetic causes of infertility, should consider genetic counseling and karyotyping prior to ICSI. I did this during my treatment in Bio tex, and it worked.
