What is ICSI?
ICSI means injection of the sperm into the middle of the egg.
ICSI is an effective method to fertilize the egg.
As with IVF, the ovaries are first stimulated by injections and eggs are retrieved.IVF with ICSI involves the use of specialised micromanipulator and an inverted microscope that enables embryologists to pick up individual sperms in a tiny specially designed hollow ICSI needle. The needle is then carefully advanced through the outer shell of the egg and egg membrane and the sperm is then injected into the inner part (cytoplasm) of the egg.
