In Vitro Fertilization (IVF),ICSI
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process of fertilization where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body, in vitro. In standard IVF, embryos are grown under very strictly controlled conditions in the laboratory for two or three days. They are then transferred into the woman’s uterus (womb) and any additional embryos can be frozen for future use.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
ICSI ( Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection ) fertility treatment is one of the most successful treatments for men, who have been diagnosed as being infertile. This procedure is gaining popularity and is used in as many as 50% of the IVF treatments which are undertaken. 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.
