If the quality of a man’s sperm is affected, the ICSI procedure is possibly the only way to achieve a successful fertilisation and conception.
We will follow the normal stages of IVF treatment and, once we have collected the eggs, we will perform the ICSI procedure. First, we collect sperm either through an ejaculated sample or testicular biopsy procedure and then select the healthiest sperm. A single sperm is then injected directly into the egg with a microscopic injection needle to enable fertilisation. This differs from conventional IVF, in which the semen is mixed with an egg and left to fertilise naturally.
After that, IVF treatment follows the usual stages; the embryos are developed in the laboratory and then implanted in the uterus.
