Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, also known as ICSI, is a technique incorporated into IVF infertility treatment in situations where the male partner suffers from any of the following:
ICSI is designed to allow fertilization by ensuring that sperm penetrate the eggs retrieved during the first stages of in vitro fertilization. This is achieved by a micromanipulation process, which involves isolating a single sperm and injecting it directly into the egg. Unlike traditional IVF, where the sperm and egg are mixed together in the hopes that “natural” fertilization will occur, ICSI goes one step further to help sperm successfully penetrate each egg.
Approximately half of all IVF infertility treatments involve ICSI. At our New York practice, also serving New Jersey, Connecticut, and beyond, success rates for IVF cycles with ICSI are similar to success rates for traditional IVF cycles. ICSI does not guarantee fertilization. The advantage of ICSI is that it allows fertilization in cases where the sperm is unable to penetrate the egg without help. ICSI allows conception in cases where the male partner previously would have been unable to father children.
