What is ICSI?
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI- pronounced ick-see) is an IVF procedure, where a single sperm cell is injected directly into the cytoplasm of the egg. This reduces the dependence on the strength and motility of the sperm. Nearly half of all IVF treatments involve ICSI, since it is the most successful treatment for male infertility. ICSI increases the chance of pregnancy because it maximizes the change of fertilization by eliminating any issues for the sperm’s ability to reach the egg.
