In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF and Microinjection Methods

In IVF method, sperm given by man and eggs taken from woman are brought together in a laboratory environment and self-fertilization is expected to take place.

Sperms with insufficient fertilizing capacity, lack of mobility and severe disfigurement cannot penetrate the egg by themselves and fertilization cannot be achieved. In such cases, a sperm is injected into an egg and fertilization is achieved. This procedure is called microinjection.

  • ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection)

    ICSI is a type of IVF treatment that involves the microinjection of a single sperm straight into each egg. The fertilised egg (embryo) can then be transferred into the womb of the woman as in a normal IVF cycle.

  • IMSI (Intracytoplasmic Morphology Selected Sperm Injection)

    IMSI is more effective than ICSI in infertile couples with male infertility factor. IMSI procedure had better clinical outcomes by improving embryo development. Therefore, IMSI is a method of choice for IVF patients with male infertility and poor embryo development in their earlier ICSI cycles.
