Fertility Treatment using ICSI Procedure

Infertility is rampant among the new generation couples. It is not just the females who fall prey to this but also the men. Male infertility is on a steady incline. In recent times there seem to be more couples with male infertility issues visiting fertility clinics than those with female fertility problems.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is quite a common topic as many couples have no choice but to seek fertility assistance to plan a family. Visiting a fertility specialist is the first step towards admitting that they have a problem and need help regarding fertility.

How do you know if you are infertile? This is a very pertinent question. When a couple decides to have a baby, they do not go for a fertility test at the onset to check if everything is okay and if they are in the clear for making a baby. Planning a baby is a very private matter for a couple. When they decide that they want to have a baby, they indulge in unprotected sex. If they have been using any contraceptives like the pill or intrauterine devices, these are removed. Some women keep track of their cycle and mark out the fertile days as the important ones to have sex on.

Making a baby can take time and doesn’t happen as instantly as we would like. After a year or two of trying if they have not been able to conceive, they visit a gynaecologist to check the status of the female fertility. If that is clear, then the male fertility tests are conducted. Today with an increase in male fertility issues, it is necessary to check if the male partner is the one responsible for them not being able to conceive.

Once the reason for not being able to conceive is ascertained, then the next step is to decide on the treatment. There are some treatments and procedures for assisted reproduction treatment that have become very popular and are now being used extensively. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is one such treatment that helps with cases of severe male infertility.

The Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection procedure is one of the best fertility treatments for male infertility and has an 80% fertilisation success rate. The ICSI treatment eliminates the need for the sperm to do any work such as finding the egg or even working towards penetrating it. One healthy and active sperm is selected and injected directly into the female egg in the lab.

Males who have a very low sperm count are still able to get by with treatments like Intrauterine Insemination (IUI). But in cases of poor sperm quality, especially poor sperm motility, the IUI procedure is not very successful, and one should opt for IVF.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is especially useful for those males who have minimal or no sperm production at all. In the event that few sperm can be recovered from them, these can be used to fertilise the egg directly. Retrieving sperm from a male with no sperm production could involve a surgical procedure to find the sperm.

The ICSI procedure involves injecting one healthy sperm directly into the egg. It eliminates the two most common reasons for the failure of egg fertilization. One reason is the inability of the sperm to penetrate the outer layer of the egg to get in, and the second is that it is able to get in but not able to fertilise the egg. The ICSI procedure selects a healthy, active sperm to increase the probability of fertilisation success.

In some cases where a man has undergone irreversible vasectomy, the sperm can be collected from the testes for the ICSI procedure. This procedure has made it possible for infertile men to successfully have babies even though they have major complications that inhibit the procedure of baby-making.
