ICSI CheshireWhat is ICSI?

ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is a technique used in conjunction with conventional IVF. All aspects of an ICSI cycle are the same as  an IVF cycle apart from the fertilisation process.

How does it work?

With IVF a portion of sperm is added to the eggs and left overnight to fertilise using natural mechanisms. With ICSI, a single sperm is selected and injected directly into an egg, bypassing the natural fertilisation process.

Why is ICSI used?

ICSI is used when a problem or potential problem with the sperm to be used in an IVF cycle has been identified. These can include low sperm count, poor sperm quality or motility, the presence of antisperm antibodies, a previous history of failed fertilisation in IVF or cases where the sperm has been surgically retrieved.
