ICSI is an advanced fertility treatment procedure and is performed by Morpheus in-house Embryologists who are highly skilled in the micro-manipulation technique. This technique is performed under a powerful microscope with magnification up to 400 times. A single egg of the woman is injected with a single sperm of the man. The fertilization rates of ICSI are better than IVF as it bypasses the natural fertilization process. This procedure is highly advantageous in qualitative and quantitative defect of sperm/egg.
ICSI is advised to couples having the following medical conditions :
|Husband has||Wife has|
|Low sperm count (Oligospermia)||Endometriosis (moderate to severe)|
|No sperm (Azoospermia)||Poor Ovarian Reserve|
|Low motility of sperms (Asthenozoospermia)||Premature Menopause (Premature Ovarian Failure) (ICSI with donor eggs)|
|Bad morphology (Teratozoospermia)||Unexplained Infertility|
In cases where there are no sperms in the semen (Azoospermia), sperms can be retrieved surgically from the testes or male ducts with procedures such as PESA, TESA or TESE.
