ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) Treatment
What is ICSI treatment ?
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) stands as an advanced assisted reproductive technique designed to address male infertility. It represents a sophisticated variant of in vitro fertilization (IVF), wherein a single sperm is precisely injected into an egg to enhance the fertilization process. ICSI proves especially advantageous for couples grappling with male factor infertility, characterized by challenges in sperm quality, quantity, or motility.

The ICSI Treatment Process at Benecare Hospital:
Begin your journey with an initial consultation led by one of our fertility specialists. During this session, your medical history will be thoroughly examined, essential tests will be conducted, and various treatment options will be discussed.
The man will have to submit semen sample into a cup or the sperm will have to be surgically retrieved. There are a number of different ways the sperm may be retrieved. In some cases, the sperm retrieval procedure may be performed earlier and the sperm may be frozen.
Injection of Sperm into Egg:
Once retrieved the semen sample is washed and a single sperm is isolated. This is then injected into an egg with a very fine hollow needle. Since the sperm is injected directly, it bypasses the need to swim through the cervical fluid. It can take a sperm up to 24 hours to fertilize an egg and create an embryo.
Monitoring the Embryo:
The fertilized embryos are kept in a lab for up to 6 days. During this time they are monitored for signs of growth and development. Not all the fertilized embryos will be transferred to the woman’s uterus. Hence this step is essential to pick out the healthiest and most viable embryos.
Transfer of Embryos:
Once the embryo has reached a certain stage of development, one or two embryos are selected and transferred to the woman’s womb using an ultrasound-guided catheter. This may happen 2 days after fertilization or 5 days after fertilization.
Pregnancy Test & Follow up:
Roughly two weeks post-embryo transfer, a pregnancy test will be administered to ascertain the success of the procedure. In the event of a successful pregnancy, our team will offer continuous support and monitoring, striving for the optimal outcome for both you and your baby.
