Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

For eggs to be successfully fertilised in IVF, at least 100,000 motile sperm need to be present in each petri dish with the egg.

In men with low sperm count, low motility or other quality issues, IVF would not lead to a good chance of the eggs being fertilised. In these cases ICSI is recommended. This is when a single healthy normal looking sperm is injected into each egg.

ICSI may also be recommended in cases of unexplained infertility, when there has been a low fertilisation in previous IVF cycles or if DNA fragmentation levels in sperm are high.

“Our baby girl was born in December and without our ICSI procedure, we wouldn’t have become parents. To us she is an absolute miracle.”
