Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) used to treat male infertility problems when little or no sperm is ejaculated in the semen. It enhances the fertilization stage of in-vitro fertilization or IVF by injecting a sperm into a mature egg. The fertilized egg is then placed in a woman’s uterus.

At Yash IVF, our doctors may advise ICSI to males with low sperm count and/or low sperm motility even after repeated success of IVF.

ICSI is likely to be recommended if you have
  • Zero sperm count or low sperm count
  • High percentage of abnormally shaped sperms resulting in poor motility
  • Erectile dysfunction due to spinal cord injuries or diabetes
  • Sperms that cannot be ejaculated but can be collected from the duct where it is stored
