How is ICSI performed?
At NRM, experienced embryologists perform ICSI under a microscope. While stabilizing a mature egg, a single, immobilized sperm is directly injected through the zona pellucida or “shell” of the egg into the inner part of the oocyte (cytoplasm). The sperm is then released into the oocyte. The following day, the eggs are inspected for normal fertilization.
Who should consider ICSI?
- Individuals with male factor infertility and/or previously failed IUI
- Individuals utilizing donor eggs
- Individuals utilizing eggs previously preserved via vitrification (flash- frozen)
- Individuals utilizing donor sperm for IVF
- Individuals utilizing surgically-collected and/or previously frozen sperm
- Individuals with previous failed standard fertilization during an IVF cycle
- Individuals with unexplained infertility
