Experience personalised Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection treatment with itrust fertility

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection or ICSI is an assisted reproductive treatment conducted as an additional step to IVF. During the procedure, a single sperm is artificially injected into a mature egg to develop into an embryo. Once the embryos are formed, they are transferred to the uterus.

If you are experiencing difficulties in conceiving naturally due sperm related-infertility or have gone through an unsuccessful in-vitro fertilisation cycle, you may have a higher chance of achieving pregnancy via the Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) treatment.

At itrust fertility, the attentive and personalised care and continuous monitoring of our dedicated and experienced specialists have yielded a high success rate with the ICSI procedure. Consult with our specialists to learn if ICSI is a suitable option to increase your chance of achieving pregnancy.

When is an ICSI procedure needed?

When is an ICSI procedure needed?

During the fertilisation process, male sperms attach to a female egg and penetrate through the cytoplasm—the outer layer of the egg. We replicate this process with our IVF procedure by placing up to 50000 sperm near a female egg in a controlled environment in a fertility lab. 

During the fertilisation process, male sperms attach to a female egg and penetrate through the cytoplasm—the outer layer of the egg. We replicate this process with our IVF procedure by placing up to 50000 sperm near a female egg in a controlled environment in a fertility lab. 

In some instances, however, the sperm may not penetrate the cytoplasm if it’s thicker than normal or the sperm isn’t healthy and can’t attach itself to the egg. In such scenarios, you may need an ICSI procedure to fertilise the eggs.

You may also need an ICSI procedure due to the following reasons:

WHAT TO EXPECT

The process

I Trust Fertility - website icons - SSR Treatment

Sperm collection

This involves collecting male sperm using natural or surgical methods. Our specialists will only perform a surgical procedure if sperm can’t be collected by natural means due to blockages that prevent sperm from being ejaculated or other issues related to sperm development.

I Trust Fertility - website icons - Egg freezing

Ovulation and egg collection

This is done via ovulation stimulating drugs like gonadotropin or follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) that stimulate the ovaries to produce more follicles. You may need to take these drugs for two weeks continuously before follicles can be collected. Once follicles are fully developed into eggs, an additional gonadotropin shot will be administered and eggs will be collected 34-36 hours later. Our specialists will monitor your health throughout the process to check for side effects to the drugs, which some women may experience.

Injecting the sperm

Once the eggs are collected, our specialists will inject the eggs with the collected sperms. Each egg is injected with a single sperm and left for up to five days to become an embryo before they are transferred to the uterus through the vagina. Our specialists will recommend the number of embryos to be transferred based on your age and health condition and the rest of the eggs will be frozen for future use.

Are there any risks involved with ICSI?

Stay informed

Are there any risks involved with ICSI?

Like all other treatment options, you should consider the risk factors involved with the ICSI procedure.

The risk factors associated with IVF are also present in the ICSI procedure because this is only an additional method to fertilise the eggs in the IVF procedure.

You may be at higher risk of conceiving multiple pregnancies if you’re considering ICSI. We try to avoid this by transferring only two embryos at a time and freezing other healthy embryos.

If you’re a woman, you may sometimes develop side effects to the ovulation stimulation drugs used in the ovulation and egg collection process.

Another leading risk associated with ICSI is the increased chance of male kids conceived through eggs fertilised by ICSI procedure inheriting the same fertility issues as the father.

You may also have a higher chance of miscarriages if you have chosen ICSI fertilisation over traditional IVF fertilisation.

If you have any questions related to the ICSI procedure, our specialists are always ready to speak to you and work with you to create a personalised ICSI treatment pathway to improve your chances of achieving pregnancy.
