INTRACYTOPLASMIC SPERM INJECTION (ICSI)

A single sperm can be injected into the egg using special microscopic needles. This technique can assist couples with very low sperm counts. Even partners who have no sperm in the semen but can have sperm retrieved from the testes by testicular biopsy will benefit from ICSI. Ovulation induction, egg retrieval and embryo transfer is identical to IVF.
