All You Need To Know About Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)!

All You Need To Know About Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)!

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection i.e. ICSI is different from conventional IVF i.e. In Vitro Fertilization because a single sperm is selected by the embryologist to be injected by a needle into the egg rather than a dish with many sperms placed near the egg so that the fastest swimming sperm enters it. Once the sperm is injected directly into the egg, it fertilizes, after which the embryo is transferred into the womb or uterus. 

Your doctor might recommend ICSI treatment for you if you have an extremely low sperm count resulting in infertility or other medical sperm conditions such as poor motility or poor morphology. It may also be suggested if prior attempts at IVF procedures have failed in fertilizing the egg or the fertilization rate is extremely low. You must also consider ICSI treatment if you resort to embryo testing or if the sperm needs to be collected from the epididymis or testicles surgically. 

However, you must keep in mind that if your partner has a genetic problem resulting in low sperm count, it could be passed on to your child, if you decide to use your husband's sperm for this process.

Success Rates of ICSI:
The success rate of ICSI treatment depends on your age and your fertility problem. Your eggs are healthier when you are young and as you age, chances are that they will become less healthy.
1. 35 percent if you are under 35 years of age
2. 29 percent if you are between 35 to 37 years of age
3. 21 percent if you are between 38 to 39 years of age
4. 14 percent if you are between 40 to 42 years of age
5. 6 percent if you are between 43 to 44 years of age
6. 5 percent if you are above 44 years of age

Advantages of ICSI Treatment:
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection gives you a chance to conceive a child genetically when most other options are exhausted. Males may be unable to ejaculate on the day the eggs are collected due to anxiety. ICSI proves to be advantageous because sperm may also be surgically extracted for this process. It is extremely helpful for those couples who suffer from unexplained infertility. However, one of the most important factors is that ICSI treatment does not affect your child's physical or mental health.

IVF Treatment - Your Egg Quality Will It Affect The success Rate?

IVF Treatment - Your Egg Quality Will It Affect The success Rate?

The concept of egg quality of a woman is derived from the belief that the embryo implantation probability is powerfully related to the age and ovarian reserve of the woman. Thus, it is regarded that the quality of the egg is almost synonymous with the chances of embryo implantation. Its quality cannot be assessed merely by looking at the egg or measuring its ability to receive the fertilization by sperm or simply observing the initial embryo division.

There are a few important factors that contribute to the success or failure of the embryo implantation and some of them are:

  1. Diminished ovarian reserve: A woman with an increased FSH level on the third day of the menses is regarded as having diminished reserve of the ovary. This implies that her ovary is not competent in sending feedback signals to the pituitary gland and the body responds by producing an increased amount of FSH for stimulating the ovary. For more than 10 years, it has been found that in over thousands of fertility treatment cycles, women with an increased FSH level have a lower egg quality.
  2. The advanced age of maternity: Even though the FSH level is normal, the age of the mother who provides the eggs plays an important role to determine the quality of the egg. Quite like women with increased FSH levels, eggs obtained from women aged more than 35 years can have some problems at a later stage of fertilization. Normal FSH levels are not considered a reassuring factor, owing to the lower implantation rate in females aged over 40 years.
  3. Diminished quality of egg: With an increase in age, the capacity of the mitochondria in producing energy slowly decreases. The egg is linked to the circulation before ovulation, and it is linked again after the embryo implantation. But during the one week time ranging from ovulation to implantation, the egg and the resulting embryo are contained in the zona pellucida and function on the basis of mitochondrial energy supply. The older age of the woman doesn’t cause any problem at the initial stage of ovulation. Its fertilization and embryonic development are also normal. But soon, it runs out of energy and stops dividing before reaching the stage of implantation.
  4. Importance of Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH): Women with normal AMH values tend to have a good response to ovarian stimulation and have more eggs retrieved. Generally, having a higher number of eggs improves the success rate of IVF because clinicians are more likely to have at least one high quality embryo available for transfer back to the uterus. Having a high AMH level, however, run the risk of ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome (OHSS), which is a life-threatening condition. But women with a low AMH are not likely to respond well to in vitro fertilization and can, therefore, be offered appropriate counselling or alternative treatment options.

Therefore, it is important to have the eggs tested to find out any sort of chromosomal abnormality. In case the mother is deficient of producing high-quality eggs, the best option is to have donor eggs.

Hello, you do need to go to your doctor. Get basic examination done which will include your bmi, physical examination, baseline ultrasound, some blood tests if required. Also it would be a good idea to get your husband's semen analysis done. Please do not take any medicines without consulting your doctor.

Hi, kindly get your baseline ultrasound done. Start following a healthy lifestyle, avoid fatty foods and processed sugar, walk 45 min per day. You should visit your gynaecologist for treatment specific to your requirements.
