Let's get you the "Best ICSI Treatment in Delhi" with Omya Fertility

Infertility can be extremely challenging and a result of countless known or unknown factors. With the advancement in fertility treatments such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection and in vitro fertilisation, which can help couples fulfill their long-cherished dream of parenthood.

Let’s Introduce you

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI, is a procedure which is performed in vitro fertilisation (IVF) in which the embryologist identifies a morphological normal sperm and directly injects into the cytoplasm of an egg. ICSI is performed with the purpose of fertilising the gametes for the obtention of embryos that can then be transferred to the female uterus.

This technique was originally developed for providing assistance to couples who have been unable to fertilise in their previous in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempts or when the infertility is because of several reasons mainly male factors. The ICSI procedure overcomes many fertilisation barriers and helps the woman achieve a successful pregnancy and the couples to attain parenthood.

Are You Wondering
Who needs it & Why?

ICSI is recommended to couples in the following conditions:

The sperm is unable to move normally.

  • The sperm count is very low or very few sperms are produced by the male partner to perform IVF or artificial insemination (intrauterine insemination [IUI]).
  • Sperm is retrieved directly from the testicles (TESA), epididymis (PESA), or from the urine, or by electro-ejaculation.
  • The semen has high levels of antibodies.
  • IVF treatments in the past have resulted in failed fertilisation (TFF).
  • Sperm is characterised by a high rate of abnormality ( teratozoospermia)
  • The sperm may have difficulty getting attached to the egg. Especially if the acrosome is missing in sperms which is responsible for binding to zona of oocyte. Globozooospermia is a strong indicator for ICSI.
  • When in vitro matured eggs are being used(IVM).
  • Eggs have not been fertilised by the traditional IVF procedure, irrespective of the condition of the sperm.
  • Previously frozen eggs are being used.
  • Some cases of unexplained infertility.
  • Where a man who previously had a vasectomy wants to start a new family and has undergone PESA or TESA.

ICSI treatment Procedure
Different for Men & Women?

The ICSI procedure requires the female partner to undergo ovarian stimulation while being administered fertility medications on a regular basis. This is done with a predefined purpose to develop several mature eggs that are later aspirated through the female’s overy using vaginal ultrasound. It is then incubated under specific conditions in an embryology laboratory. The semen sample is later prepared by centrifuging or spinning the sperm cells using a special medium. This separates live sperm from most of the dead sperm and debris. Thereafter, the single live morphologically normal sperm is picked by the embryologist in a ICSI injection needle and then injected directly into the egg.

Step-by-step Procedure for ICSI

A single egg matures every month in a normal ovulation cycle. The primary objective of 1an ICSI cycle is to fertilise as many mature eggs as possible as it will increase the chances of achieving pregnancy through the treatment. For this, ovarian stimulation is required. It is worthwhile to note here that the eggs being stimulated would have died or grown that month. Therefore, ovarian stimulation does not deplete the ovaries for the future

Step 1-Ovary Stimulation

In the first step of the ICSI procedure, ovaries are stimulated using injectable medications for about 10 to 12 days so that they can produce many eggs. Luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which are naturally produced within the body, comprise injectable medications. During this stimulation phase, the woman will be asked to visit the clinic everyday for injections and for monitoring so that the fertility specialist can track the progress of egg growth and blood estradiol levels and make adjustments to the medications if required.

The trigger injection is the final step in this treatment’s stimulation phase. The woman will receive either a buserelin or human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) trigger depending on her individual protocol. This injection will assist the developing eggs to complete the process of maturation and set the woman’s ovulation in motion. The timing of this procedure is critical as the fertility specialist is required to perform the process of egg retrieval before the expected time of ovulation.

Step 2-Egg Retrieval

The fertility specialist will perform the procedure of egg retrieval as part of the ICSI treatment. The woman will meet an anaesthetist who will evaluate her medical history and records before administering the anaesthesia for the procedure which will last for 20 minutes.

Obtaining the sperm: A member of the embryology team will visit the couple if a fresh sperm sample is to be used. If a sperm collected previously as a frozen sperm sample is to be used, the details of them will be verified by the embryologist. Thereafter, the sperm will be “washed and prepared” by the andrology laboratory. This helps in bringing together the healthiest sperm with the eggs for fertilisation after the successful completion of egg retrieval process .

Obtaining the eggs: The process of egg retrieval takes approximately 20 to 25 minutes. During this duration, the fertility specialist as part of the ICSI treatment will guide a needle into each ovary for removing the egg-containing fluid in the follicles with the help of ultrasound guidance . Recovery will take approximately 25-30 minutes and the woman can then go back home after observation after a few hours. It is highly recommended that a responsible adult or her life partner accompanies her as it is not safe to drive under the influence of anaesthesia.

Step 3-Fertilisation

The embryologist will prepare the sperm and eggs after the process of egg retrieval is completed. The embryologist will prepare special dishes under a microscope, a highly trained and skilled embryologist will inject morphological normal sperm into each mature egg under high magnification with inverted microscope and special instrument known as Micromanipulator .

Step 4-Embryo Development

Embryo development starts after fertilisation.
Over the course of the following 5 days, the embryologist will continue to evaluate each developing embryo. The purpose of this is to examine progressive development with a two- to four-cell embryo on day 2 and a six- to eight-cell embryo on day 3. Rapid cell division continues after the eight-cell stage. The embryo will then enter into what is referred to as the blastocyst stage at day 5 . The fertility specialist will then transfer the highest-quality embryo(s) into the woman so that she has the best chances of conceiving.

Step 5-Embryo Transfer

The simple procedure of embryo transfer takes only 5-7 minutes to complete. There is no associated recovery time or requirement of anaesthesia. The nurse will arrange for the embryo transfer and notifies the woman (the aspirant mother) with instructions on when to arrive and how to prepare for embryo transfer. The woman will be asked to come with a full bladder as it will ensure good visualisation of the lining of the uterus and will facilitate proper placement of the embryos. For this, it is advised to consume a good amount of liquids 30-40 minutes ahead of time. The aspirant mother will be informed about the quality and the number of embryos recommended for transfer evaluated by the fertility specialist.

The embryologist will confirm her name and the number of embryos for transfer after she has entered the embryo transfer room. The embryologist will then initiate the task of loading the transfer catheter with the embryo(s) in the embryology lab. The fertility specialist will then insert the catheter into the female uterus. Thereafter, the embryo(s) will be pushed through with a small amount of fluid. Visual guidance through a monitor will be accessed through an external abdominal ultrasound so that the doctor can monitor the entire procedure. The catheter is removed after the embryo(s) is transferred.

Since the naked eye cannot view the embryo, the catheter will be examined by the embryologist under a microscope to make sure the embryo has been released from it. The doctor will thereafter offer instructions to the aspirant mother for the following two weeks before it is time for the pregnancy test.

Step 6-The Pregnancy Test

You will be asked to take a pregnancy test two weeks after the embryo transfer has taken place. The blood test is usually known as a “beta hcg” as it measures the hCG hormone’s beta chain portion emitted by the developing embryo. The result of the pregnancy test is required to be communicated by the aspirant mother to the fertility clinic or the fertility specialist so that the next steps can be planned.

What Could be the
Benefits of ICSI

  • ICSI enhances the fertilisation rate to increase the number of available embryos for transfer into the female uterus or for freezing.
  • It is an excellent treatment for male factor infertility: In cases in which couples are having difficulty conceiving due in part or in whole to male factor infertility, ICSI has been highly effective.
  • It can improve the chances of successful fertilization among patients who have had poor IVF results in the past.
  • ICSI can result in successful fertilisation as long as viable sperm can be obtained. If viable sperm is available, the success rate of this fertility procedure remains unaffected by the sperm quality and semen characteristics.

Is it Worth it?
What’s the Success Rate?

Fertilisation rates of 80 to 85 per cent (of all mature eggs injected) that is equivalent to that of fertilisation with normal sperm can be expected.
