Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a process that includes injection of sperm into eggs. It is a process which falls in the 5 step processes of IVF also known as In Vitro Fertilization.
Summarizing this process into five simple steps, it can be said that a sperm which is ready to be injected is captured by the help of a hollow needle which then inserted in shell of an egg which leads it to the cytoplasm of the egg. After doing this, eggs are simply checked and kept under observation for normal fertilization. Once it is proven that ICSI is successful, it is then proceed to the embryo transfer to simply let it grow like a normal embryo.
Pregnancy through this process is determined by usual pregnancy tests and blood tests and safekeeping of the forming baby through regular check ups and usual ultrasounds etc.
ICSI in Dubai is usually suggested by fertility clinics in Dubai to those patients or couples who are dealing with male infertility which is usually caused by low sperm count, slow movement of sperm or sperm’s ability which lacks in penetrating an egg in a woman’s uterus.
Another reason why ICSI may be recommended is azoospermia. There are two different types of azoospermia which are obstructive azoospermia and non-obstructive azoospermia. This is a condition when there are no sperms found in male ejaculation.
The most cost effective option of azoospermia is when there is low sperm count or low motility then sperm can be collected through usual ejaculation.
The risks of ICSI are that the pregnancies maybe affected and can cause premature birth or imprinting defects which can then lead to several other problems. Like with premature birth comes low risk of life and some dysfunctionalities such as low height factors, premature development of a few organs which can then lead to long never ending dependence on parents and machinery objects to survive.
These risks and complications vary differently on each person and how their development and body reacts. Before getting into any kind of process, consultancy of doctors and live experienced people is highly suggested to avoid some unknown factors.
There are few risks involved as well, but once you pass the high end and reach towards the end, it is surely going to be a fruitious treat.
