ICSI (MICROINJECTION)

Nicosia IVF Centre


Microinjection is an IVF method that is used when the sperm count and mobility are low and when there is sperm morphology and it is performed by placing the male’s sperm into the female’s cytoplasm in her egg. It is also known as "Intra - Cytoplasmatic Sperm Injection" (ICSI).

Under Which Circumstances Is It Used?

  • In cases where no fertilisation has occured in previous IVF trials and when the fertility rate is low
  • In cases where surgical procedures such as TESA/TESE are required to obtain sperm
  • Poor sperm parameters

Many IVF centers have started using ICSI method along with IVF methods because of its high success rates.
