A good number of couples in Bangalore
suffer from infertility problems. It is not only women who suffer from
infertility but men too. For every 40% of the cases of infertility, the man is
usually the sole cause, and in 20% cases he is considered a contributing cause.
This goes to mean that women are not solely to blame for infertility diagnosis
and that both partners should put in equal effort when seeking infertility
infertility Bangalore clinics are present that can treat the problem in a number
of ways. For instance, a couple or one of the partners can be prescribed
fertility drugs or undergo fertility surgery. Unfortunately, sometimes these
treatment methods fail to work and couples have to look for alternative
treatments. ICSI procedure Bangalore
is one of the alternative infertility treatments that couples can pursue. It
has proved effective for many couples who had problems conceiving.
So, what is ICSI?
It is part of In Vitro
Fertilization, a surgical female infertility procedure that helps couples
conceive through external fertilization. It is considered an effective method
for fertilizing eggs in the IVF laboratory after they have been removed from a
woman’s body. When is this alternative
treatment suitable? It is mostly used only in cases of low sperm motility and
male infertility. Poor motility is when
a male sperm is unable to swim well or when it cannot penetrate into the female
egg to cause fertilization. There are times when the male sperm can swim and
penetrate into the female egg but fail to cause fertilization for some reason; ICSI procedure Bangalore is usually
recommended and helpful.
How is the procedure performed?
During IVF, fertility drugs are
usually given to help stimulate the ovaries in order to develop a number of
mature eggs needed for fertilization. ICSI needs just a single sperm that is
directly injected into the female egg. The male partner can provide a sample
sperm on the same day that female eggs are being collected. If the doctors
cannot find any sperm in the semen, then he or she can extract sperm sample under
local anaesthesia. A fine needle is normally used to collect the sperm in this
case. The sperm sample obtained is then injected into the
egg where the sharp and hollow needle penetrates the shell and goes to the
centre of the female egg (Cytoplasm). The eggs are then checked the following
morning to confirm normal fertilization. An ICSI procedure Bangalore lasts between 4 to 6 weeks.
