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 treatments.


Female 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.
