Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
This procedure involves selection of best sperm under a high power microscope & injecting a single sperm into each egg. Some treatments are specifically for men or women including drugs, assisted reproductive technology, and surgery. ICSI may be recommended when there is a reason that fertilization may be difficult. ICSI is most often used with male infertility factors as such low sperm counts, poor motility or movement of the sperm, poor sperm quality, sperm that cannot penetrate an egg. Infertility in men occurs due to alcohol and drug use, toxins, smoking, age, obesity, medicines like testosterone, radiation, excessive testicular heat, and chemotherapy. ICSI also helps some couples when a female is not able to conceive.
