ICSI center in Mumbai, India

The first and Pioneering ICSI center in India since 1994.

Infertility can be caused by a variety of factors, Hence it is important to determine the best course of treatment. In cases of male infertility, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) treatment in Mumbai may be recommended. ICSI is a procedure where a single sperm is injected into an egg using very fine micromanipulation equipment. This can overcome the block to fertilisation due to the very low count, motility or morphology of the sperm. ICSI is an advanced form of IVF. The IVF treatment cycle includes ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval. It is important to consult with a fertility specialist to determine if ICSI is the right treatment for you.

Why do you need an ICSI Treatment?

Low Sperm Count: If you have a low sperm count, it may be difficult to fertilize an egg naturally. ICSI can help increase the chances of fertilization by injecting a single sperm directly into the egg.

 

Poor Semen Motility: Another reason for ICSI is if you have poor semen quality. Sperm with poor morphology (shape) or motility (movement) may have difficulty fertilizing an egg on their own. Injecting a single sperm into an egg bypasses the various blocks of fertilisation and allows for fertilization to occur as the sperm is injected into the body of the egg.

 

Previous vasectomy or a failed vasectomy reversal:  In these situations, ICSI would be the appropriate choice. The sperm would be collected from the epididymis or the testes.

 

The process of ICSI Treatment

Ovarian Stimulation: The female partner will be given medication to boost the development of follicles in their ovary starting usually on Day 2 of menses. The stimulation will continue till the follicles are ready with mature eggs.

Collection of sperms and their processing: Once the sample is collected by masturbation, it is handed over to the embryology laboratory where the embryologist will process it in the most gentle way to obtain viable and healthy sperm.

Egg Retrieval: The hormonal stimulation culminates with egg retrieval. The oocytes are collected under mild anaesthesia under transvaginal ultrasound guidance. 

Examination of the Eggs and the Sperm: The eggs and the sperm are examined under the microscope to determine their quality. Once that is assessed, they are prepared for the ICSI procedure.

Introduction of sperm into the egg: ICSI is carried out using a joystick, a micromanipulator system, and a microscope.  

Culture of the embryos: After fertilisation, the embryos are cultured in the warmth of the incubator for 3 to 5 days. 

Embryo transfer into the uterus: Once the embryos are ready, usually a single good-quality embryo is transferred into the uterus where it will implant.

How much does ICSI Treatment in India Cost?

The cost of an ICSI procedure depends on where you are located. The ICSI treatment in India can vary anywhere between 75,000 to 1,50,000. Some factors that can influence the cost include the number of cycles of ICSI required, the cost of medications, monitoring tests, and other associated expenses.

FAQs

 Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) involves injecting a single sperm directly into the egg. It is an advanced form of in vitro fertilization (IVF).

 

ICSI is used when:

 

  • Sperm have poor count, motility, or morphology (structure), or they are absent in the semen due to obstructive and non-obstructive azoospermia.
  • In the presence of  unexplained fertility problems 
  • When other assisted reproductive technologies (ART), such as IVF, have failed.  
  • When there is a diminished reserve of eggs

IVF is a process in which 50,000 processed sperm are added to the dish containing the oocyte. ICSI is an advanced form of IVF in which a single sperm is injected into the egg. This increases the chances of the egg getting fertilized.

 

IVF was introduced by Edwards and Steptoe in the late 1970s whereas  ICSI was developed by Palermo in 1992. The first ICSI baby in India was created by our team in 1994. Both procedures are safe and effective, but ICSI may be preferable in some situations.

The ICSI Procedure does not always result in twin pregnancy. The chances of twins increase when 2 or more embryos are transferred into the uterus. This is applicable to IVF and ICSI.

ICSI mimics nature very closely and performs the 7 steps of fertilisation.
