Bearing a child of their own is every couple’s desire. At times this is difficult due to some gynecological issues. Gynecologists specialized in advanced infertility treatments and procedures such as IUI, IVF, ICSI can help couples become parents.
ICSI stands for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. This is a step included along with the regular IVF treatment. Nisha IVF centre, one of the best IVF hospitals in Ahmedabad, welcomes couples who have difficulty conceiving naturally.
The Hospital has some of the best IVF doctors in Ahmedabad associated with them, treating couples with all kinds of complexities in child conception.
They are well equipped to carry out male and female infertility tests and treat the patient accordingly.
Once your test results are in, the doctors will diagnose the problems and suggest a line of treatment to the patient and, in some cases, both husband and wife.
When infertility is a problem, ICSI can help.
Similar to the process of IVF, a woman is given medication to stimulate egg production in the ovaries. Your doctor will be monitoring the egg development. Just as soon as they are ready to be retrieved, the ICSI procedure starts.
The male is asked to provide sperm. He can either ejaculate in a cup, or the surgeon can take it surgically.
The doctor makes use of an ultrasound probe and a small needle to extract several eggs from the woman’s ovaries. Although this process is painless, it may cause minor bruising and stiffness. First, eggs are retrieved, and then fresh semen is collected.
The doctor chooses a single sperm that has been cleaned for the process. With a very thin hollow needle, this sperm is then directly injected into the egg. The sperm may take up to 24 hours to fertilize an egg and form an embryo.
For up to 6 days the fertilized embryos are watched for signs of development and growth. This phase is critical for selecting the healthiest and most viable embryos to be transported to the woman’s uterus.
The surgeon uses a guided catheter to transfer about 2-3 matured embryos into the womb. It takes about 5 days for embryo implantation.
The would-be mother must do a pregnancy test utilizing a blood report or a urine pregnancy test kit two weeks after the embryo transfer. You must also inform the fertility centre of the test results. The findings of the tests will indicate how your IVF treatment will progress in the future.
It is observed that there are approximately 80-85% chances that the egg fertilization is successful, similar to conditions where male infertility is not a problem.
There are chances of complications, but they are rare. Only a small percentage of eggs – usually less than 5% – may be ruined due to the needle insertion during the ICSI method. Also, the total risk of having a baby with an X or Y chromosome defect is just 0.8 percent or eight per 1000. The reasons are still unknown.
Where it has been observed that the chances of conception are quite high with ICSI, risk factors are small. So, take the opportunity that science offers you to become parents and live a happy and fulfilled life.
