Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI for short, is a procedure in which your partner’s sperm is injected directly into your eggs for IVF fertilization. You may have questions about using ICSI with IVF for male infertility and we are here to help. Here are some answers to common questions about ICSI. The ICSI procedure can help you and your partner become pregnant despite some male infertility problems, such as:

  • Semen unable to penetrate or fertilize the egg, low sperm count or poor sperm quality
  • A blockage or anatomical abnormality of the human reproductive system that prevents it from producing or ejaculating spermatozoa
  • Men who need a testicular or epididymal biopsy to conceive (as after a vasectomy)

Why Use ICSI?

ICSI has been a significant benefit to IVF for over a decade and has revolutionized the treatment of couples with severe male infertility. Know that even if there is no problem with your partner’s sperm, your doctor may still recommend ICSI with IVF. ICSI is often helpful even for couples who have failed IVF in previous cycles.
