ICSI Treatment | Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection

In natural conception, a sperm needs to find its way into the egg. To accomplish this, it has to reach the site of fertilisation, bind to the egg, tunnel through the shell and fuse with the egg membrane. However, in some cases, the sperm may be unable to swim or penetrate the outer layer of the egg. Thus, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), a technique which is done alongside IVF treatment, is crucial for fertilisation. (more…)

What are the most common fertility treatments? Which is most suitable for me?

In order to achieve a pregnancy, the egg has to be fertilised by the sperm. Fertilisation is the fusion of an egg and a sperm to form an embryo. Fertilisation can occur in-vivo (inside body such as conceiving by natural means) or in-vitro (outside the body). Fertilisation that occurs outside the body is known as in-vitro fertilisation. The most common fertility treatments are:
  1. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in In-vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment
  2. Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) treatment
