When a couple conceives naturally, sperm from the man and the egg from the woman meet in the woman’s fallopian tubes. These are the tubes that join the ovaries to the uterus (womb). One sperm penetrates the egg and fertilises it.In IVF, this process of fertilisation happens outside the woman’s body. A woman’s eggs are surgically removed and fertilised in a laboratory using sperm that has been given as a sperm sample.Next, the fertilised egg, called an embryo, is surgically implanted into the woman's womb.Typically, one cycle of IVF takes between four and seven weeks.
What is ICSI ?
Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is the process of selecting a single sperm by the embryologist to be injected directly into an egg. It is successful for pregnancy in even the most difficult types of male infertility, including man who have fewer than hundred sperms in there semen sample.
