What is in vitro fertilization (IVF)? What is ICSI?

IVF ICSI Procedure - Important things you need to know

Let’s talk about assisted reproduction procedures. IVF and ICSI come under Assisted Reproductive Technologies. IVF means in vitro fertilization in which the union of egg and sperm happens outside the human body in an IVF lab under appropriate conditions. Eggs are often fertilized in vitro by culturing eggs with many motile sperm.

ICSI is an advanced IVF technique in which sperm is injected into the egg manually using a thin glass pipette with higher technology and skills. This technique was developed to facilitate fertilization in cases of male-factor infertility but is now used in most IVF cycles. Selected Embryos are then transferred into the mother’s womb to achieve pregnancy.
