Process of ICSI at Raipur IVF, India
The ICSI process consists of the creation of several mature eggs. It is possible that you will be given fertility drugs to encourage your ovaries to produce several eggs for fertilization The ICSI process is commonly used by couples who are experiencing the condition of male factor infertility. It is also used by couples who have tried other assisted means in the past and have not been successful.
There are five major steps in the process
- 1. The male member is asked to produce a sperm sample or one is surgically extracted from him.
- 2. The eggs are surgically extracted from the female member
- 3. Using a small hollow needle the sperm is injected into the egg
- 4. The fertilized egg is now kept under observation and its development is tracked systematically
- 5. Once it is assured that the embryo is showing all signs of normal growth, the embryo is implanted into the uterus and allowed to mature and grow
Both fresh sperms and frozen sperms may be used for the process. The process happens using a method called micromanipulation. This uses a special tool along with specialized equipment to pick up a single sperm and directly inject it into the egg. A cycle of ICSI treatment takes from four to six weeks. In the first case, the couple has to spend a day at the clinic for egg and sperm retrieval procedures.
After two to six days in the clinic will ask you for a revisit for the embryo transfer procedure.

ICSI success rate in India
The ICSI program was started with Raipur IVF in 1995-96 and the hospital has performed more than 800 cycles till date. This has been achieved with a success rate of 30 to 40%, a statistic comparable to the best units in the world. The success rate of an ICSI procedure is quite high. However, the rates also depend on several personal characteristics and might thus differ from person to person. Age is one criterion which determines the success of the process to a large extent. For a woman, under 35 years of age, the rate will be close to 50 percent. However, after over 40 years of age, the success rate dips.
The high success rate of the process is because almost 50-80% of the eggs subjected to the process are fertilized. However, the other factors determine the completion of a successful pregnancy However it can be seen here that the success rate of IVF is very similar to other conventional methods. The ultimate deciding factor is the particular fertility problem that you are facing and of course your age. This is where our doctors at Raipur IVF help you to maximize the benefits of this technology. With their wide knowledge base, our doctors will help find optimal solutions for all your infertility related issues.
