ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection)
Males with very low sperm counts (less than 5million per ml) or poor-quality sperms had no hope of fatherhood. This problem was surmounted by ICSI. In ICSI treatment procedure, all the steps are similar to the procedure of In Vitro Fertilization treatment, except the step of fertilization. In ICSI each egg is held and injected with a single live sperm. This micro-fertilization is done with the help of a machine called the Micromanipulator. ICSI treatment procedure is done where egg is held and injected with single live sperm. It is cultured for 2-3 days and good quality of 3 embryos are usually placed in the woman’s uterus, 2 or 3 days after ICSI. The success rates of ICSI treatment procedure in Motherhood fertility centre is 60 to 70%. Because of the success rate, the fertility centre is considered as one of the best ICSI Fertility Treatment in Hyderabad.
Embryos that have satisfactorily divided are transferred to the uterus 2-3 or 5 days after fertilization. This simple and painless procedure does not require sedation or anesthesia. The embryos are loaded on a small plastic catheter, which is gently introduced through the cervix into the uterus. Once in the uterine cavity, the embryos are gently released and the catheter is withdrawn. The patient can return home after a couple of hours of rest.
Embryo Cryopreservation & Storage
Cryopreservation of oocytes, zygotes, embryos & cleavage stage embryos has become an integral part of any In Vitro Fertilization treatment – Embryo transfer programme. Efficient embryo freezing has several advantages as it helps reducing cost and increase cumulative pregnancy rates. It also helps when embryo transfer is cancelled due to ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome or a difficult embryo transfer.
Laser Assisted Embryo Hatching
Motherhood Fertility Centre, one of the best fertility treatment in Hyderabad is one of the few centers , where laser assisted hatching is done and we have been getting excellent results with this procedure. It is especially used in women > 35 yr, repeated In Vitro Fertilization hormone treatment failures and in frozen embryo transfer cases.
Egg Donation Program
Egg donation is a very successful option for building a family, because it has higher success rate, compare to using women’s own eggs in In Vitro Fertilization treatment Cycle. By using donor eggs which are fertilized with the male partner sperm and then placed in the female partners uterus providing her the same gestational experience as natural conception which help to form the bond between mother & child. We are using highly screened, healthy young donors, which are giving 75% success rate.
Who is ICSI suitable for?
In the view of a patient, having ICSI treatment procedure cycle is exactly equal with the conventional in vitro fertilization treatment procedure, and the equal steps are involved.
The circumstances in which Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection may be appropriate include:
When the count of sperm is very low
When the sperm don’t move properly or are in an abnormal condition.
When sperm has been recovered surgically from the epididymis (MESA/PESA), present behind the testes.
TESE (testicular sperm extraction) /TESA (testicular sperm aspiration), from urine or following electro-ejaculation.
When there are great amounts of antibodies in the semen
When there has been a previous fertilization failure using conventional In Vitro Fertilization treatment.
Males having azoospermia, where there is no sperm generation in the semen.
In the azoospermia process, there is the production of sperms in the testes nut because of the blockage of the conduction system, the sperms bring into the semen. Otherwise, the azoospermia might be of the non- obstructive type, where testes cannot produce sperms. in these days, in both the cases of azoospermia, sperms can be detached directly from the testes by utilizing some sperm retrieval techniques like PESA/TESA/TESE and ICSI.
What does ICSI involve?
According to a patient, undergoing ICSI treatment procedure is exactly the same as the in vitro fertilization treatment procedure. But patients should be aware of the risks, those are associated with Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).
Stimulation of the ovaries present in the woman to enhance the development and maturation of the eggs.
Recovery of the eggs.
It is also believed that those individuals, who have a history of tuberculosis or endometriosis undergoing ICSI treatment procedure give better fertilization rates than the standard in vitro fertilization treatment. If the sperm count is very much less, then we keep half of the eggs to in vitro fertilization treatment and half the eggs to the ICSI treatment procedure. In this case, the success rate of Motherhood fertility center is so high that now this fertility centre becomes the best fertility hospital in Hyderabad.
