What is ICSI? 

ICSI stands for intra-cytoplasmatische sperma-injectie. ICSI is a type of IVF treatment. The only difference is the way of fertilization. 

Good motile, normal in shape spermatozoids are selected in the sperm of the partner/donor to inject them irectly into the egg. This can be the prefere technique for sperm samples of less good quality (less motile, less in quantity, less normal formed sperm cells) as you require less sperm cells – 1 sperm cell per ovocyte.

The rest of the procedure is the same as for IVF: Hormonal injections, blood tests and ultrasound for monitoring follicle growth, follicle puncture, embryo transfer, etc.
