IVF and ICSI
For some couples though, in vitro fertilisation (IVF) offers the best chance of achieving a pregnancy. IVF treatment may be recommended in a range of conditions affecting fertility, including sperm abnormalities, endometriosis, tubal damage, unsuccessful ovulation induction and unexplained infertility.
For many couples where sperm quality is poor, conventional IVF is unlikely to result in fertilisation. In such cases, your fertility specialist will recommend IVF incorporating intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI treatment).
ICSI involves injecting a single sperm into each egg, using very fine micromanipulation equipment.
Your treatment will depend on the outcome of the investigations carried out by your Eve Health fertility specialis and will be explained to you in detail at the time of diagnosis.
