ICSI Cyprus Procedure
The procedure involves ovarian stimulation with fertility medication, egg collection with ultrasound-guided aspiration, sperm collection, fertilization by injecting a single sperm cell into each egg, and embryo transfer after three to five days.
With ICSI Cypus, IVF multiple eggs are collected from the ovaries of the woman, which are further examined, evaluated and selected for fertilization. The male partner (or donor) provides a sperm sample on the same day when the eggs are collected. ICSI is the most advanced and effective method of fertilization used at euroCARE IVF North Cyprus.
Some of the reasons behind ICSI are unexplained infertility, male infertility, advanced maternal age or a small number of collected eggs.
ICSI Process Step By Step
ICSI Cyprus is performed under a microscope with multiple micromanipulation devices including micromanipulator, microinjectors and micropipettes. A pipette is used to stabilize the egg. A single sperm is collected and inserted with a micropipette into the egg. The fertilized eggs (now embryos) will be checked the next day to assess their development.
After each step of the ICSI process has been successfully completed, you will be scheduled an embryo transfer in which the best embryo(s) will be transferred to your uterus. The embryo transfer usually takes place on day 3 or day 5 after fertilization. Day 5 embryo transfer is also known as blastocyst transfer. 12 days after the embryo transfer, you’ll do a beta hCG test to check whether your IVF treatment in Cyprus has been successful or not.
The advantage of ICSI is that only one sperm is needed per egg. In conventional IVF, 50,000 or more swimming sperm are placed in a petri dish with collected eggs. Fertilization occurs when one of the sperm enters into the cytoplasm of the egg. In the ICSI process at euroCARE IVF, a micropipette is used to inject a single sperm into the egg. Once the egg is fertilized (now called an embryo), it grows in a laboratory for several days before it is transferred to the woman’s uterus.
ICSI Cyprus Success Rates
In ICSI, 50% to 80% of eggs will be fertilized. The rest of the eggs will be either damaged, won’t grow into embryos after fertilization, or the embryos might stop growing after some time.
ICSI Cyprus Risks
If a woman conceives naturally, there is a 1.5% to 3% chance that the baby will be born with a birth defect. The chance of birth defects in ICSI is slightly higher than in natural conception.
The increased risk of birth defects may be caused due to the infertility and not the ICSI treatments itself.
Why ICSI in North Cyprus?
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a common technique used in the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF). when there is a case of male fertility. Known as micro-manipulation, certain advanced techniques can be performed in addition to the standard in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure.
By isolating and injecting a single, healthy sperm cell directly into each egg, infertility specialists have made it possible to overcome some of the most severe cases of male factor infertility.
ICSI is typically recommended if a patient has one or more of the following:
- Male factor
- Diminished ovarian reserve
- Advanced maternal age
- Previous poor fertilization results from standard insemination
During the procedure, our euroCARE IVF doctors use powerful microscopes and precise equipment to select individual, healthy sperm cells and place them directly into the egg — instead of merely combining the prepared eggs and sperm in a laboratory dish and waiting for fertilization to take place on its own.
