ICSI – Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection


Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection

What is ICSI?

ICSI, short for Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection, is a specialised procedure used in assisted reproductive technology (ART). It is commonly performed as part of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatments.

During ICSI, a single sperm is carefully selected and injected directly into an egg. This precise technique helps facilitate fertilisation by bypassing any barriers the sperm may encounter in natural conception.

ICSI is particularly useful in cases of male infertility, where the sperm may have difficulty reaching or penetrating the egg on its own. It can also be beneficial when previous attempts at IVF have not resulted in successful fertilisation.

What to expect from an ICSI treatment?

Initial Testing

There is no one diagnostic that can test your level of fertility but the two best indicators commonly used are the Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH) blood test for a female and a semen analysis for a male. If you have not had these tests completed we will ask for you to attend the clinic a few days before your consultation to have these completed. Your doctor will then discuss the results with you on the day of the consultation.


At your first consultation you will meet with one of our doctors who will describe in detail the ICSI procedure; what to expect throughout the process; success rates for your own particular case and the expected outcome. The consultation generally lasts approximately one hour and is a good opportunity to ask questions and voice any concerns or worries you may have.

Diagnostics & Counselling

During your consultation, the doctor may suggest some additional diagnostic tests for you and/or your partner. Then, you will be contacted by a member of our team who can schedule these tests for you and answer any questions you may have. You can then attend a session with a Specialist Fertility Counsellor who will discuss the implications of undergoing this treatment and offer emotional support. This is recommended to our patients undergoing fertility treatments.

Treatment Plan

When all your diagnostics are complete your doctor will dictate and confirm your treatment plan. You will receive educational modules relating to your treatment, along with consent forms via our online platform, Engaged MD. Upon completion of your modules and consent forms the coordination/ nursing team will arrange your starting date for treatment and next steps.
