The two most well-known phrases that we hear when it comes to assisted conception are ‘in-vitro fertilization’ (IVF) and ‘intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection’ (ICSI). If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for a year or more without success, you could be candidates for IVF or ICSI. Come into the best IVF clinic in Dubai and one of our team of highly trained fertility specialists will be happy to talk you through all the options available and help you decide which treatment is right for you.
IVF treatment is the original ‘test-tube’ fertility treatment that was developed over 30 years ago to help women conceive.
IVF has become the most commonly used term to denote fertility treatment and with many people using it as an umbrella term to describe any kind of clinically-aided conception treatment. IVF in fact refers to a specific treatment, whereby eggs taken from the mother-to-be and sperm from the father, are left to unite in a petri dish in the laboratory, rather than in the woman’s body. This allows the embryologist to see when fertilization has occurred.
Each egg is mixed with a drop of thousands of selected strongest sperm from the sample given that day. But only one sperm can enter each egg and fertilize it. Once the eggs have been fertilized, the embryos are given a few days to develop before being reintroduced to the mother’s womb, in order to help ensure the best chances for conceiving.
In some cases, however, the sperm may need a little more help to ensure that the egg is fertilised. This can happen if the man has a very low sperm count or if there are other problems with the sperm, such as low motility or very few sperm with normal shape.
In such cases, the assisted reproduction process can be further aided by the embryologist who will select a single sperm and inject it directly into one egg. This process, known as intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection or (ICSI) gives the sperm a much better chance of fertilising the egg than through IVF alone. This technique may also be used if poor fertilization has been achieved previously with IVF. Get in touch with our clinic for an appointment and know the ICSI in Dubai.
