The answer is ‘NO’! For those with failure through IVF, advancements in cutting-edge technology has brought a clear hope called ICSI.
What is ICSI? How does it Work?
ICSI stands for Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection and is a very successful Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) to cure infertility. In ICSI an experienced embryologist picks up a single sperm cell and injects it into the cytoplasm of a full-grown egg under a controlled environment in a laboratory. This process increases the chances of the fertilization.
How ICSI Helps In IVF?
Basically, ICSI is an enhanced form of in vitro fertilization(IVF) and it is performed to increase the chances of fertilization. Many other factors affect the success rate of pregnancy through IVF, like age of female, embryo incompetence, implantation dysfunction, and her own fertility issues. But there’s nothing like this to worry about in ICSI because it ensures the fertilization of egg and sperm, and hence increases the chances of the assisted reproductive procedure to be more successful.
The modern way of living i.e. high mental pressure, polluted air, presence of unknown and known chemicals in the vegetables, fruits, meat, seafood and water, high intake of preservatives through preserved food and readymade eatables, drugs, radio waves, mobile towers and GMO food (Genetically Modified Organisms) and several other factors still unknown to the science causes infertility. The male fertility is affected more by these factors and the ratio is higher than female fertility. Infertility in males is really complex too in comparison to female infertility. So ICSI is the best method to achieve the fertilization of the eggs and sperm if the male partner’s sperm count is the hindrance for the couples to have a baby.
