Mr Sabah Baghdadi
While IVF is mixing the sperm and the egg to form an embryo, ICSI is used when the sperm count or quality is poor and cannot penetrate the egg. ICSI is needed to give the sperm a helping hand by injecting the sperm inside the egg to form an embryo. Some times in Azoospermia (no sperm in the ejaculate), we have to extract very few numbers of sperm left directly from the testicles. We then do ICSI with the sperm found and can achieve a pregnancy.
