In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) for male infertility
In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is where sperm is collected from the man and eggs are collected from the women. Both sperm and the eggs are placed in a special incubator to assist in fertilisation. The fertilised eggs develop into embryos, which are then implanted into the woman’s uterus.
Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) for male infertility
In some circumstances a male’s semen may contain low quality or too few normal sperm to make fertilisation possible through IVF. So intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be used.
Eggs are harvested from the woman’s ovaries and each egg is injected with a single sperm. The fertilised eggs develop into embryos that are transferred into the woman’s uterus at the appropriate time.
