In Vitro Fertilization or ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)) is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) commonly known as IVF. IVF is the process of fertilization by simply yanking eggs, regaining a sperm sample, then manually mixing an egg and sperm in a lab dish. The embryo(s) is subsequently moved into the uterus.

IVF can be used to treat infertility in the patients with:

  • Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
  • Male factor infertility including decreased sperm count or sperm motility
  • Women with ovulation disorders, premature ovarian failure, uterine fibroids
  • Women who have had their fallopian tubes removed
  • Individuals with a genetic disorder
  • Unexplained infertility

More serious symptoms, normally from OHSS, comprise the following:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Decreased urinary frequency
  • Shortness of breath
  • Faintness
  • Severe stomach pains and bloating
  • Ten-pound weight gain within three to five days

If you notice any of these signs above, contact your health care provider straight away.

There is a range of questions to ask concerning the price and details of particular facilities and fertility applications. Some suggested questions are available online. Some couples wish to research more conventional or over the counter attempts before researching infertility procedures.
