IVF / ICSI
In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) refers to fertilisation outside of the body. Eggs are collected and mixed with sperm in the laboratory. At Babysoon we offer three different types of IVF treatment:
- Standard IVF
- Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Once embryos are created they are grown (cultured) in the laboratory where their development is observed. One or two embryos are replaced back to the uterus, hopefully generating a successful pregnancy.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a powerful assisted reproductive technology (ART) used at the Babysoon in many cases of male infertility. ICSI represented the second major advance in modern fertility treatment – the first being IVF – because it enabled fertility specialists to directly address the problem of male factor infertility. The ICSI procedure directly introduces an individual sperm cell into each of the eggs obtained during the IVF (in vitro fertilization) process. The resulting embryo is then transferred to the uterus to initiate pregnancy. ICSI has proven to be a truly revolutionary technology, giving new hope to many couples who had been unable to conceive.
