In vitro fertilisation is the standard technique for women who have blocked fallopian tubes.It is used in cases of male infertility, in which the man’s sperm is unable to fertilise his partner’s egg naturally, either because he has a very low sperm count, or his sperm are very poor swimmers.In vitro fertilisation can be used in conjunction with other techniques, such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection, if a man produces no sperm in his ejaculation. The sperm are surgically retrieved from his testes using one of several techniques.IVF can be used to treat unexplained infertility. Even if no reason can be found to explain why a couple cannot have a baby naturally, a cycle of in vitro fertilisation can still result in a successful pregnancy.
IVF can be done in two different ways:
1- Classic Tube Baby application = IVF = in vitro fertilization.
2- ICSI = microinjection =intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
The second method is more widely used of this two methods today. The advantage of the second method is patients with less sperm count and semen analysis with poor results, it will provides advantages. Tube baby steps listed below in both methods is the same in a large scale, the only difference may be summarized as follows:
With the IVF method is it will be taken egg cell from the mother and it will be put it together with thousands of sperm (50 Thousand) in a special environment, one of these sperm cell will fertilizes the eggcell.
ICSI with other name microinjection is will done outside the body in a further laboratory environment. A single sperm cell will be enjected in to the eggcell for the ferzilization.
