How PICSI Treatment Improve the Chance of Healthy Fertilization
Introduction to PICSI
PICSI is the acronym for Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. This is an upgraded ICSI process to benefit some of the patients who need ICSI. Men with poor samples of sperm usually have a high level of immature sperm. Even though immature sperm sometimes shows normal morphology and motility, they have damaged DNA at high levels.
Hence, when immature sperm undergoes fertilization, it leads to poor embryo quality and loss of pregnancy. In this situation, doctors involved in infertility treatment in Delhi or other cities follow the PICSI method, which helps select mature sperm to inject into patients.
The best thing about the physiological ICSI method is that it does not contain any other risk related to the selection or collection of sperms. Moreover, Dr. Rita Bakshi, an IVF specialist, and other reputed doctors guide patients on whether PICSI treatment is an appropriate treatment for them.
What Happens During PCSI
Differentiate Between Mature and Immature Sperm
During PICSI, the embryologist and other doctors associated with infertility treatment in Delhi differentiate between immature and mature sperms. Here, mature sperms complete their development process, and the immature ones have damaged DNA and may lack or exceed the required number of chromosomes.
Injection of Matured Sperms in Matured Eggs
Once the embryologist identifies the matured sperm, he or she injects it into the matured eggs directly.
Incubation of Injected Eggs
Followed by PICSI, incubation of the injected eggs occurs overnight while the embryologist assesses them the following day to collect evidence related to fertilization. According to experts providing IVF in India, the average rate of fertilization after the PICSI procedure is similar to the one in ICSI. If you follow the statistics, approximately 60 percent to 70 percent of injected sperms to eggs fertilize, usually after PICSI treatment.
Suitable Candidates to Undergo PICSI
According to doctors offering IVF treatment in Delhi, almost every individual may choose PICSI. The reason is that there is no harm or risk related to the procedure. However, the suitable candidates for the treatment are-
- Individuals who have poor motility or abnormal morphology and other insufficient sperm parameters
- Patients who experienced failure in IVF treatment in the past
- When poor grade or quality of embryos formed during their previous cycle
- If the sperm has high DFI, I.e., DNA fragmentation index
- Patients who have a history related to repeated miscarriages
- When there was no formation of embryos or patients had an insufficient level of fertilization in their previous ICSI cycle
How PICSI Benefits You
Always Selects the Best Possible Sperm
The main objective behind conducting PICSI is that it always allows you to choose the best possible sperm based on its property to bind mature sperm.
Yields Sperm of Better Quality
Relevant scientific literature suggests that any sperm yield via PICSI procedure is of better quality with a normal chromosome count and gives an improved chance of fertilization.
Hence, with risk-free PICSI, you will expect to have healthy fertilization without any risk and less fertilization probability.
