In order to find out different aspects, we will try to tell you the difference between both the categories of ART.

About ICSI

Firstly talking about intracytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI, it proves to be a similar procedure to conventional IVF where eggs of the woman and sperm of man get collected. It is a procedure takes place in the lab where a single sperm is chosen with a fine glass needle and then gets injected into the egg of the woman. Embryologist handles these kinds of treatments with the help of an equipment. This type of fertility treatment is preferred when the male partner's sperm is supposed to be unlikely in fertilizing the egg naturally. It can be when the sperm count has been supposed to be very low or it is unable to move properly. Some other conditions include whether the sperm has been frozen or contains a high rate of abnormality, etc. It is mainly offered when a man is found to have oligospermia, that is, very few sperm or azoospermia, which means no sperm into their semen but had a successful surgical retrieval of the sperm or if there is an amount of high amount of abnormal sperm which isn't able in fertilizing an egg, the probability of having their genetic baby with the partner.

About IVF

In-vitro fertilization process initiates from delivering a drug to the woman in the form of an injection for some days to suppress her natural menstrual cycle. Then she will be delivered FSH or follicle-stimulating hormone as these types of hormones are able to assist in developing more eggs as compared to the normal. After some time, the eggs will be accumulated through a minor surgical process. The doctor will use a thin needle and insert it through the vagina and into the ovary. When eggs are collected, they will be combined with the male partner's sperm for getting fertilized in the lab. When eggs are developed in the embryos, one or more of them will be put back into the uterus of the woman and pregnancy will take place when any of the embryos attach to the uterine lining.
