What is the Exact Role of IVF in Male Infertility?
- IVF (In-Vitro-Fertilization)
IVF plays a major role in treating male infertility. Firstly, the women are given fertility hormone so that they can produce a number of quality eggs. This method allows us to place a single egg into a droplet of fluid. The most motile sperm is chosen which helps in the fertilization process of sperm and egg which results in the creation of the embryo.
No doubt, it is one of the effective treatment for men who have a low sperm count. This method helps in increasing the sperm concentration so that it can be exposed to the egg. Not only this, it helps if the sperm movement is not proper. With this treatment, the sperm is prepared in such a way that the high motility sperm is placed very close to the egg. Eventually, this increases the chances of fertilization and also the chances of a successful pregnancy
- IVF along with ICSI
This method is combined with ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection). This method is highly advanced as well as one of the best method to treat male infertility. No doubt, In-Vitro-Fertilization plays an important role in getting the problem solved. The couple who want to use ICSI have to undergo the treatment of In-Vitro-Fertilization. During the process of ICSI, a single healthy sperm is injected into an egg. Due to this, it helps in creating an embryo and the whole process is carried out in a laboratory. Once the embryo is created, it is implanted back into the woman’s uterus.
You can say that it is a great invention in the medical field and it has helped the patients to get rid of infertility.
