TOP Doctors for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is the most common method of artificial insemination. With their help, even men with severe fertility disorders have the chance to fulfill their desire for children.

In an ICSI, a single spermatozoa with a very fine needle is inserted (injected) directly into an ovum that has been previously removed from the woman's ovary. In the meantime, ICSI is used more frequently in Germany than the conventional in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in case of unfulfilled desire for children. In 2014, the procedure was used in almost 75% of all artificial inseminations.

The course of an ICSI treatment largely corresponds to that of a conventional IVF treatment.

In the run-up, the woman almost always undergoes hormonal stimulation. If control examinations have shown that one or more oocytes have matured sufficiently, ovulation is triggered. 36 hours later, under a short, light anesthetic, the oocytes are removed from the ovaries.

The procedure takes place on an outpatient basis. After two to four hours, the woman can go home again.

On the day of egg collection, the doctor will fertilize one or more ova with the ICSI method.

After a sperm cell has been injected into an egg cell under a special microscope, the egg cell is placed in an incubator. If the fertilization has succeeded and the fertilized egg cell continues to develop, the embryo (or embryos) is transferred to the woman's uterus with a thin catheter between the second to a maximum of six days after egg collection. This is generally painless.

This happens during an artificial insemination with the ICSI method


In an ICSI, a single sperm is injected directly into the egg. This method of artificial insemination is especially useful for a severely limited sperm quality of the man. Learn more about the process and the opportunities.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI for short, is a special form of artificial insemination outside the body, ie in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Course of an ICSI

Pretreatment up to and including egg cell retrieval is no different from IVF therapy. First, egg maturation is stimulated by hormone treatment. If the ovarian follicles in which the oocytes mature reach a certain size, the fertilizable oocytes are removed from the ovary. On the same day, the ICSI method injects a single sperm into the cytoplasm of a mature egg using a thin glass capillary tube. This method, which has been used successfully since 1992, is called microinjection.

The injected oocytes are placed in the incubator immediately after microinjection. The day after the ICSI you can see how many of the treated oocytes are fertilized (pronuclear stage). The further development to embryos also takes place in the incubator and lasts for a maximum of five days. This is followed by the insertion of the embryos into the uterus.

When does an ICSI make sense?

There are several reasons why ICSI treatment is better for couples than IVF therapy. For example, there may be a severely limited sperm quality of the male. Although IVF therapy did not result in egg fertilization (IVF failure), ICSI is a good way to achieve pregnancy.

How big are the chances of success of an ICSI?

The chances of success of an ICSI treatment essentially depend on the age of the woman. They are at the age of 30 years at about 40 percent and at the age of 35 to 38 years at about 30 to 35 percent. This means that about every third treatment cycle leads to a pregnancy.

Is microinjection risky?

ICSI therapy carries about the same risks as IVF treatment. For example, the previous hormone treatment may cause abdominal pain, nausea or respiratory distress. In addition, anesthesia is never completely risk-free, and organs can be accidentally injured when ova are removed. What also needs to be considered: Because in most cases more than one embryo is inserted into the woman's uterus during embryo transfer, multiple pregnancies are more common.
