What is ICSI?
Naturally, the ejaculated sperm swim through the uterus into the fallopian tubes, one of which will contain the egg ovulated that month. One of the sperm will pass through the different layers that protect the egg to fertilize it, and thus produce the zygote, which ends up forming the embryo.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, better known as ICSI, is an assisted reproduction technique that involves the direct insertion of a sperm into the ovule to facilitate fertilization.
