What is ICSI?

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a powerful assisted reproductive technology (ART) used at the LIV Fertility Center for the forward-thinking management of male infertility. Denoted as a major advancement in modern fertility treatment, ICSI directly introduces an individual sperm cell into each of the eggs obtained during the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) process.

With a profound impact on low sperm counts and sperm with poor movement or shape, ICSI helps couples overcome the barriers that significantly reduced the possibility to fertilize eggs. Combined with our leading IVF program, ICSI offers couples significantly higher chances at fertilization.

The Future of ICSI — Unveiled

Inside the high-status LIV Fertility Center, the future of ICSI is developing. Male intended parents with low sperm count, absence of sperm in the ejaculate, impaired sperm motility, and abnormal sperm morphology are taking advantage of this state-of-the-art procedure.

  • Creating ultra-guidance for sperm binding to and penetrating the egg.
  • Advanced combat with anti-sperm antibodies (immune or protective proteins which attach to and destroy sperm).
  • Enabling cancer patients to freeze sperm prior to cancer treatment — of which may be limited in number and quality.

The LIV Way — Step by Step

STEP 1 | Initial Consultation with Your LIV Advisor

When you begin your journey to parenthood at LIV, you will consult with a personal advisor — a committed member of our team — who will acquire an extensive medical history from you and your partner and address any questions or concerns that you may have. We developed a program that allows you to feel comfortable and confident during each step of your journey. No worries — your LIV advisor will help you plan your first trip to Puerto Vallarta to connect with our medical team.

STEP 2 | In-House Consultation with LIV Clinical Coordinator

Your LIV clinical coordinator is a dedicated member of our fertility team who will oversee your entire family building journey. During your first visit, we will review your preliminary fertility diagnosis, perform tests, discuss with you the details of our program and the options for an individualized treatment plan. Your clinical coordinator will then schedule all the necessary procedures, which are entirely performed inside the gleaming LIV Fertility Center.

STEP 3 | IVF Procedure with ICSI Technique

During our routine IVF procedure, eggs and sperm are combined and incubated together in order to achieve fertilization. intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is performed by our leading embryologist, who surgically inserts one sperm into each egg. Under the microscope, the embryologist picks up a single sperm and injects it directly into the cytoplasm of the egg using a small glass needle. Our LIV fertility team will then continue with the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Cycle — fertilization, embryo transfer, and pregnancy testing.
