Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection – IMSI

REFLECTION. At LIV, there’s no hidden methods or secret treatment protocols — overcoming infertility requires thorough research and meticulous attention to detail to ensure that every step of your journey reflects in successful results.

LIVExpert fertility doctor, Dr. Francisco Velez, and an extraordinary team of specialists in Puerto Vallarta are bringing change to the forefront of the fertility industry. Fertility success doesn’t happen overnight.

What is IMSI?

Intracytoplasmic morphologically-selected sperm injection (IMSI) vastly improves the selection of normally-shaped sperm for higher pregnancy rates, reduced miscarriages and is highly successful for couples facing severe male infertility.

IMSI is considered equal to Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) in many aspects. However, ICSI typically magnifies an individual sperm by 400 times, whereas IMSI features a specially-configured, high-powered microscope that achieves magnification of greater than 6000 times. With this advanced level of treating male infertility, embryologists are able to view sperm in greater detail and detect subtle structural damage and inflexibly match healthy sperm criteria.

During a routine IVF procedure, eggs and sperm are combined and incubated together in order to achieve fertilization. IMSI is performed by a leading embryologist, using an extremely high-powered microscope to select the sperm cells with the best morphological quality to be injected into the eggs. While the LIV Fertility Center does  not offer IMSI, we do offer advanced In-vitro Fertilization (IVF) Cycles — fertilization, embryo transfer, and pregnancy testing.
