    Semen microinjection is a complementary technique to IVF. ICSI intervenes when the spermatozoa and the oocyte come into contact. Instead of waiting for the mobile spermatozoa to reach the oocytes, the 'ICSI medically assists the injection of sperm directly into the oocyte and thus improves the chances of fertilization.

    In detail, the sperm is collected and processed, then the sperm is selected according to its morphology and mobility. Using a micro-needle, the most mature sperm is transferred into the oocyte to begin embryo culture.

    Procedure of the intervention

    When you choose to perform IVF ICSI abroad, you will be cared for by a highly qualified and experienced medical team.

    The different stages of the intervention include:

    • Controlled ovarian stimulation
    • Oocyte collection
    • Preparation and injection of spermatozoa into oocytes
    • Culture of embryos in the laboratory
    • Transfer of embryos into the patient's uterus


    IVF ICSI is an in vitro fertilization technique that involves the direct injection of a sperm into an egg to increase the chances of fertilization.

    How is IVF ICSI going abroad and in Spain in particular?

    The stay takes place in the same way as a classic IVF which is divided into 2 stays.

    1st stay:

    During the consultation, a review is performed to determine expectations. A treatment will be prescribed to the recipient to stimulate her eggs.

    2nd stay

    As soon as the oocytes have reached maturity, they are ready to be collected. The selected sperm will be injected directly into the oocytes in vitro. Then the embryo develops in the laboratory. Embryo culture can begin. The recipient will have to prepare her endometrium to accommodate the embryo.

    How to get reimbursed for IVF ICSI?

    France is one of the few countries to reimburse assisted reproduction procedures.
    To qualify, you must meet these conditions:

    In case a spouse has an abnormality of spermatozoa

    Some examples of sperm abnormalities that generally justify the use of IVF ICSI

    Severe oligospermia: A low number of sperm in the semen sample.

    Asthenospermia: Sperm with reduced motility or abnormal motility.

    Teratospermia: A high proportion abnormal sperm in terms of morphology.

    Azoospermia: Absence of sperm in the semen sample.

    Necrospermia: Non-viable or low viability sperm.

    It is important to note that each case is unique and that sperm abnormalities can vary from one individual to another. A thorough evaluation by a fertility specialist will determine if IVF ICSI is the best option.

    Ovocyte cryopreservation and IVF ICSI are two complementary techniques for fertility preservation and infertility treatment.

    Ovocyte cryopreservation:

    A woman who wishes to delay childbearing for professional or medical reasons can choose to have her eggs cryopreserved. It is useful to freeze your ovocytes or embryos for further testing in case of failure. It saves time, because it is not necessary to repeat the ovarian stimulation treatment.

    The ovocytes are extracted by ovarian stimulation, then frozen and stored for future use.

    -A woman with a condition requiring potentially fertility-destroying treatments, such as chemotherapy, may opt for ovocyte cryopreservation before starting her treatment, in order to have the possibility of conceiving later.

  • Therapeutic indication

    IVF ICSI is recommended in cases of severe male infertility, quality problems or reduced motility of spermatozoa, as well as in certain cases of female infertility.

  • Anesthesia

    IVF ICSI is usually performed under local anesthesia or light sedation, which allows the patient to remain conscious and comfortable throughout the procedure.

  • Duration of the intervention

    The duration of IVF ICSI varies depending on specific cases, but in general the procedure itself lasts around 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Achievement statistics

    Success rates for IVF ICSI vary depending on various factors such as the age of the patient, the quality of the eggs and sperm, and the expertise of the medical team. Your doctor will be able to provide you with precise information based on your specific situation.

  • Convalescence

    After the procedure, it is normal to feel slight abdominal discomfort for a few days. Most patients can return to normal activities after a few days of rest.

  • An Overview of the IVF Process with Egg Donation

    The IVF journey when opting for egg donation is not quite the same as for traditional IVF. Here's what you can expect:

    For the Egg Donor

    • Rigorous Selection: The donor is chosen based on phenotypic and immunological criteria to ensure the best compatibility with the couple or the receiving woman.
    • Ovary Stimulation: The donor receives hormones for about two weeks to stimulate her ovaries, with regular clinic visits for monitoring.
    • Ovarian Retrieval: The egg extraction is performed under light sedation and is generally painless. After a few hours of rest, the donor can go home.

    For the Receiving Couple or Woman

    • Health Assessment: First and foremost, a comprehensive medical examination is needed to rule out any other possible causes of infertility.
    • Endometrial Preparation: The receiving woman undergoes estrogen treatment for 10 to 15 days. Her endometrium is then assessed by ultrasound.
    • In Vitro Fertilization: On the day of the donor's egg retrieval, a sperm sample is prepared for fertilization, often using the ICSI technique.
    • Embryo Assessment: Biologists often use Time-lapse technology to monitor the development of the embryos, 24/7.
    • Embryo Transfer: After 5 days of development, the most viable embryos are transferred into the receiving woman's uterus.

    3. Ovarian puncture under sedation: Aspiration of ovarian follicles to obtain eggs.


    1. Medical Examination: Diagnosis to rule out other causes of infertility.
    2. Endometrial Preparation: Administration of estrogen to prepare the endometrium.
