Phases of ICSI procedure

Broadly speaking, an ICSI procedure involves 8 crucial steps in total. The last four include:

  1. Sperm microinjection: A sperm cell is manually injected into the egg cytoplasm.
  2. Endometrial preparation: The woman is administered extra hormones to prepare her endometrial lining for implantation.
  3. Embryo culture: The embryos are cultured in the IVF lab to evaluate their development. Those with the best implantation potential will be selected for the transfer.
  4. Embryo transfer: The embryo or embryos selected are placed into the woman's womb.

Finally, you will only have to wait about 12-15 days until the pregnancy test is performed, a period commonly known as two week wait.
