Possible risks of ICSI

The ICSI technique can pose some risks for women, as any other assisted reproduction treatment. Among them, those are the most common risks:

Ovarian hyperstimulation
caused by the administration of hormonal drugs for the production of multiple follicles in the ovary.
Multiple pregnancy
due to the transfer of two embryos. For this reason, it is increasingly common to opt for the transfer of a single embryo.
usually happens in the first pregnancy week.
Ectopic pregnancy
that is, when the embryo implants outside the uterus.

Therefore, the risks of ICSI are the same as in conventional IVF.
