Why Does Icsi Work Better Than Natural Intercourse

ICSI is more effective than natural intercourse because:

• Fertility medications are used to produce more eggs than would develop naturally.

• Instead of your having to wait for the eggs to ovulate naturally, with IVF the eggs are retrieved manually by your doctor.

• IVF bypasses the fallopian tubes because the eggs are retrieved directly from the ovaries and transferred directly into the uterus.

• Your eggs are treated in the laboratory, and their outside protective layer is removed to make them more easily penetrated and fertilized by sperm.

• Sperm are specially prepared in the laboratory and then injected directly into each of your pretreated eggs to greatly improve the chances of fertilization.

• Most IVF programs transfer several fertilized eggs back into your uterus to improve the chances of a successful pregnancy outcome.
