The journey of life starts here. Nearly 100 million sperm swim for their lives but only one of them will survive.

Before a man’s sperm can fertilize a woman’s egg, the head of the sperm must attach to the outside of it. Once attached, the sperm pushes through the outer layer to the inside of the egg, where fertilization takes place.

Sometimes the sperm cannot penetrate the outer layer, for a variety of reasons. The egg’s outer layer may be thick or hard to penetrate or the sperm may be unable to swim. In these cases, a procedure called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) can be done along with in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help fertilize the egg. During ICSI, a single sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm of the egg.

The development of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) as treatment of male infertility has revolutionized infertility therapy and allowed many couples to give birth to a child that otherwise would have been impossible.
