IVF, ICSI and IMSI. What is the difference?

oday, treatment of infertility is carried out with the use of IVF, ICSI, IMSI and others. In fact, all of these methods of treatment of infertility are of the same group. Let's see what the basic difference of these methods is.


IVF is a method of treatment of infertility, the essence of which is that an egg is fertilized outside the woman's body, followed by the movement of the embryo into the uterus of the future mother. Reproduction experts "organize a meeting" of male and female germ cells in vitro. The process of fertilization occurs naturally. After some time, the most suitable for its characteristics embryo is placed in the woman's uterus. With a positive result of the procedure, the pregnancy goes in a natural way.

ICSI is a method of treatment of infertility, which is like a part of IVF. This method is generally used at the male infertility (sperm pathology), female infertility (applies to women over 35 years) and in cases when repeated use of IVF did not produce a positive result. The main feature of ICSI is a procedure of fertilization of female egg with a male sperm. If during the procedure of IVF, in vitro fertilization takes place naturally, the ICSI technique involves the introduction of a pre-selected sperm into the female egg with special medical instruments.
