The PICSI methods are an enhancement to the ICSI method and are used for the artificial fertilization in cases where the sperms are not of normal shape, movement or maturity.
A specific selection of sperm during the PICSI method is done using hyaluronan which is able to bind the mature sperms only.
The PICSI method improves the treatment results through the mature sperm selection.
The number of oocytes to be fertilized by this method is dependent on the wishes for the couple, the number and quality of oocytes obtained. The cells obtained are then used to fertilize the egg using the ICSI method. The fertilization success rate is around 90%.
We did 4 pregnancy tests this week and we are pregnant
Myself and my husband travelled from Ireland to Praga medica for IVF treatment. We had been trying for a baby for 4 years , I found out I needed egg donation and a friend of mine had twins from IVF through Praga. We contacted the clinic, Veronika was our treatment consultant, she got back to me immediately, went through everything, set up initial consultation, we travelled to Prague where a taxi met us at the airport took us to hotel and clinic, Veronika organized the hotel for us. Wheels were set in motion for us to have IVF treatment in February. We went to Prague for 10days, we booked an apartment, we were given a Chech phone and again Veronika organized lifts for us, making this stress free. Egg retrieval was done Friday of our first week and transfer the following Wednesday. The clinic looked after everything for us, they are so professional and so caring. They want to help you have a baby. We did 4 pregnancy tests this week and we are pregnant! The clinic give you the medication needed and go through everything with you. I would highly recommend the clinic it is so much cheaper for egg donation than in Ireland.Maria, IrelandMarch 2, 2018
