-2. What is the difference between "in vitro fertilization" and "intracytoplasmic "sperm injection"?
sperm injection
In the IVF technique, the oocyte and a calculated number of sperm are placed together in a petri dish in a nutrition-based medium for the fertilization process to take place. However, in cases where the sperm count, motility and morphology are poor, the chances of fertilization with IVF decrease.


In ICSI, a single sperm is directly injected into the cytoplasm of an oocyte. ICSI overcomes problems of low or no sperm count, low or no motility and poor shape of the sperm. ICSI is also helpful in cases of egg problems.
