Ovum Fertilization

After the retrieval of sperm and ovums, an essential step in in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment, called "Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)," is performed. During this stage, sperm is injected into the ovum using a specialized procedure. ICSI is an effective method commonly preferred in cases where there are issues related to sperm count or motility, as well as for couples who have previously experienced fertilization problems.

Ovums and sperm are kept together in a special environment for the process of fertilization to occur. This period is of critical importance for fertilization to take place and the development of the embryo to begin. Laboratory staff carefully monitor this process and ensure quality control at each step.

When fertilization occurs successfully, the egg cell begins to divide, forming an embryo. The embryo is carefully monitored and its development is examined in the laboratory. During this process, monitoring the embryo's cell divisions and development is essential for assessing the progress of the treatment and identifying potential complications.

Embryo development typically takes 3 to 5 days. Patients are provided with detailed information about the development process, and their active participation in the treatment progress is encouraged. Experts provide the necessary guidance to help patients understand the treatment process and actively participate in it, increasing their confidence in the treatment and reducing stress levels.

Every stage of in vitro fertilization treatment is guided by the experience and meticulous work of the expert medical team. The ICSI procedure is a method that increases the chances of success depending on the quality of sperm and eggs, offering new hope to couples hoping to have children. Collaborating with the medical team and active participation in the treatment process are crucial for the success of the treatment.
