Microinjection (ICSI)

Microinjection (ICSI)

 

The term IVF refers to the combination and fertilization of sperm and eggs in a laboratory environment, rather than in a natural environment within the body. While a certain number of moving sperm is expected to be placed around the eggs obtained in the IVF process, a single sperm cell is placed inside the egg with the help of special micro tools in the microinjection process. In this way, fertilized eggs obtained outside the body are kept in special nutritious fluids (cultural environment) for a certain period of time, allowing them to be divided and then placed in the uterus in order to maintain normal development of the embryos that develop.

IVF is never a cure for miracles. Many meanings are loaded in both written and visual media and social media besides the values that should have IVF application. Since the chance of pregnancy is not 100%, stubborn and wrong campaigns are organized for patients who cannot conceive and in a sense hope is being trafficked. The day doesn’t go by that there’s no mention of miracle treatments for IVF on TV, newspapers, social media. Many methods such as embryo glue, pregnancy vaccine, chip technology, stem cell, precursor sperm cell use (ROSI) etc. are actually only at the research level and whose scientific efficacy has not been proven.
