What is it called when they take the male out of the male sperm to inject into the woman?
If the man gave the semen sample by masturbating, it's called IUI. If the sperm was removed surgically, that removal procedure is called MESA. Then a sperm is injected through an egg removed in an egg retrieval via a process called ICSI, and the fertilized embryo is put into the woman. That process as a whole is called IVF, but IVF doesn't always include ICSI.
How much does sperm extraction cost?
Typically between $6,000-$16,000 in the US for TESE. This avergae is WITHOUT ICSI & IVF, which is usually required for men undergoing the TESE procedure of sperm extraction. IVF with ICSI can range from $6,000-$12,000 PER CYCLE. IVF requires 50,000-100,000 sperm per cycle (most common with men with low sperm counts). ICSI is a procedure where only one sperm is needed and injected directly into one egg and inserted into the uterus. This procedure is common with men experiencing azoospermia (zero sperm counts). Sperm extraction has 65% success rates of sperm retreival with men with azoospermia.

How effective is a reversal vasectomy?
Vasectomy reversals can be very effective, but it depends on the patient's health and the skill and experience of the surgeon performing the procedure . In simple cases of young vasectomies (<8 years old), up to 99% rates of return of motile sperm to the ejaculate can be achieved. Even in older, more complicated vasectomy reversal cases (<16 years), 65% rates of return of motile sperm to the ejaculate can be obtained Pregnancy rates after reversals are not quite the same as those achieved with male partners that have not had prior reversals but are very close. In most cases, vasectomy reversals are cheaper and more effective than the alternative, which is IVF-ICSI. Typically, IVF-ICSI is twice the cost of a reversal, is a single attempt at pregnancy and has an associated "multiple" (twins or higher) rate of 30-40% compared to 1% with reversal.

Can women with pcos have children?
Yes it is very possible difficult but possible I have several friends that have PCOS including me and even my mother and grandmother as you prob figured out my grandmother and mother both had children, I have not been as lucky yet but most of my friends have they have tried it all IVF, IVF-ICSI, Clomid, Metformin, you name it they have done it so YES it is very possible to have a child if you have PCOS
What does amorphous bent neck sperm abnormality mean?
This study evaluated the influence of chemical activation of oocytes in cases with abnormal sperm morphology and previous low intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) fertilization rate. Fertilization, early cleavage and embryo quality were assessed according to individual abnormal sperm morphology with or without chemical activation of oocytes after ICSI in 56 consecutive cycles with different types of abnormal sperm morphology (A = amorphous head, B = tapered head, C = bent neck) having a history of previous failed or low fertilization rate. Chemical activation significantly increased fertilization rate in subgroup A (82.7 versus 36.7%, P = 0.0008) and subgroup B (81.7 versus 39.3%, P = 0.005), but not in subgroup C (48.2 versus 49.4%). There was no effect on early cleavage (25 h after injection) or on the number of good embryos on day 2 (48 h after injection) in the different subgroups. Chemical activation of oocytes after ICSI in selected cases with previous history of failed or low fertilization rate and 100% sperm abnormality may increase fertilization rate in some sperm morphological abnormalities (amorphous head and tapered head) but not in others (bent neck). However, there was no significant effect on early cleavage or number of good embryos in all subgroups.

How do you get pregnant when your husband has Cystic Fibrosis?
My fiance has cystic fibrosis and when planning our future, I couldn't imagine not having children and making our own family together. I continued research on the web and found that adoption may not be our only answer. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), is the newest form of in vitro fertilization specified for males who have CF. Here is the website: http://esiason.org/newsResourcesInfert.html It provides the research information and even costs. I hope this helps out!
What is the success rate for IVF with male factor infertility?
Since when doing IVF the best eggs are selected therefore male factor infertility shouldn't cause to much of a problem, there is also a form of IVF called ICSI where a woman undergoes IVF and specialists literally inject a sperm into the egg with a microinjector. As such, this procedure is often, but not always, used to treat male infertility, specifically disorders relating to the testes and sperm production.
What is the chances of concieving twins on IVF ICSI?
Is it true that you can only have 2 embryos transferred in the US? We were looking to have three with the thought of having twins or triplets intentionally. No, it is not true. A good reproductive endocrinologist will transfer as many that can be SAFELY transferred. A good one would never implant more than two, if he feels sure all three could possibly take (with high grade embryos). Also it is depends on healthyness of body. If the body is not capable to keep those embryos to long term period then it is not posible.

Asked in Science
What is Fresh embryos?
Embryos can be either "fresh" from fertilized egg cells of the same menstrual cycle, or "frozen", that is they have been generated in a preceding cycle and undergone embryo cryopreservation, and are thawed just prior to the transfer. The outcome from using cryopreserved embryos has uniformly been positive with no increase in birth defects or development abnormalities, also between fresh versus frozen eggs used for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Children born from vitrified blastocysts have significantly higher birthweight than those born from non-frozen blastocysts. When transferring a frozen-thawed oocyte, the chance of pregnancy is essentially the same whether it is transferred in a natural cycle or one with ovulation induction.
What to do when you think you have infertility?

Asked in HIV and AIDS
Can you get IVF when your partner is HIV-positive?
I am venturing a little outside of my comfort zone in answering this question; but it has been unanswered for a while, so I will answer it to the best of my ability and hope that someone else will feel inspired to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge. Yes, it is in theory still possible for an HIV-negative woman in this situation to benefit from IVF (in vitro fertilisation), IUI (intra-uterine insemination) and ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection). There are two options: DONOR SPERM The safest option, from the HIV-negative woman's point of view, is to conceive using a screened donor's sperm. In essence, this process would really be no different to the process she would undergo if her male partner were infertile. SPERM WASHING Not an easy choice - and certainly not a choice that anyone should proceed with if they have not had proper counselling - as it does still carry a very small theoretical risk of HIV transmission to the woman; but it is a process that has now been used successfully by many couples who are keen for the male partner to be the genetic father. The theory behind sperm washing is that the HIV infected material in a man's ejaculate is carried primarily in the seminal fluid, rather than in his sperm. Over a period of time, the man's ejaculate is collected and taken to a laboratory where it is 'washed' to remove the infectious seminal fluid. It is then stored until the woman is ovulating and it can be transferred to her womb by intra-uterine insemination (or if either partner has fertility problems, perhaps IVF or ICSI). As mentioned above, this process is not necessarily 100% foolproof and there is still a very small theoretical risk of HIV transmission .. but that caution given, it is also fair to mention that in the UK, where National Health Service fertility guidelines actively promote sperm washing as a way to reduce HIV transmission rates (and where almost half of sperm washing procedures are now publicly funded), there have been no reported instances of HIV being transmitted to either mother and baby by this process. If you look to the left of the screen, I have included a link to the 'Conception when the man is HIV-positive and the woman HIV-negative' page of HIV i-Base's excellent guide to 'HIV, pregnancy & women's health' (the full guide is also available there as a free .PDF download in English, Bulgarian, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Nepali, Romanian, Russian and Spanish).
Asked in Pregnancy, Pregnancy Tests
Could you still be pregnant if you had an icsi 17 days ago and you've done a test but it was negative?
Hello. Yes you could be pregnant. It is best to wait 3-4 weeks after you think conception may of taken place before you test for pregnancy. This way the test will be more accurate. The longer you wait the higher the HCG will be and the more accurate the pregnancy test will be. I know it is horrible waiting to test for pregnancy. But if you cant wait and would like to know now, then there is another option available to you. You can make a appointment with your doctor and request the Quantitative Beta HCG pregnancy test. This test can be done 5-7 days after suspected conception has taken place. This test is highly accurate and measures the amount of HCG in your blood. You will need to ask specifically for this test so write it down on a piece of paper if you cant remember the name. Once pregnancy has occured, the Embryo implants itself in your uterus 8-12 days after having sex and begins releasing HCG into your blood and spills HCG into your urine. This is why a blood test is more accurate. I hope I have helped you some. If I have then please recommend me. Good luck to you. :o)

Foundation Course: One passing the Final examination of ICSI you will need to undergo a practical training after which, you will be completely eligible for the Associate Membership of the Institute. : * The Training Orientation Programme (TOP) is for 5 days and is done before commencement of training. * This is followed by training for 15 months after the candidate has passed the Intermediate Examination or Final Examination. * There is a practical training for 3 months. This is after passing the Final examination and that too, for those, who have been exempted from undergoing the 15 months training. * There is a Training with Registrar of Companies (ROC), Stock Exchange, financial or banking institution for 15 days. * The Secretarial Modular Training Programme (SMTP) is conducted after the candidate has passed the Final Examination and completed the Training requirement. It is for 15 days. * Depending on the practical experience of the candidates, they can be exempted from training completely or partially. Candidate must be dedicated and skilled in writing and speaking good English. Bearing a moral character is important.

A Fellow Member of the Institute who is normally a senior pro can use the suffix FCS after his / her name. : Scope in India : With the onward march of globalization in India remaining unabated the corporate sector has witnessed tremendous growth. Numerous companies from diverse fields have emerged on the Indian economic scene and with it the complexities involved in the running of an organization have also skyrocketed. It is here that the role of a Company Secretary is so important to an organization or business house, since he is competent to provide sound advice on corporate, legal, secretarial, administrative and even tax related matters. While a Company Secretary can aspire to get employment opportunities in government accounts or law departments, he can become a Chairman or Managing Director of a Company or be a part of the esteemed Board of Directors of a Company. A budding and meritorious Company Secretary can hope to start his career with a monthly remuneration of Rs.20,000 - Rs.25,000. However, for an ordinary candidate, a monthly salary of Rs.10, 000 is almost guaranteed. Scope Abroad: Although Company Secretaries are in great demand in India, in USA, UK and other western countries the profession or the professionals do not find tailor made opportunities. This is because the Company Secretary course is based on the Companies Act 1956, which has its roots in the Indian legal and political system and does not have much relevance outside India. A qualified Company Secretary may however find employment opportunities similar to those available to Business Graduates in either USA, Australia UK or other European countries.
Asked in Obstetrics & Gynecology
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection?
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI, is a form of in vitro fertilization in which fertilization occurs outside of the body. First, egg cells are harvested and transferred to a special media in a laboratory dish. Within a few hours, a single sperm is injected through a fine needle into the center of an egg cell to aid in the process of fertilization. If successful, the cell will divide and form the beginning stages of an embryo. If necessary, the DNA of a single cell from an embryo may be checked to ensure that various genetic disorders are not present. Typically, several egg cells are harvested and fertilized at the same time then inserted back into the uterus to increase the chances that one will implant and develop into a successful pregnancy.
