A light hearted tale of a serious matter told beautifully.

I'm sure you have, but just wanted to see if you have looked into this?

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) at Our Durham, NC Infertility Clinic
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a form of gamete (sperm and egg) micromanipulation that involves the direct injection of a single sperm into the cytoplasm (inside portion) of an oocyte.

ICSI is used for several reasons:

Previous in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles failed to alleviate infertility factors. While it is true that ICSI may have a lower fertilization rate than in vitro fertilization (IVF) when someone has had high infertility in a previous cycle, the ICSI procedure can improve the chances of fertilization. If normal fertilization will occur through standard in vitro fertilization (IVF), then ICSI will not be useful. ICSI adds an additional cost to the cost of an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.
