Would you choose to use ICSI as a method to have a child? Why or why not?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether an individual or couple should choose ISCI as a method to have a child.

Introduction: Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ISCI) is an effective method of ART which is used to treat the male infertility problems of low sperm count or motility. In this procedure, an egg is injected with a carefully selected single sperm from the male partner. The embryo develops in an incubator and then transferred to the uterus of the female partner.

Explanation of Solution

The reasons that an individual or couple should choose ISCI as a method to have a child are as follows:

  • • There is no requirement of donation of gametes from a third person. So, the couple becomes legal and genetic parents of the baby.
  • • The success rate in ISCI is high.
  • • The procedure is simple and involves minimal risk.
  • • The method involves the fertilization of a single egg. Hence, the risk of multiple pregnancies gets reduced.

The reasons that an individual or couple should not choose ISCI as a method to have a child are as follows:
