What is ICSI?

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, more commonly known as ICSI, is a procedure where the sperm is directly injected into the egg, unlike IVF treatment where the sperm and eggs are left in a petri dish to fertilise on their own.

Around half of infertility cases are caused by sperm-related issues; ICSI is the most common and successful treatment for male infertility.

If you have any questions about ICSI at abc or how to start treatment please contact our experienced team who will be happy to help.

Frequently asked questions

The first step to starting treatment at our clinic is to book an Initial Consultation and Scan. This is a 45 minute appointment with a specialist Nurse Consultant.

The first part of the appointment includes an advanced Pelvic Assessment Scan which will help us assess your egg reserve, the health of your uterus, endometrium (lining of the womb), ovaries and follicles.

You will then have a consultation with your Consultant who will explain your results, discuss your medical history, answer any questions you may have and talk you through your individualised treatment plan.

If you are ready to go ahead, you can start treatment as soon as your next menstrual cycle.

You will be required to pay a deposit after your Initial Consultation and Scan to secure your Treatment Consultation. The outstanding amount will then be taken after your Treatment Consultation.

Please see our Terms and Conditions for details.

What we mean by ‘Low Cost’

abc IVF are a provider of high quality, ‘low cost’ fertility treatment. We define ‘low cost’ as meaning that our prices are at least 25% lower than the average cost of a cycle of IVF in the UK. We have determined the average cost of one cycle of IVF in the UK as being £5,000 as reported by the Competition and Markets Authority and the Human Fertility Embryo Authority (HFEA), the UK’s fertility sector regulator in September 2022 <link>. It is our aim to continue to be a ‘low cost’ IVF provider and keep our costs below other providers in the UK.

What we mean by ‘High Quality’

abc IVF are a provider of ‘high quality’, low cost fertility treatment. We define our treatment as 'high quality' based on a number of key measures and processes:

1. That our licensed centres achieve inspection ratings of 4 or 5 out of 5 by the Human Fertility Embryo Authority (HFEA), the UK Fertility regulator.

2. That our clinics have fully trained GMC and NMC registered Nurses, Doctors and Consultants supporting them.

3. That our facilities are modern and fully compliant with the current clinical guidelines.

4. That we use modern technology and equipment from leading manufactures.

What we mean by ‘Excellent Success’

abc IVF deliver ‘excellent success’ for our patients. We know that clinic’s success and success rates play an important roles in patients decision on which clinic to choose for their treatment, so we aim to be clear and transparent about how we define 'excellent success'.

The Human Fertility Embryo Authority (HFEA), the fertility sector regulator, displays on their website the verified data for clinical pregnancies and live births for every licensed clinic in the UK for the last few years. They provide a number of points of analysis for each clinic to show the key success measures for broad and specific age groups. abc ivf is a satellite clinic of the HFEA licensed clinic - Create Fertility, whose results can be found on the HFEA website (LINK). abc patients have their egg collection and embryo transfer procedures at the CREATE Fertility licensed centre, by Create Fertility clinicians, and as such the success rates noted for abc IVF clinics are those of  the licenced Create Fertility centre where treatment takes place.

We define “excellent” as exceeding national average success performance for live births per embryo transferred for all ages for the majority of clinics within the group, as shown on the latest verified year of data displayed on the HFEA website. Full details and further data can be found here.
