What is Microinjection, to Whom Is It Applied?
Microinjection is a method which is applied when fertilization could not be obtained in IVF treatment or if there is low number, movement or shape in man, or if correct respond could not be obtained and pregnancy could not be reached in several inoculations applied consecutively.

For that reason, first if all the eggs are grown as in the case of IVF, after growing, they are collected under general anesthesia, after being collected, there are certain group of cells that secrete hormone around the eggs, since these will distort the appearance these cells are cleaned under microscope.

 

These are called granulosa teka cells, but not all of us need to know this. Finally these cells are cleaned and the ovum comes before us in its full form, that could be seen under bare microscope. It is that time that we understand whether the quality of this ovum is good or bad, whether it is mature or not, whether it could be used or not, eggs which could be used afterwards are separated aside and of the sperms that come from the man, those with the best shape of the ejaculate taken that day and the ones with the smoothest movement are selected.

 

For example, if we have 10 eggs in our hand, 10 smooth sperms are selected and they are taken one at a time, they are injected in such a way to be 1 in each egg and the microinjection process is completed.
