The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection Procedure (ICSI) Cost in India starts from US $3,200 and varies depending on your medical history, investigations required, doctor, facility and the city where you choose to get the treatment done.
Factors that affect ICSI Treatment cost in India
An important expense when it comes to your ICSI cost in India is going to be your doctor's fees. IndiCure recommends only experienced and skilled IVF experts who are capable of delivering successful results. However, the cost of the procedure varies depending on the experience of the doctor and the approach to treatment.
Ultrasound, Blood tests & Other investigations
A significant portion of the overall cost of the ICSI procedure arises from various tests done before the procedure to check if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Post-procedure expenses may include fertility medications and follow-up consultations.
Having your ICSI procedure performed in an accredited medical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the initial quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

See How it Works
What is Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) ?
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI, is a procedure that involves injecting a single live sperm directly into the center of a human egg. This fertilized egg is then transplanted into the female's body.
ICSI is particularly useful for couples with severe male factor infertility. It is also helpful for couples who have had no success with previous IVF attempt(s). High success rate in ICSI has made it one of the most popular procedures.
Many couples with serious male factor infertility problems have seen successful pregnancies with the ICSI treatment. Fertilization rates of 60 to 80 percent of all eggs injected are currently being accomplished, which is identical to fertilization with normal sperm, and pregnancy rates are comparable to those reported with IVF in couples with no male factor infertility.
When is ICSI Treatment required ?
In the case of male factor infertility with an abnormal semen analysis, ICSI is regarded as absolutely important. Patients are opting for ICSI for a variety of reasons other than male factor infertility, such as:
Poor IVF fertilization in the past
Variable sperm counts
Infertility that isn't explained
Am I a good Candidate?
Men with serious infertility concerns, such as a low sperm count, are ideal candidates for ICSI. Men with sperm motility abnormalities, sperm development problems, or an obstruction that prevents sperm from being ejaculated, such as a vasectomy, are also prospects.
ICSI may be beneficial to couples who have not had success with previous in vitro fertilization attempts. Couples who want to test for specific genetic abnormalities are also candidates for ICSI treatment.
How is ICSI Treatment done?
Injection for inducing final follicle maturation
Egg and Sperm Retrieval
Fertilization Process and Embryo Culture
The first step involves ovarian stimulation. During this step, the doctor will make an appointment to do an ultrasound and blood test to check the quantity and size of the eggs, and whether they are mature for further procedures. After verifying that the eggs are large enough, an hCG injection will be given 36 hours before the egg retrieval surgery to promote complete maturation.
The retrieval of eggs and sperm is the next step. During this process, the female will be made to sleep. The doctor will use a vaginal ultrasound to find the location and determine the number of eggs. The eggs are aspirated out of the vaginal canal using a needle. Sperm is, on the other hand, collected in a private room.
Following the egg and sperm retrieval, the embryologist will choose the healthiest egg and sperm to fertilize by injecting only one best sperm directly into the egg with a microneedle. The embryo will either be put back into the uterine cavity or frozen until a future need arises. After that, an abdomen ultrasound is performed to determine the best site for embryo implantation. The embryo is then transferred to the uterus through the cervix (does not require anesthesia).
What is the Recovery after ICSI Treatment like?
ICSI cycles might take anywhere from four to six weeks to complete. The egg and sperm retrieval procedures will take around a half-day for you and your spouse at the clinic. For the embryo transfer operation, you will often be asked to return in two to five days.
What Results Can I Expect from ICSI Treatment?
Many couples with difficult male factor infertility issues have been able to conceive thanks to the ICSI technique. Fertilization rates of 60 to 80 percent of all eggs injected are currently being accomplished, which is identical to fertilization with normal sperm, and pregnancy rates are comparable to those reported with IVF in couples with no male factor infertility.

Frequently Asked Questions
The way the sperm fertilizes the egg is the main difference between IVF and ICSI. The egg and sperm (which are abundant) are left in a laboratory dish to fertilize on their own in IVF. The selected sperm is directly injected into the egg during ICSI.
ICSI has a high success rate in assisting sperm and egg fertilization. However, many other factors, including the woman's age and whether she has any reproductive issues, still play a role in a healthy pregnancy, just as they do with IVF. ICSI has success rates that are pretty similar to IVF.
The procedure takes around 4 - 6 weeks for one cycle of ICSI.
Extracting sperm and implanting it in a mature egg takes only half a day. No hospitalization is needed, the procedure is done on an Outpatient basis.
When ICSI embryos are compared to non-ICSI embryos, there appears to be no difference in overall embryo quality.
ICSI procedure- needle aspiration and injection may cause some discomfort to the patient. The anesthesiologist will use anesthetic and sedative drugs to make the egg retrieval procedure as painless as possible.
After 12-14 days after the embryo transfer, the doctor will schedule a blood test to assess the hCG hormone level. The test will reveal whether the pregnancy is successful or not.
You should be able to travel after at least one day of rest.
There are some risks to consider. First, a small percentage of eggs - usually less than 5% - may be destroyed as a result of the needle insertion during the ICSI method. Second, the total risk of having a baby with an X or Y chromosome defect is 0.8 percent, or eight per 1000, which is four times the rate found with spontaneous conception.

Both of us were very pleased with the professional care provided to us from the first email to enquiry to the moment we stepped foot in India. We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
