What are the main risks of ICSI?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 12/23/2016

The main problems or consequences that may result from ICSI are due to ovarian stimulation. This treatment, if not properly regulated, can lead to the so-called Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome .

Another problem is multiple pregnancy, the probability of which increases if the transfer is of more than one embryo. The twin pregnancy is more risky than the single pregnancy, so it is recommended to choose the number of embryos to choose responsibly and always considering the advice of the specialist.

Finally, the risk of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy is also slightly higher when applying ICSI compared to natural conception.
