The Bridge Clinic introduced Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) to Nigeria with the birth of the Emekwue twins in 2000 and since then thousands of couples have benefitted from the procedure. The interesting thing is that the procedure can help couples with the most abnormal semen parameters including men with azoospermia when there are no sperm cells in the ejaculate.
An interesting extension to ICSI is the novel process of intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) which allows for more advanced sperm assessment and subsequent selection as the sperm cells are viewed under a microscope under significantly higher magnification giving the biologists the opportunity to select the best sperm cell for injection of the egg.

The role that vitamins play in spermiogenesis, the final stage of development of the sperm cell, has been further explored and revolutionary health technologies have been developed to foster the development of healthy sperm cells. One of such novel technologies is the brand Fertilovit® M (for men) and Fertilovit ® F for women. Fertilovit ® M contains a combination of vitamins and vital substances which serve dual functions; the promotion of healthy sperm development and the protection of sperms from detrimental oxidative stress. Furthermore it boosts the production of antioxidants in the body and stabilized the male genitourinary tract.
