ICSI

Sarc - December 12

A few years ago I was tested for male infertility. I was told that I did not produce sperm. There was no blockage found via ultrasound. At that point I stopped with the testing and just decided that it was not in the cards for me and my wife to have a child. Recently, I decided to obtain a second opinion. I saw a new doc who sent me for a new sperm analysis. He called with the results and said I DID produce, but that I had low counts. I did not ask what they were, I was just excited that I produce. He asked me to have one more additional analysis done to see if ICSI would be possible. The results of this analysis from the ARTS dept came back stating I was OK for ICSI. My question is, what specifically were they looking for to determine if I was OK for ICSI.

Thanks

You would need to have sperm, which appeared to have an appropriate chromosome complement, based on the size of the sperm head. It is a crude estimate, but all we have.
Good luck.
