So our story.
We have 3 failed ICSI cycles behind us. Main problem is that all our embryos arrest prior to day 5.
We had to use ICSI due to male infertility.
The numbers have been similar over the the past two years despite numerous life style changes and vitamins
Count: between 3-6million/ml
Motility: is always good
Morphology: 0-1% so not good
There appears also a problem with the acrosome in about 50% of the sperm
FSH is 14,5
Testosterone and LH is normal
We recently had a DNA fragmentation test done and the results came back at 6% and 1%.
So that appears to be good. The % did was elevated after the washing of the sperm (15%)
RE says it is most likely an egg issue despite having each time around 15-25 follicles and no known female problems. We both have been karyotyped (normal)
He suggests using half donor sperm next time to see if there is an underlying not diagnosed sperm problem.
Normally when numbers are low the DNA % is also bad. That doesn't seem to be the case here. Any advice for us?
Husband has been taking:
Vitamine C, B, D, E, selenium, CoQ10, Maca, Carnitine, Arginine, Zinc, Pycnogenol
These vitamins appear not have had an influence on the count and morphology.
