With 4% normal morphology, and 77% unfragmented sperm, is it useful to retest shortly before a treatment sample is provided?

 

  • What is the lowest acceptable morphology percentage to proceed with a cycle using ICSI?
  • What is the highest fragmented amount that would be acceptable?

What is the relationship between morphology and DNA fragmentation?

 

Thanks for any insight!

With regards to fragmentation, the lab report I received stated that results showing 20-30% fragmentation mean that someone is a good candidate for IVF. It also stated that anything above 30% is not good (low chance for success).  I'm not sure about the answers for the other questions. Hopefully the andrologist will chime in. Best of luck.
