We received some news that my partner has 1% sperm morphology... Our doctor recommended ICSI however there seems to be a few risks associated with ICSI, specifically with genetic or chromosomal abnormalities. Our doctor mentioned that these risks do not apply to male factors related to morphology but more so to low motility or low sperm count. Is this true? Has anyone else been in the same boat?
As well, is there any other testing that should be completed prior to ICSI? And any thoughts on Split ICSI? Is it worth it?

Am currently trying to figure out what worked for others in similar situations as me ?
