Hello! This is my first time here. I hope you’re all doing well.
We’ve been ttc for almost five years. I have pcos and endo. He’s been diagnosed with low morph (2-4% on his analyses) and his sperm penetration assay (where they took his sperm to see how many could penetrate hamster eggs and only 3% did. His count is mediocre, his motility is really good, but we are dealing with his low morph. I know it’s not impossible to conceive with this, but do any of you have experience with this situation?
I have heard some RE’s think poor morph is nothing to worry about and assay results aren’t always reliable because it doesn’t accurately show that the sperm can’t penetrate human eggs.
Obviously, our best chance at pregnancy is IVF with ICSI. It’s highly doubtful we will do this on our own. (Our clinic is giving away one free IVF cycle to five different couples as part of their 25 year anniversary. Awesome, huh? We applied for it.)
Anyway, I am just looking for someone that may have some insight on this situation. Both of us come from fertile families.
