Doctor:Ok, let me brief you.
Doctor:Your motility rates, vitality and normal sperms cells are good, however the sperm count is low.
Doctor:Theoretically since just a single, actively (progressively) motile, normal sperm is required to cause pregnancy.
Doctor:Therefore, with your sperm analysis report you can be able to parent your child.
Doctor:However the success results of IUI or natural conceiving is less when sperm counts are less than 5 million.
Doctor:So with your values, I think intracytoplasmic sperm injection will give better results than intrauterine insemination (IUI).
User:u mean to say ICSI?
Doctor:That being said, since the doctor who performs the procedure strongly influence the results of procedure you can discuss the reports with the infertility specialist and go ahead with the right procedure.
Doctor:Yes, ICSI can give you better results than IUI>
User:i feel it is very expensive than IUI, am i wrong?
Doctor:Yes, ICSI is bit more complex than IUI and is also more expensive.
User:so i felt once will try with IUI
User:whats your suggestion doctor?
Doctor:I hope I have clarified the issue.
