Can sperm with DNA fragmentation fertilize an egg?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 06/26/2018

Yes, it is not impossible, especially when the level of fragmentation is low or moderate. Sometimes, if the fragmentation index is low, it is possible that the egg cell compensates this alteration and fixes the damage after fertilization, which would result in a viable embryo.
