No, it does not have to be the case. If the motile sperm count (REM) after capacitation of the semen sample with oligospermia is higher than 3-5 million, it would even be possible to perform intrauterine insemination (IUI). For this, it is also necessary to take into account the characteristics of the woman, who must be under 35-38 years of age and have no fertility problems.
On the other hand, conventional in vitro fertilization (IVF) could also be performed, but, especially in cases of severe or severe oligospermia, the most indicated technique would be ICSI.
