Is ICSI recommended for men with cryptozoospermia?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 05/12/2021

Yes, IVF-ICSI is the best reproductive option for men diagnosed with less than 100,000 sperm per mL of ejaculate, i.e. cryptozoospermia.

This fertility treatment only requires the same number of sperm as eggs to be fertilised, so a large number of sperm is not necessary.
