I have finished my first IVF cycle and the result was negative, is it time to move to ICSI or should I try again with IVF?

It depends on the fertilization rate, if it has been correct (≥65%) it would not be strictly necessary. However, today, the ICSI technique is indicated in almost all cycles to avoid total fertilization failures with conventional IVF, which occur in 5-10% of the cases (data from the Spanish Fertility Society Registry – Registro Sociedad Española de Fertilidad, SEF 2016).
