Is IMSI possible with sluggish sperm?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 07/20/2018

Yes, IMSI is possible with sperm samples that contain sluggish sperm, that is, samples with asthenozoospermia, as long as it is indicated for the reasons explained above.

The main purpose of IMSI is to select the sperm cells with the best morphology only. To select sperms with progressive motility, however, conventional ICSI is the technique of choice.
