Fertilization with the ICSI method (intracytoplasmic sperm microinjection) offers higher success rates to patients with teratozoospermia, by selecting a normal sperm and injecting it directly into the egg.
Teratozoospermia or teratospermia is an increase in abnormal sperm in a man's semen.
This is diagnosed when the sperm with abnormal morphology exceeds 96% and compromises fertility because the majority of abnormal sperm are incapable of traveling to the egg and penetrating it.
Although we are not sure of all the reasons for teratozoospermia, certain factors can affect sperm quality, such as:
It is diagnosed through a monogram or seminal fluid analysis. It is recommended that the man not have ejaculated between three and seven days before the analysis, but not for more than seven.
The morphology of the sperm is analyzed according to the WHO criteria, which establish that:
