Question about SCSA DNA fragmentation test - bad result

Hi to all - I am new to this board and am transitioning over from the over 40 board as my DH and I slowly inch towards trying DE at Cornell. I am currently a patient of Dr. Check. My DH recently got the results back of the SCSA/ DNA Fragmentation test, which results were TERRIBLE. 34.9%. My question to you all is whether any of you would move forward with DE with fragmentation at this level. I am now considering OE and DS, as a possible alternative/side-by-side option. DS/DE is not something I want to consider.

Thanks in advance!
