Interesting about frozen sperm and re PICSI . . .

Response to at many clinics, frozen sperm = automatic ICSI


Then that would make sense b/c it was definitely frozen sperm for my cycle. My understanding of PICSI is that it attempts to mimic the environment in which sperm bind to the oocyte in natural fertilization, a point at which many sperm will, uh, flunk, so the embryologist has a better chance of selecting a mature spermatozoon. I would find that reassuring, but I guess it must not work that well if clinics aren't using it. Maggie (in VA)
