Hi Dr. Braverman,
I am getting ready to begin my first IVF with unexplained infertility. I am so nervous because I have not found anything wrong, and had lots of immune testing. I am afraid the eggs may just not be fertilizing. I have been reading about ICSI. Can a woman opt to have that done with her IVF? I really want this to work so I want to be able to do everything I can to increase my chances. THanks for your help!

Yes you can request ICSI and they will determine if it is necessary based on his seman analysis.

Thank you for your response? I am concerned that there is a problem with the eggs being that no other problems have been found. I do not want to waste a cycle. Is ICSI more effective for fertiliZation? I have read that it is usually used if there is a low sperm count. But will clinics do this even of there is not an issue with counts? Thanks!
