Hi Peter
I'm new here but have been reading your advice for a while now. Thankyou so much for a such a valuable service!

I'm 42, DP is 47 we have had 3 m/c after IVF/ICSI and are now moving on to DE. Do you have any thoughts on whether ICSI can cause m/c. All our tests have come back normal (apart from motility and morphology issues) but all 3 pregnancies failed within 10 weeks (advised probably due to old eggs). Should we consider DS as well as DE to maximise our chances?
Thanks, Kmilla

My pleasure

Ir doesn't cause miscarriage but if the DNA of the sperm injected is defective in any way that could cause problems. I would suggest soerm DNA fragnmentation studies before you move on to donor eggs.

Possibly an egg problem but without information on the pserm DNA this is really jumping to conclusions

Only id there is a true problem with your eggs.

Good luck!

Peter
