My husband has a low count (500,000). The gyneacologist that I saw concluded that we would need ICSI, but the urologist that my husband later saw said that we would be good candidates for IVF due to good motility (75%). So we are now rather confused.

Does anyone know how low is low (if you get my drift), i.e. when do you need ICSI rather than IVF? I realise that everyone is different, but it might help to have a general idea before deciding what clinic. Due to financial reasons egg-sharing is my only option and in some clinics icsi is included in the price and others the price is cheaper, but icsi extra.

Many thanks.

With that type of count I would recommend ICSI as to do IVF, may put you at risk of failed fertilisation and if finances are tight, that is the last thing you want as you would then be having to consider another cycle without ever getting to embryo transfer.
