The samples will be evaluated under high magnification
The semen samples will be evaluated according to the 2010 WHO reference values. After ICSI 200 spermatozoa of each sample will be analyzed under high magnification (MSOME - x6600) and graded into four groups according to the presence or size of the vacuoles. Grade I: normal form and no vacuoles; grade II: normal form and ≤ 2 small vacuoles; grade III: normal form > 2 small vacuoles or at least one large vacuole and grade IV: large vacuole and abnormal head shapes or other abnormalities.
- Pregnancy rates [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Number of clinical pregnancy rate divided by the number of couples in which embryo transfer was performed.
- Implantation rates [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Number of gestational sacs divided by the number of transferred embryos.
