What are the factors positively influencing a successful implant of the embryo in an icsi IVF procedure?

What are the factors positively influencing a successful implant of the embryo in an icsi IVF procedure?

Several: Age of female most important, ovarian reserve tests (fsh, amh, afc), stimulation factors, excess embryos for freezing, number and quality of embryos, day of transfer, chromosome screening, technique of transfer, and ejaculated vs testicular sperm. Also, icsi overused, so avoid it if possible - about 2-4% higher delivery without icsi. Icsi is just the technique to inseminate the egg. Best wishes. ...Read more
