In brief: Sperm DNA fragments

Sperm fragmentation may be due to cigarette smoking, varicocele [dilated scrotal veins] & heat exposure.
Often the cause is unknown. High levels are associated with low pregnancy rates unless IVF & ICSI is used. The miscarriage rate is slightly higher. If the cause is known, fix it. If not, you may wish to consider IVF & ICSI for the best results.
