In brief: Can use both

Because abnormal sperm function may be a cause for "unexplained infertility, " there is a higher risk of failed fertilization when "conventional" fertilization is used for ivf, so some doctors recommend icsi (injecting a sperm directly into the egg).
Others recommend icsi on only half of the eggs, which protects against the risk and also reveals whether icsi is needed in any future cycles.
