Below-average sperm concentration, movement, size and or shape making it can difficult for sperm to fertilize an egg.

Unexplained infertility

Unexplained infertility means no cause of infertility has been found despite evaluation for common causes.

Genetic Testing.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis and ivf is a procedure that screens for certain genetic problems. a.

Fertility preservation.

Due to Fertility preservation for cancer or health conditions, eggs fertilized and frozen as embryos for future use.
