Re recommended DNA fragmentation, uro didn't feel needed. I recently did research and feel that it's needed! Uro on vacation and I already started stims!!! I thinks it's too late for this round!! Has anyone had this test...I'm freaking out...what if this is the problem....this is the perfect time to cycle and could this test be what we need!! Any thoughts, experiences, results. :roll:

I had that test done. My doc was not to particularly keen on it - it basically confirms what you already know - which is morphology and count is poor. DNA fragmentation just confirms it.

I had it done, my husband has bad morphology (4% normal) but the DNA fragmentation came back normal!

ICSI should fix our problem. I think its a nice test to have done.
