To examine the diagnostic significance of several criteria of semen quality and to determine whether their prognostic value is eroded by the time interval between assessment and the attempt at in-vitro fertilization (IVF) with embryo transfer, 73 couples undergoing IVF and embryo transfer therapy were studied. The ability of human spermatozoa to achieve fertilization in vitro was examined in relation to the conventional semen profile, sperm morphology, the computer-aided assessment of sperm… CONTINUE READING
