#0 writes: We have instituted SCSA as a screening test for all new semen analysis as part of a clinic wide protocol. If abnormal, the men usually undergo vitamin treatment but unfortunately are not retested. Abnormal SCSA >15% always go to ICSI
#0 writes: initially in 2009- 2010 i did halosperm test for couple with poor reproductive outcome both in spontaneous and ART pregnancies and found DFI <20% had better prognosis [ among indian clients]. Now i don"t do halosperm test, instead i put the husband on anti oxidants and advise life style modification.
