It's hard to compare because for the couples who have IVF with ICSI their chances of conceiving with standard IVF is lower/non existent anyway. For example they often use ICSI for couples where the bloke has had a vasectomy, where they do TESA (testicular sperm aspiration), where they extract one or two sperm and inject them into the egg.

Some reports say that there is s slightly higher risk of the ICSI child being born with a disability/medical condition, because a human (rather than mother nature) determines which egg is matched with which sperm. But other reports say there is no link. So.....?

(PS How's Miss Lucy?? I need pictures hon!!)
