Unexplained infertility

Hi I am 35 years, my husband 36 years old. We have one 7 year old son who was conceived naturally. We've been trying for 4 years now, one failed IVF due to ceased embroy on day three. So could not go through transfer, all results are good for both of us. What are the chances if we go for ICSI this time?

Please note that all the answers we give are on a generic basis only, as we cannot provide more in-depth answers without access to your medical history. If you need a more detailed response, tailored to you, we would recommend a consultation with one of our Fertility Specialists for more comprehensive medical advice.

Without more information on your case it is difficult to advise you.  ICSI is used primarily as a treatment for male factor infertility.  As you have conceived naturally and have had fertilisation with IVF, ICSI may not be appropriate. I would suggest that you seek advice from a fertility doctor with all your medical records.
