Sperms per ampoule

Hello. I want to know when sperms are frozen and stored in ampoules. How many sperms do fertility centers store per ampoule. I gave a sample for ICSI treatment and I was told that they got 2 ampoules only. I suffer from a very low sperm count.

The number of sperm in each ampoule varies enormously between patients. If you have a very low sperm count the clinic will have optimised your freezing cycle by dividing the sperm sample into 2 ampoules. You should ask the clinic for more information and enquire if they would recommend freezing more samples.
