IVF or ICSI?

We have been referred for IVF as I have ovulatory problems. We have been told we would be having ICSI as on my husband's latest seaman analysis he was slightly lower than average but nothing to worry about (his previous one was a good result) would you therefore recommend ICSI or conventional IVF?

If you have been recommended by your doctor to have ICSI then I would suggest your take this advice. Your doctor will have looked at all your medical history to make this decision and not just from your semen analysis result. It is difficult for me to recommend IVF or ICSI without more information.
