    The prevalence of infertility is 12-15% in sexually active couples. When, a subgroup analysis is done, 50% of infertility can be ascribed to male factor or a combination of male and female factor. With the growing trend of male factor infertility and the desire for infertile couples to reproduce, assisted reproductive technology provides a means to overcome these challenges. Several techniques exist depending on the extent of the infertility. For cases of severe oligospermia or even azoospermia, a combination of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic injection is used. There has been birth of more than 4 million babies worldwide using the assisted reproductive techniques. In the United States alone 1% of the total babies born each year are conceived through ART However, there are very low rates of successful implantation and pregnancy per transferred embryo in in vitro fert..
