What Is The Role Of Sperm In Getting Pregnant And Fertility Treatment?

The role of sperm in reproduction is to deliver the male's DNA to the egg, to keep the DNA protected, and to supply specific instructions for the early development of the fertilized egg. At times, men may have a low sperm count or women can have a hostile environment for the sperm, in these cases intrauterine insemination, IVF, or ICSI can be performed in order to ensure conception, explains Dr. Seth Levrant with his clear analogy of a winning lottery ticket. Dr. Seth Levrant participates in the clinic Partners in Reproductive Health in Munster, IN and Tinley Park, IL.
