Called the hospital for an update on my partner and my tests so far and they said my results were fine but my partners sample results showed low morphology. The receptionist couldn't confirm what that means for us until we see the specialist at the end of April. Has anyone come across this in their journey to IVF and if so, did it change the process?

I am guessing that you’ve not started ivf treatment yet? I think that in theory low morphology would mean that you and your partner would need icsi as opposed to ivf xx
No we are at the referal stage just now. I'v never heard of icsi. What does that mean? Xx
I agree with Vicky it would probably mean ICSI, my partner had a very low count as well as poor motility and morphology and we went down the ICSI route.
Very much like IVF except they inject the egg with the selected sperm.
Good luck xxx
Ok thank you. Does it hurt? Xxx
They inject the egg outside your body, but they do use a needle to collect your eggs from your follicles, usually under sedation so you don’t feel anything but it can be uncomfortable afterwards.
I went through my menopausal when I was 12 so no eggs I'm afraid. Will need to be a doner.
Don’t worry, my partner has low count, motility and morphology. Hat trick! We managed to get two embryos
