Recently, April wrote in to Ask The Egg Whisperer a question. She and her husband are 40, and he was diagnosed with male factor oligoasthenoteratozoospermia (OAT). His sperm meet the criteria for IVF, and here is what she asks, "We were given surprisingly good odds for success and I’m skeptical.I’ve had one successful pregnancy 15 years ago. Our doctor gave us 60-70% chance of pregnancy using ivf, icsi and genetic testing of embryos. Do you feel this is an accurate assessment of our odds of success?

Or is the clinic just trying to get us to do ivf by sugar coating things?"
