my DH has low sperm count (2mil) and robertsonian translocation 13/14. We were thinking of IUI but were told this would be unsuccessful due to such low sperm count. We have been advised our only option is IVF with ICSI and can also use PGD. Anyone have any thoughts on this or has been through it? Im interested to know what success rates are like and what others experiences have been...

Successful ivf with robertsonian translocation
Hi, my husband has low sperm count and robertsonian translocation 13/14
Our genetic counsellor said there wasn't a need in our case for pgd but ivf was the best option for us. He said if the baby was affected by the translocation we would miscarry immediately.
But I'm just wanted to let you know that we did ivf and we were successful we have a very healthy baby boy who is 4 months old.
wishing u all the best too!
