How to use the MAGENTA score when there is male infertility


We know about a third of infertility cases are related to male factor, or sperm quality issues.

In fact, when this is so significant, our only option sometimes is IVF, or specifically, ICSI where we select a high-quality looking sperm and inject it into the egg.

We reflexively assume that the lack of success in IVF cycles with male factor are related to sperm, but, in fact, that’s only part of the equation.

Using the MAGENTA™ score, which is an objective, quantifiable oocyte AI tool, can give you the egg side of the equation when you’re trying to decide whether it was the sperm or the egg that contributed to the lack of success.
