[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Three hundred thirty patients underwent in vitro fertilization in our centre since 1985. Fifty two percent of them presented an abnormal spermogram (sperm count less than or equal to 20 X 10/ml; mobility less than 40%; teratospermia greater than 60%). In those cases, lack of fertilization is statistically increased but pregnancy rate per transfer is similar to this observed with pure female cases. Sperm count, mobility and teratospermia influence the success rate but are not sufficient criteria of ability to fertilize. On the other hand, hamster test is without predictive interest.
