It amazes me how aggressive IVF doctors have become.
I saw a patient today, who had bacteria in his semen culture( a completely pointless and useless test, which should not have been done in the first place.)
Because this did not clear up with antibiotics, the doctor referred him to a urologist, who advised him to do a TESA ( testicular sperm aspiration) in order to prevent any infection of the eggs !
This is uncalled for and ridiculous! When we prepare the sperm in the lab for doing IVF/ICSI
, the bacteria are removed as well, so the culture results do not not affect the treatment outcome !
