OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the outcome of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with sperm obtained by electroejaculation in men with psychogenic anejaculation. DESIGN: Retrospective clinical study. SETTING: In Vitro Fertilization Unit, Bikur Cholim Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel. PATIENT(S): Seven men with psychogenic anejaculation who underwent 16 sessions of electroejaculation in combination with ICSI. INTERVENTION(S): Electroejaculation, ICSI. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Semen analysis, ICSI, fertilization rates. RESULT(S): All patients had poor sperm motility. One hundred forty-seven oocytes were injected, with a fertilization rate of 27% (39/142). One ongoing pregnancy was achieved. CONCLUSION(S): Sperm obtained by electroejaculation have low motility and reduced fertilization potential. Nevertheless, ICSI should be offered to improve the possibility of successful pregnancy.
