Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the psychological reactions of men undergoing intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) (n=18) or in-vitro fertilization (IVF) (n=22). Men monitored their psychological reactions daily for one complete treatment cycle from the first day of down-regulation until the outcome of treatment was known (approximately 52 days). The results showed that ICSI patients reported marginally more distress on the days prior to retrieval than the IVF patients. Other than this difference the pattern of results indicated that the psychological reactions of men undergoing ICSI or IVF were similar and that there was no need to manage these patients differently during treatment. However, ICSI patients may benefit from some reassuring comments on the days prior to retrieval when they showed more anticipatory anxiety.
