I am a 39-year-old male with a low sperm count of 1.9 million. My blood work shows that I have a high FSH. Our doctor highly suggested that I get genetic testing done before we proceed with an IVF or an ICSI. I would like to know why he would suggest that.

Thank you doctor,
Considering my low sperm count and keeping in mind my wife’s age, the doctor recommended IVF and ICSI as soon as possible. He then asked me to have blood work done after the completion of the procedures. The blood work results came back showing that my FSH levels were slightly high at 8.8. Although he mentioned that the genetic testing was not required for us, he strongly recommended having it done. I am wondering why he is recommending the genetic testing if it is not required. Is there a possibility that genetic testing would let us know if IVF with ICSI would work or not?
