  1. Results are expressed as n(%) or mean (M) ± standard deviation (SD). A difference was considered significant (s) when P < 0.05; (ns): not significant
  2. LCLCG Low Centrally Located Cytoplasmic Granulation (CLCG) in a group of couples with oocytes exhibiting a low prevalence of CLCG of under 25%, HCLCG High CLCG in a group of couples with oocytes exhibiting a high prevalence of CLCG of over 75%, ICSI Intracytoplasmic Spermatozoa Injection, COS Controlled Ovarian Stimulation, FSH Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, AMH Anti-Müllerian Hormone, E2 Estradiol
  3. aSpermatozoa were evaluated by the Cohen-Bacrie modified morphology classification (normal forms ≥ 20%)
