Really? What happens if you have three x chromosomes and how can it be a factor in male infertility? I must say that I have never heard of this sort of genetic disorder before!

three x chromosomes so your kids are xxx? or xxy?

this is accoriding to gettingpregnant: Klinefelter’s Syndrome affects male fertility as it results in the absence of, or low level of sperm in the ejaculate.

Men with this condition usually require some form of reproductive assistance like ICSI to get their partners pregnant.

so with the ICSI, the sperm is sorted? to make sure that the one that fertilizes the egg does not have three chromosomes?

ICSI can be performed if you have Klinefelter’s Syndrome in order to make sure that the genetal defect wont be passed to the children.
