Testing for male infertility
Diagnosis of male infertility
There can be a number of reasons why couples fail to conceive. In men, the cause may be low sperm motility or a low sperm count. A semen analysis will reveal the possible causes of your infertility so that we can recommend further appropriate tests and examinations.
Before any examination, we will ask you about your medical history so that we can recommend the right tests and treatment. We will ask you about any serious illnesses, allergies, surgeries, current medication, injuries or testicular pain. Your medical history may reveal the causes of your infertility.
Semen analysis (spermiogram)
The basic examination for men is a semen analysis. Insufficient ejaculate, low sperm count or lack of motility are common causes of infertility in men. A semen analysis will reveal the real cause of male infertility.
Semen culture analysis
Some men may suffer from infectious diseases of the male reproductive organs. Infectious diseases often have a negative effect on fertility and sperm quality. A semen culture analysis will help prove or refute the presence of these infectious diseases.
Andrology deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders and diseases of the male reproductive organs, excretory system and genitals. The aim is to rule out diseases of the epididymis, testis or prostate as the main cause of infertility. In the event of a positive result, we will provide you with top quality care at a partner medical institution.
Genetic testing (screening)
Genetic testing is recommended for couples who have a history of genetic disorders in the family. However, genetic testing can also reveal possible predispositions to genetic disorders that have not yet been diagnosed.
You will begin by talking to a geneticist, who will go through your family and personal history. This is followed by the collection of a blood sample to determine karyotype and for chromosome analysis. We will then recommend the best method of treatment based on these results.
Hormonal disorders are rarely the cause of male infertility. We will determine the need for a hormonal examination based on blood tests.
