Who needs fertility tests and assessments?

Everyone! It is standard practice for us to assess each patient we treat. The reason for doing this is so that we can have a clear understanding of your fertility health. This will allow us to come up with the best treatment plan for you. In around half of all cases of unexplained infertility there is a male contributing factor, and so it is important that we test both partners.

Tests and Assessments we provide (for men)

Sperm Analysis

DNA Sperm Fragmentation

Sperm Analysis

A complete sperm analysis measures the quantity and quality of the fluid released during ejaculation. It evaluates both the liquid portion, called semen or seminal fluid, and the microscopic, moving cells called sperm.

DNA Sperm Fragmentation

The DNA sperm fragmentation investigation is a separate test to the semen analysis and can help us to identify if there is DNA damage present within the sperm which may be a contributing cause to infertility.
