Male factor infertility accounts for about 30% of problems with conception. In situations where couples struggle to get pregnant, one solution could be suggesting a comprehensive evaluation of the male partner’s fertility.
How Does Our Fertility Assessment Go?
1. Starting With…
Our comprehensive examination for male fertility comprises an in-depth medical history, testing of blood samples to identify infections, and assessment of the sperm (semen analysis).
2. Semen Analysis
A semen analysis is an important aspect of the investigations. Several significant indicators are assessed through this procedure, such as:
3. Additional Testing
Additional testing may be required if there is a problem with the sperm. This may include:
DNA fragmentation assay
Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)
Based on the outcome of the sperm analysis, we may suggest assisted reproductive technology, where either the patient’s semen or donated sperm is retrieved and employed in fertilizing an egg utilizing any of these techniques:
If a male has a low sperm count and/or quality, artificial insemination can be employed. In this medical process, a concentrated sperm sample is deposited directly inside the uterus of the female partner for fertilization.
In the course of IVF, eggs that have reached maturity are retrieved from the ovaries and exposed to sperm in a laboratory setting. The embryo that emerges is subsequently implanted into the uterus of the female individual undergoing treatment.
To enhance the success rate of in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection is frequently incorporated. The process involves directly injecting a single, chosen sperm into an egg’s cytoplasm to increase fertilization rates.
