Male infertility tests

How do you get to know if your sperms are normal and functional?

Medical history
At a male infertility clinic, the doctors will first go through your medical history and medical records and have a detailed discussion with you. After this, the doctor might ask you to do one or more male infertility tests, including the semen analysis tests.

Semen Analysis
You will be asked to ejaculate semen into a clean container. The semen will then be analysed at the lab. If the quantity and quality (shape as well as movement) of the sperms are normal, then they will check if there is any problem with the transport of the sperms. This might include looking for any possible blockages and for any abnormality in veins in the genital area by physical examination.

Testicular biopsy
In certain cases, a biopsy will have to be performed to identify factors that might be contributing to male infertility.

Hormone analysis
Blood tests may also be carried out to assess the level of hormones.

Specific tests
The movement of the sperms might also at times be affected by the production of antibodies against the sperms. For this, you will have to undergo tests to identify the presence of anti-sperm antibodies

Genetic testing
At times infertility may be caused by faulty genes. Genetic tests are carried out to check such a possibility.

In certain cases, transrectal ultrasound tests, scrotal ultrasound, bone mineral density tests, and a vasography test may be performed.
