In around a third of couples with infertility, the main problem lies with the man. In our experience, up to half of fertility cases involve a problem with the sperm.

Sperm test

In around a third of couples with infertility, the main problem lies with the man. In our experience, up to half of fertility cases involve a problem with the sperm.

This is usually because there are insufficient numbers of normal sperm available to fertilise the egg, or because of a problem with abnormally shaped sperm, sperm that doesn’t move well or a presence of antibodies.

We offer a detailed sperm analysis carried out in our accredited laboratory with a patient friendly report written by our expert Andrology team.

Advanced Sperm test

An advanced semen analysis is usually carried out for patients who are already under the care of a Fertility consultant. The analysis incorporates the same tests as the detailed semen analysis but also includes extra sperm preparation assessment. This additional test replicates the procedure carried out in the laboratory to prepare a semen sample for IUI, IVF or ICSI treatment. The advanced semen analysis therefore gives a better indication as to which treatment type may be most appropriate.

Hormone and genetic tests

Where we identify serious problems with sperm production we may request that you have further tests including hormonal, genetic and chromosomal tests.

DNA fragmentation test

In certain cases we may recommend you have a Sperm DNA fragmentation test.
