The basic test to assess a male’s fertility is the semen analysis.
A semen analysis assesses a male's sperm for quality and chances of conception.
Men are asked to produce a sample of semen in our private room. The semen is then looked at down the microscope by an embryologist. A report will be written to show the number of sperm (the ‘count’) the way the sperm is moving (motility) and the number of sperm that look normal (morphology). We also assess the sperm to see if there are antibodies present that cause the sperm to stick together.
This semen analysis will give your doctor important information about your fertility, and if you are seeking treatment, will also help the doctor decide which type of treatment is right for you.
When to seek help
If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than a year (soon if you are over the age of 36), we recommend you book an appointment with a fertility specialist who can conduct some simple fertility tests.
