Many men experience low sperm quality, sometimes due to an unhealthy lifestyle. Such sperm may not be able to reach the egg or its ability to penetrate and fertilise the egg might be compromised.
Male fertility depends on sperm quality, count and motility.
Other factors that can compromise male fertility are:
- An autoimmune response
- Hormonal production disorders
- Blockage of the spermatic cord
- Problems with ejaculation
In some cases, the cause cannot be determined but it is mostly possible to discover them by male examination.
A spermogram is the primary method of establishing the presence and cause of male infertility.
The exam requires a sperm sample taken after three days of sexual abstinence. The sample is checked for sperm count, motility and morphology. Based on the test results, our doctors will recommend the most suitable method of fertility treatment.
