The initial diagnostic study of male infertility is the semen analysis. The analysis is generally performed on a specimen that has been produced by means of masturbation into a sterile specimen container. At First IVF and Day Surgery Centre, we have our Semen Collection room that is designed with your safety, privacy and comfort on our mind.
A sperm test analysis will provide information on:
- Basic measurements of the volume (in milliliters)
- The percentage of the sperm which are moving (motility) and the quality of the movement.
- The quality of the movement of the sperm, described as the “progression”.
- The shape of the sperm (morphology).
A Semen Analysis can help clarify if a male reproductive problem is causing infertility and what fertility treatment would be best suited.
