Male investigations

In fertility treatment the male is ignored and not assessed by any male investigations, only being asked to provide a semen sample for IVF treatment without being assessed.

Assessment of the male partner by a specialist is extremely important because up to 7% of men have fertility problems and a male factor is present in 50% of couples seeking fertility treatment.

Male partner assessment by a specialist will allow:

  • Treatment of some conditions to allow the couple to conceive naturally
  • Diagnose diseases that in addition to causing infertility would have a serious negative impact on the male partner’s health such as hormonal problems and testis cancer
  • Diagnose genetic disorders that in addition to causing infertility may cause birth defects in the offspring
  • Improve success rate of IVF treatment
  • Downgrade fertility treatment for example by improving semen parameters the couple may have artificial insemination instead of IVF

We offer a variety of  baseline investigations like semen analysis or more advanced investigations like genetic tests and ultrasound scan of the testicles to identify the underlying cause of  male infertility.

Your consultant will discuss the suggested investigations with you.
