Male Investigation

Semen Analysis

A semen analysis looks at many aspects of the semen and sperm; assessing the density, morphology and motility of sperm.


Semen Culture

A Semen Culture test is carried out to assess for the presence of the microorganisms in the semen.


Sperm DNA fragmentation

A Sperm DNA Fragmentation test goes beyond the semen analysis and culture tests to explore the sperm at a molecular level to assess for DNA damage. We can perform the SpermComet test at the same time as your semen analysis test. We will explain your results to you in detail at your follow-up consultation.

Hormonal Profile

A blood test measures the level of testosterone and other hormones.

Basic- This is a male screening package is a series of blood tests which form part of a comprehensive fertility workup. This package comprises of the following tests

  • FSH Level
  • LH
  • Prolactin
  • Testosterone
  • SHBG

Retrograde Ejaculation

Sperm in urine can indicate that semen is traveling backwards into the bladder instead of out of the penis during ejaculation. This test is undertaken to determine whether there is any physical damage or obstruction.

  • A urine analysis is taken shortly after climax to inspect for the presence of motile sperm

Genetic Tests

Karyotype

  • Men with a sperm count less than 10 million/ml may have a problem with their chromosomes so require a Karyotype test to make sure that their Karyotype is 46 XY.
  • Identifying such problems is important as some problems may have a negative impact on the health of the affected individual and the offspring after successful IVF.
  • Some of the karyotype problems necessitate Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) during the IVF cycle in order to avoid having a baby with congenital defects.

Y chromosome analysis

Men with a sperm count less than 5 million/ml may also have a problem with the AZF genes on the Y chromosome. This test may influence the decision on whether or not to perform surgical sperm retrieval.


Cystic Fibrosis Screen (CFTR Gene Tests)

Mutations of the cystic fibrosis gene are involved in male infertility. Some causes of male infertility such as absence of the vas deferens are considered to be mild incomplete forms of cystic fibrosis disease.

It is of utmost importance to also screen the female partner of the affected male for CFTR gene mutations. If the female partner is found to be a carrier of a CFTR gene mutation, Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is necessary to avoid having a child with the full blown picture of cystic fibrosis disease.
