Causes of infertility in men
How we uncover the cause of infertility
After the initial interview, we recommend tests which confirm or rule out the cause of infertility on your side. The problems with getting pregnant are, in most cases today due to a combination of negative factors on the part of women and men.
Any medical examination is preceded by a medical history. We ask about more serious illnesses, allergies, operations, long-term drug use, injuries or pain in the testicles. We focus on everything that could affect fertility. Based on your medical history, we recommend the most appropriate examinations.
A semen analysis is a basic examination on the part of a man. The cause of infertility can be reduced sperm counts such as low ejaculate volume, low sperm count, lack of sperm motility or erroneous sperm morphology.
Semen analysis values vary greatly over time, meaning we cannot make definitive conclusions from one examination and must repeat the semen analysis after some time.
SEMEN CULTURE EXAMINATION
A culture examination of semen investigates the presence of infectious diseases of the male genitals. The exclusion of the infection or its treatment are important. Infectious disease has a negative effect on fertility, reduces sperm motility, prevents penetration into the egg, or provokes antibody production.
The purpose of an andrological examination is to rule out the disease of the epididymis, testicles or prostate as the main cause of infertility.
Genetic tests are a breakthrough in the treatment of infertility. They are an integral part of the examination of each fertility disorder. These tests help us determine the cause of infertility and have a positive effect on further treatment.
Hormonal disorder is only rarely the cause of male infertility, affecting less than 3 % of men. If a hormonal examination would make sense in your case, we will detect the hormone levels from the blood.
