When a couple has issues when trying to get pregnant, on average there is a 50-50 chance that it is due to male not contributing to the pregnancy. If you and your partner have tried to conceive for over a year with no success, we recommend both partners undergo infertility testing. The first step in male infertility testing is a semen analysis, a simple non-invasive test along with a physical which can give guidance on your infertility.

Semen Analysis Testing

The first step in understanding if a male is infertile is through a semen sample. Through the test, we evaluate the sperm count and quality in four main factors:

  • Volume of semen produced (volume)
  • Total Sperm count (in general, a count of 20 million is considered normal)
  • Motility of the sperm (on average, 50% of the sperm should be moving)
  • Morphology, or shape if the sperm (40-50% of the sperm should have a healthy shape and appearance)

Through this test, we can also determine if you have an infection in your reproductive that can enable you from being fertile. 

What if My Semen Results Are Not Normal?

If your test results are not normal, Dr. Saadat would recommend undergoing a hormone level test. For males, two important hormones for reproduction are testosterone (T) and follicle-stimulation hormone (FSH). If you have too much or too little of these hormones, it could cause your interest and ability to have sex along with issues with sperm production. 

What if My Semen Test Results are Normal?

If the male’s test comes back normal, we can eliminate the possibility of male infertility issues and focus testing and treatment on the female. Further male factor evaluation is not likely.
