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.
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:
Through this test, we can also determine if you have an infection in your reproductive that can enable you from being fertile.
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.
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.
If you and your partner are looking to start your infertility journey, testing the male (and female) are critical steps to create an action plan to get pregnant. Our dedicated team will be happy to provide you with more information over the phone and start the consultation process.
