Don’t wait a year…

There are many reasons to get your fertility checked promptly. A semen analysis is a really good, one test indication, of a man’s fertility potential. It is quick, non invasive and when interpreted correctly, I would argue it is the most cost effective fertility test for couples that there is. If found to be abnormal, contrary to popular belief, there is a lot that can be done to reverse any problem. It is important to address any issues quickly, as sperm are continuously produced and quite sensitive to their environment.

THE PLACE OF SPERM DNA FRAGMENTATION TESTING IN CURRENT DAY FERTILITY MANAGEMENT

Abstract

In this debate article, I am going to set out the case that sperm DNA fragmentation testing is essential in current day fertility management because:

  • Our current semen analysis testing is unfit for purpose
  • We need to take a fresh look at the ‘evidence’ against sperm DNA testing
  • Sperm DNA damage testing has strong associations with every fertility check point
  • Sperm DNA damage testing has strong associations with miscarriage
  • Sperm DNA testing can explain ‘unexplained’ infertility
  • There are reasons why sperm with poor DNA are successful in ICSI
  • There are no non-invasive sperm function tests that provide the same information.
  • We need to take a fresh look at the ‘evidence’ against sperm DNA testing

We have no reason to wait. There are benefits for clinics and couples alike.
