A cheap sperm test may sound good, but is it actually worth the money? In many areas of life you do get what you pay for and if you buy cheap you often pay twice and sperm testing and male fertility investigation is really no different.
We help a huge number of men that have been tested elsewhere but are none the wiser and generally confused about how all the numbers relate to them and their actual likelihood of becoming a father.
Understanding your fertility as a man is not all about just getting a seemingly cheap sperm test done. The reason for that is that a sperm test in inexperienced hands does not always tell you anything more about your fertility and why you and your partner are not getting pregnant. A man’s fertility is rarely just about a collection of numbers. Numbers alone do not guide you in how to proceed with your fertility journey.
It is so important that once you have had the relevant tests, a male fertility specialist, at our clinic this is a consultant urologist specialising in male fertility, looks at the results and works with you to come up with the right treatment plan for your specific needs. Sperm testing is not like having a blood test it is not carried out by a machine, good quality sperm testing is carried out by an experienced person who understands what they are looking for and how with a little patient background information what they see under the microscope relates to the patients own experience.
There are so many different causes of male infertility, so there should never be a ‘one size fits all’ approach to your testing or your treatment. You may require a number of different tests before your specialist team can find the correct diagnosis and offer you the relevant treatment.
This is where Fertility Solutions is different; we ensure that all our patients know exactly what their results mean and what treatment options they have available because as standard we have our consultant urologist thoroughly analyse your test results and then we discuss them with you to help you formulate a plan.
When it comes to your health it is important that you receive the best quality care and avoid going with a test just because the price is alluring. Unfortunately, a cheap sperm test may not give you the answers you need.
At Fertility Solutions, we know that advice is the key and should be a standard not an expensive extra. For us the discussion of the results is always included as this is how we can truly help you. As healthcare practitioners this should always be at the heart of any service.
