The single most important indicator when considering a man’s ability and likelihood of fathering a child, is the production of good numbers of motile healthy sperm. Our semen analysis service is inexpensive and establishes your potential fertility
Anyone trying for a baby, especially if…
✓ You have been trying for more than 6 months
✓ The female partner is over 30 years old (female age has a huge effect on fertility)
We examine your
✓ sperm count (lots of sperm are needed for conception)
✓ sperm motility (Your sperm need to be swimming and swimming fast)
✓ sperm morphology (The shape is important for fertilisation)
We also perform tests not routinely offered by the NHS but necessary to establish your fertility potential including:
✓ Mar testing (to look for antibodies that can cause your sperm to stick together)
✓ White blood cells (infection will affect your fertility)
✓ PH (checks for obstruction and infection)
✓ Analysis conducted to WHO
Your test will only be done by an experienced embryologist this is unique to our service and important because sperm problems can be subtle but very significant and an embryologist routinely processes sperm for IVF procedures so is best placed to assess problems.
Following your test, we offer a full explanation of your results as standard considering your own personal circumstances and on the same day. Your test will have been reviewed first by our consultant urologist who will offer you expert male fertility advice. We will also construct a pathway of referral or treatment depending on the results.
