SEMEN ANALYSIS

Analysis includes the determination of standard parameters such as the sperm concentration, motility and progressive motility. General sperm morphology is routinely assessed. In addition, semen volume, degree of sperm aggulutination, leucocyte (WBC) and liquification time will also be noted.

Punctilious analysis of stained sperm can identify many minor deviations from otherwise ‘perfect’ sperm. Such assessment is valuable for IVF. The “Strict” sperm morphology estimation will be performed upon request.

Specialized tests are performed when standard semen analysis results are acceptable either the partner is found to be “reproductively normal” or if the couple is experiencing unexplained infertility.
