In the IVF lab, we initially assess a man's fertility by measuring the numbers of sperm produced, assessing their ability to move effectively as well as judging their shape and size. Unlike in society, we like uniformity in sperm quality rather than individuality. Here's where being average is the goal.
Infertility - The male partner suffers from low sperm counts or sperm is unable to penetrate or survive in the cervical mucus. If the man's sperm count is less or the mobility of the sperm is not according to the mark as needed for the reproduction process, then also you can take up the option of IVF.
Sperm / Semen Analysis
A semen analysis for accurate measurement of sperm motility and count. Sperm morphology is assessed employing "Kruger criteria." Semen should also be cultured for Ureaplasma, Urealyticum, Chlamydia, and Gonococcus and for aerobic/anaerobic
Male Fertility Physical Exam
A proper physical exam is an important part of a complete male fertility evaluation. In most cases, the physical exam is performed by an Urologist. The physician may examine the penis, scrotum, testicles, and prostate for medical problems such as a varicose vein in the scrotum, irregular testicle size, or enlarged/dysfunctional prostate.
In a relatively small number of cases of male infertility, the failure to produce an adequate quality of sperm relates to reduced secretion by the pituitary gland of those hormones necessary to stimulate sperm production.
