Basic male fertility testing is a spermogram (semen analysis). For a semen analysis it is necessary to bring or hand in the ejaculate directly at our Centre. Semen analysis is carried out according to the 2010 WHO Guidelines.
Before a semen analysis sexual abstinence is advised during the previous 3 days.
A male comprehensive examination includes also an examination of man’s hormonal profile, test for sexually transmitted infections and assessment of erectile ability.
