How does male infertility screening work?

As male infertility is usually caused by underlying illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems and/or lifestyle choices, male infertility screening works to investigate these causes and thereby come up with an appropriate treatment plan.

General physical examination and medical history

  • Involves checking for any underlying illnesses, injuries, surgeries, inherited conditions or chronic health problems.
  • You might be required to share your sexual history.

Semen or Seminal Analysis

  • Involves taking samples of your semen for lab testing.
  • Preparation for this test will require you to abstain from sex or masturbation for at least 3 days. It will take around one week for you to receive your test results.

Scrotum Ultrasound

  • Depending on the results of your physical examination and/or semen analysis, you might be required to get a scrotum ultrasound.
  • A scrotum ultrasound assesses the testicles and their surrounding structures to check if there are other possible problems causing infertility.

Apart from the above, your doctor might require further testing including;

Transrectal ultrasound.

Hormone testing.

Post-ejaculation urinalysis.

Genetic testing.

Testicular biopsy.

Sperm function tests.
