How is male infertility diagnosed?
Our fertility specialists at Babies & Us, a trusted IVF centre in Mumbai, will perform a physical examination and ask about your medical history. They may ask you to undergo various tests to find out the root cause of your infertility. They include:
Semen analysis is done to check the sperm for abnormalities. It evaluates the sperm count, shape, and motility. This test is repeated several times to get an accurate result.
Hormone testing: As hormones are necessary for sperm production and sexual development, their levels are measured through blood tests
Scrotal ultrasound: It is done to detect issues in the testicles and surrounding structures, such as varicocele.
Transrectal ultrasound: It checks the tubes that carry semen for blockages.
Genetic testing: This test is done to rule out inherited or congenital syndromes.
Post-ejaculation urinalysis: It is done to see whether the sperm is traveling out of the penis during ejaculation or backward in the bladder (retrograde ejaculation).
