Test for Male Infertility

1. Semen Analysis

Semen analysis is done to know the level of sperm production and its functioning. It tells how much sperm you make, how well they move, and their shape.

2. Testicular Biopsy

 In this, a small piece of tissue is removed from each testicle and studied under a microscope. This helps find the cause of infertility and can collect sperm for use in assisted reproduction, such as IVF.

3. Transrectal ultrasound

In this procedure, a small, lubricated wand is inserted into your rectum. Doctors use it to check for blockages in the tubes that carry semen in the prostate.

4. Hormone testing

Sexual development and sperm production are closely linked to hormones produced by the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and testicles. Testosterone and other hormones are measured in a blood test.

5. Genetic tests

Genetic factors may be involved if your sperm concentration is extremely low. In such cases, blood tests can diagnose Y chromosome changes that cause male infertility.

6. Blood Test

Your health care provider may use blood tests to check hormone levels and rule out other major health problems.

7. Ultrasonography

Testicles can be examined with ultrasonography by examining the man's scrotum for obstructions. The test can also be used to check for varicocele and other reproductive system abnormalities.
