What is a semen analysis?
A semen analysis is one of the tests used to assess male fertility. It tests for the number of motile sperm in the ejaculate and is often used as the first step in understanding a man’s fertility potential.
What is a DNA fragmentation test?
A DNA fragmentation test is another test used to investigate male fertility. This test looks at the quality of the DNA of the sperm. Higher levels of fragmentation have been shown to be linked to male fertility problems. This test along side a semen analysis and some blood tests will give a strong understanding of male fertility.
