Test Tube Baby Centre
Test and Treatment for Men Patient:
At our Centre for Reproductive Medicine, we strive to determine the best solution for your fertility issues. Sometimes that solution is simple, requiring no high tech interventions. On other occasions, all of the technology at our disposal will be available to you. Not every patient will need IVF. Our task to evaluate your situation carefully and recommend appropriate treatment. We will start the process with you and have the resources to move therapy forward as required. The following is a list of preliminary tests and treatments.
Detailed Sperm Analysis:
Tests the sperm DNA for structural deficiencies that could impact the embryo.
Genetic (Inherited) Counselling:
With a trained geneticist, to discuss a potential genetic abnormality or prospects for a genetic abnormality.
The purification of a semen sample to prepare it for artificial insemination.
PESA: Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration:
Involves the extraction of sperm from the epididymal sac through a very small incision under local anesthetic.
TESA: Testicular Sperm Aspiration:
Involves the removal of sperm directly from the testicles by fine needle or biopsy.
TESE: Testicular Sperm Extraction (Biopsy):
Involves the removal of a small amount of testicular tissue.
Surgical Treatment Through Associated Physicians:
Varicocele repair, vasectomy repair.
Male Fertility Conditions :
Abnormal Sperm Production:
Problems with producing sperm. Male infertility has two common causes and names: Azoospermia, where no sperm cells are produced. Oligospermia, where fewer than normal sperm cells are produced.
In around one in three cases, male infertility is caused by blockages or the absence of tubes – usually due to an injury or a vasectomy.
In rare cases, a genetic disease such as cystic fibrosis or a chromosomal abnormality can cause male infertility. If you’ve helped conceive a baby in the past, but can’t now, you may still be producing normal, healthy sperm, but it may mean your sperm is not compatible with your current partner.
Male Fertility Predictor:
The Predictor test for sperm concentration is an easy way to assess the quality of sperm. The fertility test for sperm concentration Predictor is suitable for men who want to assess their levels of fertility.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The main cause of male fertility problems is the low quality of sperm, caused by low sperm count. This means that not as many sperm as it should have, which reduces the chances of sperm to fertilize an egg. Some lifestyle factors such as snuff, alcohol and heat (for example, the use of too tight underwear or hot baths) are the main factors driving low sperm count.
The Predictor fertility test for sperm concentration measures the amount of sperm in the semen. Determines whether the sperm count is above or below the level of 20 million sperm per milliliter with a precision of 97%.
