Male fertility assessments

When you come to CARE for your male fertility assessment we’ll take you through a number of tests and checks.

By testing your semen, screening for infection, and examining your lifestyle, our fertility tests for men allow us to assess your individual situation and, if needed, decide on the best way to help. 

What does a male fertility assessment involve?

At your assessment we’ll look at both your general and fertility health and take you through a few key tests.

We’ll focus on:

  • BMI
    Studies show that if your body mass index (BMI) puts you in the underweight, overweight or obese categories, this could be affecting your fertility.

  • Blood pressure
    Your general health is closely linked to your fertility health, so we’ll be checking to make sure your blood pressure is within the recommended guidelines.

  • Medical history
    We'll take note of any existing medical conditions and explore any known problems that could be relevant. We might suggest further tests or make other recommendations based on our findings.

  • Semen testing
    Our scientists will examine your semen sample for sperm, measuring the number, shape and movement amongst other things. Depending on what we find, we might recommend some more tests. You can learn more about semen analysis here.

  • Chlamydia testing
    If you’re under 35, chlamydia is the most common cause of inflammation in the testicles and sperm-conducting tubes – and if left untreated it can have a serious impact on your sperm function and fertility.

  • Lifestyle
    Your lifestyle can make a big difference to your fertility. Your doctor or nurse might suggest changes to your exercise or diet to help you get in the best possible shape for your journey with CARE.
We'll take note of any existing medical conditions, look into your gynaecological history and explore any known problems that could be relevant.

You can book your assessment individually or with your partner as a couple, which reduces the overall cost. To find out more about our fertility assessments or to book an appointment, contact us or call your clinic.
