At your male fertility assessment we’ll look at both your general and fertility health and take you through a few key tests.
We’ll focus on :
Studies show that if your body mass index (BMI) puts you in the underweight, overweight or obese categories, this could be affecting your fertility.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
