Test Your Fertility Profile
A male fertility profile test helps in keeping a record, evaluating your fertility, and deciding on the treatment plan. Below is the list of tests that are included in the fertility profile.
Physical Examination: An examination of the testicles, epididymis, and penis is an initial step for assessing any abnormalities that may lead to fertility issues in males.
Hormonal Evaluation: Follicle stimulating hormone, Luteinising Hormone, Testosterone, and Prolactin are the important hormones that are evaluated. Healthy levels of these hormones are essential for the proper functioning of the male reproductive system.
In this assessment, we look at certain physical characteristics like volume or quantity of the ejaculate, pH, time taken to liquefy & levels of fructose. Microscopic examination helps us to measure the count or concentration of the sperm, motility (forward and sideways), morphological characteristics of the sperm (size and shape), sperm DNA fragmentation index & concentration of white blood cells. This analysis helps the assessment of the male fertility profile.
