Mr Colin Davis Mr Colin Davis - Fertility Specialist

Fertility Assessment - Male Partner

Semen analysis after 2-3 days of abstinence. (Ideally needs to be analysed within 1 hour of production).  If the sample is azoospermic (no sperm in sample) the man will need to produce a second semen sample after 3 months with advised health changes (stop smoking, no drugs etc) and preferably no tight fitting underwear. Vitamin supplements such as vitamin C, zinc, selenium and magnesium may be used to help.

If the man is found to be azoospermic in second sample then we would advise a genetic screen and a cystic fibrosis screen to see whether the cause for azoospermia is due to an obstruction of sperm or a non production of sperm. Detailed discussions depending on the individual case will be held, including the possibility of surgical sperm retrieval if necessary. Sperm donation can also be offered if appropriate.
A virology screen including a test for HIV and Hepatitis B and C is offered to all couples seeking fertility treatment.
