At FIVMadrid, we do semen quality studies on medical advice or at the patient’s request. A semen analysis is a study of semen from ejaculate. The sample is obtained by masturbation at the clinic. It is also possible to bring a sample from home, provided that you live less than 20 minutes from the clinic. This study ends with a diagnosis, and if applicable, assisted reproductive treatments for which the semen is valid. The result may be affected by various factors, including: fever, tobacco, drugs, medications, etc. Therefore, it is important for this information to be included in the medical history to ensure an accurate interpretation. If necessary, we also do tests for DNA fragmentation in sperm (TUNEL) and aneuploidies in semen (FISH).
It is important to know that in terms of the causes of reproductive dysfunction, the origin is male in 40% of cases.
