Male Infertility

In this clinic, patients should first be visited by an andrologist (specialist in male infertility). Then, if necessary, they will be referred to paraclinic for diagnostic purposes.

Main activities of paraclinic include:

1-      Hormone testing including measuring Prolactin, Testosterone, LH, FSH hormones,…

2-      Specialized testing including:

Semen analysis according to the WHO latest manual (WHO 2010)

Further testing of sperm function including Anti-Sperm Antibody (ASA) test, assessment of sperm chromatin and DNA tests, such as Aniline Blue (AB), Toluidine Blue (TB), Chromomycin A3 (CMA3)

After initial diagnosis, one of the following methods may be applied in some patients for sperm extraction and use of it in assisted reproductive technologies (ART):

1-      TESE: is the process of extracting sperm from the testicle in patients with azoospermia

2-      PESA: is a technique used to determine sperm counts in the event of a possible blockage of the vas deferens

3-      Electro Ejaculation: is a procedure used to obtain semen samples in patients with spinal cord injury

4-      Vibrator: for providing a semen sample in patients with erectile dysfunction

5-      Micro TESE: is the operation for Sperm collection from the testicle for use in microinjection in patients with azoospermia

6-      Sperm Freezing: is a method for men to preserve their sperm and store it in a bank for future use. Many medical treatments, including several cancer therapies, can damage sperm quality, which is why you may choose to freeze your sperm before receiving the medical treatment.
