A semen analysis looks at many aspects of the semen and sperm; assessing the density, morphology and motility of sperm.

Semen Culture
A Semen Culture test is carried out to assess for the presence of the microorganisms in the semen.

Sperm DNA fragmentation
A Sperm DNA Fragmentation test goes beyond the semen analysis and culture tests to explore the sperm at a molecular level to assess for DNA damage. We can perform the SpermComet test at the same time as your semen analysis test. We will explain your results to you in detail at your follow-up consultation.
