Where sperm abnormalities cause infertility

Where sperm abnormalities cause infertilityWhen testing a couple for infertility, the man’s semen is generally tested first because tests for women are far more complicated, invasive and expensive. Studies show that 40 per cent of infertility is because of a medical problem with the man.

A fresh semen sample is obtained after sexual abstinence for about two to four days. The sample is captured into a clean, wide-mouthed bottle and if the sample spills or leaks out, the test is invalid and needs to be repeated. The semen sample must be kept at room (or body) temperature while it is being delivered directly to the laboratory. A semen analysis to determine fertility should be performed on a minimum of two samples at least seven days apart

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
