Fertility spermogram

Why perform a fertility spermogram?

The fertility spermogram consists of assessing several parameters of the semen. Some of the parameters evaluated when this type of spermogram is performed provide clear diagnostic elements, whereas others are markers for early diagnosis of fertility problems. Some parameters do both.

Most fertility spermograms offered commercially or in hospital laboratories include assessment of the volume, pH and viscosity of the ejaculate. They also include a visual assessment of the number of spermatozoa and a visual evaluation of the percentage of mobility.

These measures obtained by performing a fertility spermogram allow specialists to identify potential causes for the delayed fertility observed. As an example, a reduced ejaculate volume can indicate a partial obstruction of the genital tract which can impair conception. A fertility spermogram that reveals an abnormal pH might indicate that one of the accessory sex glands is malfunctioning.

Why have my fertility spermogram performed by Nasci?

When fertility-related concerns arise, it is important to perform the most thorough fertility spermogram possible. This helps make the best decision and maximizes the efficiency of the medically assisted procreation process if this option is taken. In practice, these treatments are demanding, particularly for women, and must be undertaken with the best knowledge possible of the condition of the spermatozoa.

Nasci analyses all the parameters of the standard fertility spermogram for you using state-of-the-art technologies for the best precision possible. Moreover, the fertility spermogram at Nasci includes the measurement of parameters recently linked to male fertility by research. Nasci has a particular expertise for properly interpreting the results, their strengths and their limits.

The price for this complete analysis from Nasci is 315$. A $100 fee is applicable for cancellations that occur less than 4 days before the appointment.
