The term infertility is used to define couples who are unable to have children, without taking into account the correct definition. Marital infertility is when a couple of reproductive age has not reached pregnancy after 12 months or more of sexual intercourse that is well distributed throughout the menstrual cycle and without the use of contraceptive methods.


Infertility is a highly frequent disease in the world population, as it affects approximately 15% of couples of reproductive age, and 52% of cases are related to male factors. Furthermore, 20% of infertility cases occur due to combinations of male and female factors. Therefore, the complete health assessment of the couple is important to determine the best course of action in the treatment of this disease.


When a couple fits the diagnosis of marital infertility, they should seek the help of certain specialists: A gynecologist and a urologist/andrologist: this is the basic binomial to be sought by a couple who have failed to produce a child. Brazil already has urologists and andrologists specialized in male infertility, accredited by the Brazilian Society of Urology, and which can be found in all regions of the country.


Only when the couple is evaluated by experts, diagnosed and treated, assisted reproduction should be considered as an option for fertilization

For the diagnosis of male infertility, highly specialized tests developed exclusively to understand the sperm physiology and the fertile potential of men can be ordered by doctors and performed in the Androscience Laboratory. know more


These tests are more sensitive to determine sperm quality. They can, for example, identify early changes in the sperm of an individual with varicocele, whose sperm count would be normal. Other tests, such as oxygen free radicals or sperm DNA fragmentation, are also indicated in specific suspicious situations, such as repeated abortion.


This assessment may lead to clinical and surgical treatments, monitoring the evolution during treatment, and finally, contribute to the choice of the most adequate assisted reproduction method for the couple's profile.


Observing this routine, the diagnosis of male infertility is well resolved in 87% of cases.


It is important to inform that the Androscience Laboratory is a laboratory specialized in Andrology, that is, it offers all the subsidies for the diagnosis of male infertility and support for the preparation of semen for assisted reproduction techniques.
