Male Fertility Test Male fertility test is a common way to see if an adult man can become a father of a baby or if he is fertile at all. Statistics says that every third couple among those who want to have a baby but have problems with conception suffers from the problems. The problem can be in semen quality or amount. A male fertility test is also a method widely used to check the effectiveness of such operations as vasectomy and reversal vasectomy.

Male Fertility Analysis

The male fertility analysis usually includes the following tests:

  • Measure the concentration of sperm in every milliliter (ml) of a man's ejaculate.
  • Amount of time needs for sperm to become liquid.
  • Motile density is one more parameter that should be taken into consideration when male infertility analysis is made. The test reveals the amount of sperm moving ahead normally.
  • The percentage of sperm with normal shape.
  • Determine the acidity level - its level of pH. Alkalimetric test is included too.
  • Check if there are white blood cells in a sperm sample.
  • Measure fructose level. Fructose is necessary as it fills the sperm with energy.


Before undergoing a male fertility test you should make some preparations. It means that you mustn't have activity during 2 - 5 days before the analysis. If you do not follow this requirement, the specific cells count won't be as high as possible, so the test cannot be considered reliable.

But the abstinence should not be too long. To be exact, it should not last for more than 2 weeks before the test, as such a long period makes the semen inactive. Alcohol consumption is forbidden for several days before the test, besides, you should inform the doctor about all medications you might be using.

To do your male fertility test doctors need your sample. You should fill a small sample cup. It can be done at home or at a clinic or a hospital where you are to have the test. In most cases samples are obtained through self stimulation. Another option is to use a special collection condom which is made without latex.
