Abnormal Semen Analysis in Boca Raton, Aventura & Palm Beach

Testing & Diagnosis of Semen to Determine Infertility

When you and your partner are trying to conceive, our team is here to help you. We assist couples with both preventive measures and in fertility analysis and treatments. As part of each couple’s thorough fertility screening, our fertility specialist, Dr. Mark Denker, will conduct a complete evaluation, including testing and diagnosis of each partner. For men, this involves performing a semen analysis to look for any of the common causes of male infertility.

Once we have the results, you will meet with Dr. Denker to discuss your fertility and your treatment options. All procedures are very personal, and we ensure you that we go over the options that fit best with your situation. If there are any questions about abnormalities in the semen sample, we may recommend re-testing.

Moving Beyond Abnormal Semen Analysis Results

Getting abnormal semen analysis results is undoubtedly frustrating. We understand how important it is to you to feel that your fertility issues can be resolved. The good news is, most problems in male infertility can be addressed or corrected.

The following are a few of the most common factors that contribute to abnormal results in semen analysis:

  • Low sperm count: A normal semen sample contains a minimum of 20 million sperm per milliliter (mL) per ejaculation. In cases in which the sperm count is low, one of the most effective treatment options is a procedure called intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI.
  • Semen motility: The motility of sperm refers to how well it can move. This is especially important because a successful sperm must swim through cervical mucus, across the uterus, and into the fallopian tubes to fertilize the egg. We might recommend intrauterine insemination, or IUI if you have issues with motility.
  • Sperm morphology: Morphology is another way of saying how the sperm looks – its shape and size. When more than 30% of sperm within a sample has an abnormal shape, there’s an issue with how they are maturing in the testicles and fertility can be affected. If you have abnormal semen analysis due to morphology, one option Dr. Denker offers patients is intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
  • Hormone Therapy:Testosterone supplementation in men is a very common cause of male factor infertility. Testoterone acts on the control centers in the brain to decrease sperm production.
