Male factor infertility

At Viera Fertility Center, Dr. Chamoun works with the whole family to ensure that everyone’s comfort is maximized throughout the process.

A male partner can expect to provide a semen sample in early stages of the fertility testing process. Ideally, semen should be collected by masturbation, after 2 to 3 days of abstinence, into a clean container provided by the facility and examined within an hour after collection. A comprehensive analysis includes an evaluation of sperm count, overall motility and proportion of normal sperm (morphology) present in the sample. The objective is to get a sense of the semen quality and determine the need for additional testing including hormonal or genetic testing or referral to a specialist in male reproduction/urologist.
