This is the simplest examination of male fertility, which is carried out under a microscope. Thanks to this examination, the number, mobility and shape of the sperm itself are monitored. The properties of the ejaculate such as viscosity, colour, rate of liquefaction or Ph are also detected.
The course of the examination:
We recommend 2- 3 days of sexual abstinence before collection, to obtain the most optimal result. The collection takes place in a designated room in our clinic. In exceptional cases it is possible to collect the sample at your home, it is necessary to deliver it to the clinic within one hour after the collection. At our clinic you will be presented with a sterile container in which the ejaculate will be stored (at room temperature) for the duration of the transfer to the clinic. However, for optimal results, we recommend that the collection is performed at our clinic.
For the results of the spermogram, you can come in the day after the collection. Your results will be handed to you at the reception desk upon presentation of your ID.
Diagnosis of male infertility is standardized by the World Health Organization (WHO 2010), where a spermogram (SPG) with diagnosis of sperm morphology is classified as the basic examination in a man. This is the very primary examination of the couple and there is no point in carrying out any other examinations especially in a woman unless the result of the partner's SPG is known. We are the only one in Slovakia to have introduced a standardized semen analysis, which we perform in accordance with WHO (2010) using a PC analyzer "MedeaLab CASA".
Advantages of the system:
- Objectification of SPG assessment (sperm concentration, motility and morphology)
- SPG result generation in seconds
- recording and storing each SPG result for possible re-analysis of the sample or comparison with the next test
