Infertility Questions

Infertility Tests for Men

Causes of InfertilityIf you and your spouse are having difficulty trying to have a child, there could be several different causes. Our infertility clinic in Allen can perform a variety of tests to determine the cause of the problem and come up with a suitable treatment plan. Here are just a few of the tests that most men will commonly undergo:

Scrotal Ultrasound

This test involves the use of high-frequency sound waves that produce images inside the body. This will help Dr. Victor Beshay to determine if there are any obstructions or other potential problems in the testicles or surrounding areas.

Transrectal Ultrasound

If you undergo this test, your doctor will insert a small, lubricated wand in your rectum. Not only will this allow the doctor to look for blockages in the tubes that transport semen (the seminal vesicles and ejaculatory ducts), it will also allow to check your prostate as well.

Male InfertilityHormone Testing

There are several parts of the body that play an important part in sperm production as well as sexual development, including the testicles, pituitary gland and hypothalamus. Any sort of abnormalities or hormone imbalance could potentially lead to a problem with infertility. By testing your blood, a doctor will be able to tell whether or not you have the proper level of testosterone and other hormones.

Post-Ejaculation Urinalysis

Sometimes, sperm in the urine can be an indication that sperm is traveling backward into the bladder rather than through the penis during ejaculation.

Genetic Testing

A low concentration of sperm, as well as other sperm abnormalities, can often be attributed to genetic causes. Blood tests can also reveal, for example, whether subtle changes to the Y chromosome have occurred. They can also help in diagnosis of different types of inherited or congenital syndromes.
