Enhanced Male Fertility Assessment

Some men opt to have an Enhanced Fertility MOT, which is a more detailed male fertility test. It includes some additional tests of sperm health and function. And it gives us a far greater insight into your reproductive health.

  • It can be very helpful if previous or home sperm tests have been normal and your infertility remains ‘unexplained’. Or when these tests have been abnormal but you have not been given an explanation as to why.
  • Sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) is known to be higher in infertile men. Testing for Sperm DNA fragmentation measures the quality of sperm as a DNA package carrier, and it therefore is more significant than the parameters analysed in standard semen analyses.
  • The Enhanced Fertility MOT also includes a short telephone consultation with your doctor. They’ll discuss your results with you, and may recommend some lifestyle changes or treatments.
