Typically, the first test for diagnosing male infertility is a semen analysis, which evaluates the volume of ejaculate, the concentration (or density) of sperm, and the sperm motility (movement) and morphology (shape).
At your initial fertility consultation, AFMC’s Male Infertility Specialists will review your medial hisotry and conduct a basic physical exam to determine if lifestyle, medications, or genetic factors may be impacting fertility.
FSH, LH, Testosterone, and E2
Possible blood tests performed may include follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), testosterone total, and estradio (E2). Testosterone level is quite important, as a low testosterone level may not only indicate low levels of sperm production, but may have significant implications for a man’s overall health.
