Best Andrologist in Delhi
We are a research clinic and have dealt and successfully treated
thousands of cases of male infertility over the last 26 years.
Male infertility is caused by some problem in the male, due to which he
is unable to deposit normal, healthy, sperms, in sufficient quantity in
the female reproductive tract to fertilize the eggs.
What is andrology?
Andrology is the science of the male reproductive system associated with reproduction only.
In recent times Andrology has grown in response to the need to help infertile couples along
with the development of laboratory technology and research facilities. The diagnostic tests
available to the clinician are
A semen analysis is a set of tests which tells is about the sperms and the functioning of accessory
glands. It is routinely done to help evaluate male fertility. Some of the parameters
routinely looked for male fertility are:
Sperm count= Sperm concentration x semen volume
Sperm count in million is directly related to pregnancy rate, and hence
an important indicator of male fertility. With the advent of ICSI, this parameter has
lost some of the significance in IVF procedures. WHO has lower limit of 20 million
sperms for normal fertility.
A lower sperm count is termed oligozoospermia Near complete absence of sperm is termed azoospermia
The WHO has a value of 50% and this must be measured within 60 minutes of collection.
But if the total count is less than twenty million but high motility the fertility is considered good.
A more specified measure is motility grade, where the motility of sperm are divided into four different grades:
Grade A or Motility IV: These sperms exhibit rapid straight line moment and are very strong and good for fertilization. These sperms are quite strong.
Grade B or Motility III: These sperms also move forward but move in a circular fashion. These sperms also can fertilize the eggs.
Grade C or Motility II: These sperms also move but do not show progressive movement. These sperms are not good for fertilization.
Grade D or Motility I: These sperms, do not move at all, and are not good for fertilization.
Morphology is a good predictor of success in fertilizing ability of oocytes during in vitro fertilization.
Up to 10% of all spermatozoa have observable defects and as such are disadvantaged in terms
of fertilizing an oocyte. Some of the sperm abnormalities are shown below.
