Male Fertility Review

Male Fertility Review

A complete diagnosis and treatment options for male infertility concerns.

What is a male fertility review?

Male factor infertility accounts for 40-50% of infertility cases. That's why assessing your fertility health is important, whether you are currently trying to conceive or plan to in the future.

A male fertility review is a series of tests assessing a man's overall reproductive health. The review typically includes a semen analysis, testicular ultrasound, hormone blood tests, and health checks such as BMI and blood pressure. The combination of these tests will determine a male's fertility potential and detect any underlying medical conditions that may impact reproductive health.

A fertility review is available for men and patients assigned male at birth (so long as its prior to hormone replacement therapy) without a GP referral. Just call our team, make an appointment or book online.

Who is suitable for a male fertility review?

We offer male fertility reviews to single patients and those in a heterosexual couple without a GP referral. You may wish to have a fertility review if:

  • You are in heterosexual relationship and you and your partner are experiencing difficulty conceiving
  • You have a medical condition or undergoing treatment (such as chemotherapy).
  • You have a sexual dysfunction, such as erectile dysfunction or ejaculatory disorder
  • You are concerned that your lifestyle choices may be contributing to male infertility

What does it involve?


Semen Analysis

We will perform a thorough semen analysis. This process measures parameters, such as concentration, motility and morphology, to indicate how healthy your sperm is.

Before your semen analysis test you should abstain from ejaculation for 3 to 5 days.


Testicular Ultrasound

A testicular ultrasound is a diagnostic test that obtains images of the testicles and the surrounding tissues in the scrotum. It is a painless and non-invasive procedure to diagnose possible abnormalities in the testicles that may be impacting your fertility.


Hormone Blood Tests

Hormone blood testing can indicate whether male patients have certain conditions that could prevent natural conception. 

Hormones such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and testosterone are imperative for male reproductive health. FSH stimulates sperm production, and LH is responsible for testosterone production.

These are fasting blood tests so no food is to be consumed from midnight on the day of the bloods. 


Standard Health Checks

We will carry out some basic health checks, which can impact male fertility, such as BMI and blood pressure. Both low and high BMI levels can negatively affect male reproductive health by affecting hormone levels and testosterone production, which is crucial for sperm production and maturation.

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, can also impact male fertility, contributing to conditions relating to the production, quality and function of sperm.

How will I receive my results?

When your results are ready, you will see one of our male reproductive health consultants for a 30-minute fertility consultation. They will go through your results, what the next steps will be to help you achieve pregnancy naturally or with our help if an issue is found, they will also answer any questions you may have.

It may be that simple lifestyle adjustments can help to improve your reproductive health, all of which will be discussed at your consultation.
