Semen Analysis

To do semen analysis, a fresh semen sample (no more than a half-hour old) is collected and then analyzed in at RAJ IVF CENTRE. The sample is collected at the centre by masturbation in a clean container provided at the site. The couple is asked to abstain from sex for two to three days. Instruction will be given not to use lubricated condoms for collection. There is a lot of interobserver variation in the count. We have at RAJ IVF centre the luxury of assessing your count using Makler’s Chamber ( Safi International, Israel), a device specially designed to get an accurate count. A correlation can be drawn between what you see in the lab and what matters for fertility.

Antisperm antibody

Testing for autoantibodies is necessary for a view of reduced fertility in couples having these anti-sperm antibodies. The binding of the antibodies reduces the motility of sperms, the interaction of sperm and egg is hindered with, and sperm may not be able to negotiate the cervical mucous. Detection is the simple-semen analysis that gives a bit of insight and a blood test will usually confirm the presence of antibodies. Steroid therapy may alleviate the problem. Some couples will benefit from IUI. IVF with the additional incorporation of ICSI will help the most couple to get rid of this problem.


The presence of varicose veins in the testicles leads to a raise in testicular temperature which intern reduces sperm production and maturation. The fertility potential of sperm goes down. This condition is thought to affect 15% of the general male population but about 35- 40% of patients present with male infertility. Diagnosis: Most of the time this is a clinical diagnosis and a semen analysis pattern gives enough clues to the presence of varicocele. USG and colour Doppler are not done routinely at our centre as the impact of subclinical variety on infertility is not convincing. Treatment is surgical. We routinely advocate cold sponging before surgery. A medical line of treatment with antioxidants is being tried.
