Fertility tests for men  



I was wondering what test a man would undergo to test his fertility? Is it always a sperm test? Or are there other possible tests that are more important in the early stages?

I think in the early stages semen analysis is the most useful test as if it shows no problems, that is quite reassuring

Thanks for your answer @geordie. Can I be tested at my doctor or is it not a normal test? 😩

I have also been thinking about being tested, since me and my wife have not yet been able to get pregnant. I'm just really worried about what to do if the test shows that I'm the problem, I mean, what then ? 😥

Your GP can arrange it & it’s important as you need to know where you stand. If there’s a problem at least you will know & your doctor can send you to see a specialist?

Hi everyone! I'm part of a start-up focused on male fertility. Our first step will be to test toxicity of substances and make at-home tests to see if anyone has reproductive toxicants in their system. I'd appreciate a lot if you could help me answer and/or distribute this survey: removed link

Hopefully, we'll be able to help many of us! 


Thanks a lot.
