Diagnosing infertility in men due to genetic abnormalities is a complex undertaking due to the wide range of genes involved in the production and transport of healthy sperm. Infertility researchers also are constantly identifying additional genetic anomalies contributing to male infertility.
When examinations and the results of a man’s semen analysis indicate deficiencies in sperm count or Motility or Morphology then genetic screening may be performed to determine a specific genetic cause for male infertility. These diagnostic results help us determine the best way to address the issue through treatment, such as IVF with ICSI using the man’s sperm or using donor sperm to achieve pregnancy. The results may also indicate that the male or couple may benefit from genetic counseling.
In addition to genetic disorders causing male infertility, they can also cause a child to inherit serious medical and developmental complications. To check for male genetic defects in an embryo created through IVF, preimplantation genetic Screening will be performed. This Screening examines embryos for a range of genetic problems that may cause implantation failure, miscarriage or birth defects.
