Often in couples who have problems with the conception of a child, it is women who blame themselves for infertility. In fact, in 40% of couples, infertility is associated with a male factor. Male infertility – a reduction of sperm fertilizing capacity. Causes of infertility in men are diverse: abnormalities of testicles, infectious and inflammatory diseases, chromosomal abnormalities, toxic effect of environmental pollution, exposure to high temperatures, trauma.
Examination of the pair begins with the man, because the diagnosis of male infertility is easier, cheaper and requires fewer medical interventions. To understand if there are problems with spermatozoa, a man gives sperm analysis. Normal indications spermogramma – 20 million spermatozoa in one milliliter of sperm, half of them – actively mobile. 5 million of them should be without pathologies. Only then sperm is considered qualitative. But if the parameters of the spermogram don’t correspond to the norm, on the basis of a complex examination of the pair, the method of assisted reproductive technologies is individually selected.
ISIDA clinic uses the most modern methods of treatment for male infertility: artificial intrauterine insemination (IUI), IVF, ICSI and TESE methods.
IUI is prescribed for infertility, both female and male. In this case, spermatozoa are injected directly into the uterine cavity. Fertilization occurs naturally in the body of a woman.
IVF is also used for male infertility, when there are problems with male fertility (at least 5 million active-mobile spermatozoa) or after three unsuccessful attempts at insemination.
ICSI and TESE make it possible to achieve fertilization of the ovum and pregnancy, even in the most severe forms of male infertility. ICSI is indicated in cases when the level of pathological spermatozoa is increased in sperm and they have low mobility. Sperm injection is carried out in the embryological laboratory: with the help of micromanipulators, the selected sperm of good quality is introduced into the cytoplasm of a mature egg. And the TESE method is used when there is very little or no spermatozoa in the sperm. With this method of treatment, a testicular biopsy is performed and spermatozoa are released directly from the resulting tissue. Thus, the couple has a chance to conceive their baby even in the most difficult male factor infertility.
The use of modern assisted reproductive technologies and invaluable experience of ISIDA clinic specialists allowed many families to cope with the problem of infertility and experience the joy of parenting!
