The initial step in the evaluation of semen quality is the Basic Semen Analysis (Spermiogram) which includes the assessment of the conventional quantitative and qualitative characteristics:
- Semen Volume
- Sperm Concentration – Total Sperm Count
- Sperm Motility
- Sperm Morphology
- Sperm Vitality
Sperm Function Tests may provide important diagnostic information which is not always correlated with the conventional semen profile.
The combination of appropriately selected tests outlines more comprehensively the fertilizing potential of the examined sample.
