Male infertility genetic testing
A growing number of conditions producing infertility in men are now being identified as genetic in nature. This means currently that most of these conditions cannot be corrected and in some cases the defect can be transmitted to offspring. Most of these conditions exist in men with sperm concentration lower that 5 million per cc. Men with counts in this range need genetic screening to diagnosis their condition, provide prognostic information for treatment and genetic counselling for implications on offspring.
