Fembryo Fertility Clinic Support and Counseling

Andrology is a specialised laboratory for assessing male reproductive health.

Male infertility refers to the inability of a man to contribute to a successful pregnancy in a fertile female partner. Male infertility may be caused by various factors such as low sperm count, poor sperm motility or abnormal sperm morphology, hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, or structural abnormalities of the reproductive system.

An andrology laboratory is a specialised laboratory that focuses on diagnosing and treating male infertility.

Clinicians request andrology testing to determine a male patient’s fertility status, usually when he and his partner have been struggling to conceive.

Fembryo offers specialised andrology (the study of male hormones and reproduction) services on-site with support from Urologists where indicated. All aspects of male investigations are performed in our clinic which includes:

Semen analysis

The laboratory can perform a semen analysis to evaluate the quantity, quality, and motility of the sperm. This can help to diagnose male infertility and determine the appropriate course of treatment.

Sperm processing

The laboratory can process the sperm to separate the motile and morphologically normal sperm from the non-motile or abnormal sperm. This can be useful in cases where the male partner has low sperm count or poor sperm motility.

Sperm cryopreservation

The laboratory can freeze and store the sperm for future use, such as in cases where the male partner is undergoing medical treatment that may affect his fertility or for couples undergoing IVF who want to preserve sperm for future use.

Hormonal evaluation

The laboratory can perform hormonal tests to evaluate hormone levels in the male partner, which may be useful in cases where hormonal imbalances are contributing to male infertility.

Hormone Treatment for Male Infertility

Hormonal stimulation is a treatment option for male infertility that involves using medications to stimulate the production of sperm in the testes. This treatment is often used in cases where the male partner has low sperm count, decreased sperm motility, or abnormal sperm morphology.

Genetic testing

The laboratory can perform genetic testing to identify genetic abnormalities that may be contributing to male infertility.

Post vasectomy testing

Post vasectomy testing is important to confirm that the procedure was successful and to provide peace of mind to the individual and their partner about their contraceptive status. It is recommended that individuals undergo post vasectomy testing to confirm sterility before relying on the procedure as a form of birth control.

Testicular biopsys

Testicular biopsy is a procedure that involves removing a small sample of tissue from the testicles for microscopic examination. This procedure is often used to diagnose the cause of male infertility, particularly in cases of azoospermia, which is the absence of sperm in the ejaculate.


Overall, the andrology laboratory at Fembryo Fertility and Gynaecology Clinic plays a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of male infertility in our patients, helping couples to overcome infertility and achieve their goal of having a child.
