Planned parenthood, despite restricted fertility
Almost every sixth marriage in Germany remains involuntarily childless. The cause lies with the man in 30% of cases. Where you and your wife would like to have children, we can help you to come closer to fulfilling your wish by conducting diagnostic examinations of your ejaculate (spermiogram) in order to determine your fertility.
The spermiogram allows us to identify whether all levels are within a normal range. Ejaculate quality outside the normal range is among the most frequent cause of male infertility. The andrological laboratory at the Karlsruhe Planned Parenthood Clinic works under clean room conditions as defined in the latest WHO regulation.
Examinations include determination of volume, pH value, ejaculate viscosity, concentration, mobility, vitality and shape of the sperm.
Optional examinations, such as the test for sperm antibodies (MAR test) or to determine α-glucosidase activity in the ejaculate, can provide additional indications for causes in cases of possible restricted fertility.
What should I expect?
We know the questions going through your mind on the way here. This is why it is so important for us to remove all the obstructions for you. Every sixth marriage is involuntarily childless. You are not alone with your questions.
