What information does a semen analysis provide?

Dr. Kenan Omurtag explains how male factor infertility is actually more common than people think. About 50% of this doctor’s patients have a male factor causing their infertility. A semen analysis tests the volume, concentration, motility, and the morphology of the ejaculate. Also, an abnormal result of the semen analysis has been seen to be linked to up to a 2% chance of the male having testicular cancer. This can encourage the male to see an andrologist just to also check his health.

Dr. Kenan Omurtag is a fertility doctor at Washington University Infertility and Reproductive Medicine Center. He discusses the valuable information a semen analysis can provide.
