What does it look at:


This can be requested if there are infertility issues for you and your partner.
LH and FSH levels– LH controls the production of testosterone from your testes and FSH controls the production of your sperm. High LH and FSH levels are due to a primary testicular failure (failure of the testicles themselves). This may be caused by developmental abnormalities of the testes at birth or from damage later on (such as a mumps infection, alcoholism, anabolic steroid use, trauma, autoimmune disorders or a testicular tumour). Low levels of FSH suggest a brain pituitary or hypothalamic disorder.

Testosterone– a low testosterone level may be due to a brain hypothalamic or pituitary disease (there will be a reduced LH and FSH) or may be due to a primary testicular failure (as above). Increased testosterone levels may indicate a testicular tumour.

 Prolactin– Raised levels associated with a low testosterone level suggest a brain pituitary cause (such as a prolactinoma) for your infertility.

Fasting glucose – poorly controlled diabetes can cause infertility

TSH ft4 – thyroid levels can contribute to fertility issues

Sperm Sample - This may be done to check if you may be infertile If abnormal, you should repeat the test 1 month later. The fertility semen test checks for semen volume, sperm concentration, motility, progression and morphology. It also tests for fructose in the semen and anti-sperm antibodies.
