The DNA sperm fragmentation investigation is a separate test to the semen analysis and can help us to identify if there is DNA damage present within the sperm which may be a contributing cause to infertility. The cost of a semen analysis (usually €120) is included in the DNA Sperm Fragmentation test price.
Anyone who is presenting with unexplained infertility may be a candidate for DNA Sperm Fragmentation testing. However, we do not routinely recommend it for everybody. If you have a history of pregnancy loss or underlying medical conditions, it may be of value.
Through identifying potential issues within your sperm’s DNA, we can more accurately provide you and your partner a treatment plan that will give you the best chance of success. We will guide you through this process if they feel you may benefit from this particular investigation.
