Genetic tests for the comprehensive examination of male infertility

Centre for Reproductive Genetics of iVF Riga Clinic offers a new service for patients – an opportunity to make a comprehensive check of men's health, which will help to answer the question why the long-awaited pregnancy does not occur in his female partner. Received results will help to develop the further examination and treatment plan to achieve a successful result.

Indications for a comprehensive examination for men:

If a man wants to know if he could become a father:

  • In cases of azoospermia or oligozoospermia (absence or very low concentration of spermatozoa in the ejaculate)
  • In his female partner does not occur pregnancy for a year or more of regular sexual life without the use of any contraceptive
  • There are repeated pregnancy losses on the early term (two or more spontaneous abortions) in his female partner anamnesis
  • Failed implantation in the female partner (negative result after the previous cycle of IVF treatment)

The comprehensive examination includes:

  • Molecular testing for determination of AZF region microdeletions of Y-chromosome
  • Determination of the karyotype (number of chromosomes)
  • Determination of the most common CFTR gene mutations that cause cystic fibrosis (mucoviscidosis)
  • Determination of hereditary hemochromatosis - genetically caused disorder, which is characterized by excessive accumulation of iron in the body’s tissues and organs, including testicular tissues. Excessive iron accumulation can cause a gradual cessation of spermatogenesis.

The results can be obtained after 4 weeks.
