Andrology is the medical specialty that is responsible for the study, analysis and research of any factor related to sexual and reproductive male function. In the reproductive area, the main problems that are studied are the factors related with infertility.
By performing a semen analysis we can evaluate most pathologies related to male infertility and diagnose them.
Regarding sperm, there are parameters related to the quantity, morphology, mobility and functionality of the sperm. The study of volume and biochemistry of semen also directs us to the location of a possible lesion and the cause of the pathology. In the andrology evaluation a hormonal and genital tract assessment is done, as well as a complete physical examination. In those cases of azoospermia or severe male factor, we would perform a testicular biopsy or Micro Tese to find sperm.
