Low or abnormal sperm counts can be caused by problems related to the reproductive organs. Ultrasound & hormone analyses are commonly used as a tool to screen for abnormalities as part of a routine workup in relation to infertility.

What Does The Assessment Involve?
As part of the assessment you will undergo ultrasound scans & blood tests. For the ultrasound scan you will be asked to uncover your scrotal area. A small amount of jelly will be placed over your scrotum. An ultrasound camera will then be placed on top and moved along. This will result in a picture appearing on the ultrasound monitor and patient TV which will be translated by a medical ultrasound practitioner. The examination itself usually lasts around 10-15 minutes and is pain free. At the end of the examination a brief explanation of the results may be offered. A formal ultrasound scan report with any recommendations will be sent to you which you can take to your regular healthcare professional.
This blood test is just like a standard blood test.
