In at least 30 percent of all cases, male-factor infertility is the reason a couple cannot conceive a child. Men must increase their awareness of male-factor infertilty. A correct diagnostic evaluation of a man's semen quantity and quality is a necessary component in every couple’s basic fertility examination. Male-factor treatment begins with diagnosing the root cause of a man's infertility. There are a number of things that can cause male-factor infertility.
- Low sperm count
- Abnormal sperm
- Poor sperm motility
Male-Factor Infertility Treatment
Diagnosing the root cause of a man's infertility is the premiss to creating a successful treatment plan. Diagnosis begins with a simple semen analysis. After a man provides a semen sample, doctors will be able to learn a great deal about both the quantity and quality of his sperm. Even if no sperm are present in the sample it does not mean that there are no sperm being produced. Medical issues exist that can prevent sperm from making it to the ejaculate, even if it is being made in sufficient quantities. Further diagnostic tests can identify this situation.
Any and all negative influence of male-factor infertility must be negated to ensure successful embryo development. HRSS technology is helping embryologists see, identify, and choose only high quality sperm cells for fertilization of an egg in vitro. With HRSS technology, embryologists are able to better visualize sperm for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) administration. Couples who have multiple failed IVF cycles are primary benefactors of HRSS.
New Hope Fertility Center NYC is one of only a few fertility treatment providers to offer HRSS technology. Look: HRSS optimizes the sperm selection process for improving the success of ICSI.
At 6000 x magnification – using Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) microscopy – it is possible for embryologists to see finer morphological details of sperm. Using conventional 500 x magnification, these details would go unnoticed.
The best part? By viewing sperm cells at 6000 x magnification, lab technicians can identify quality sperm cells that are optimum for fertilization of a healthy egg.
Once optimum sperm cells have been identified, a two-pronged process takes place.
Once the quality sperm cells are selected and separated using HRSS, they are injected into the egg for fertilization. Each egg receives a single sperm injection.
- Reduces chances of a negative impact a sperm can have on a perfectly healthy egg
- Removes any negative influence that male-factor infertility may have on successful embryo development
- Increase the chances of a viable pregnancy
HRSS Identifies Optimum Sperm
A sperm cell’s normal appearance makes it more likely to be comprised of normal chromosomes and DNA structure. Here’s the deal: Optimum sperm morphology correlates directly with successful egg fertilization and embryo implantation. Morphology is the most important criteria when judging the quality of a sperm cell.
- Sperm motility – ability of the cell to swim
- Sperm morphology – overall assessment of the cell’s shape, size, and physical appearance
HRSS optimizes the selection of quality sperm. Quality sperm is crucial for improving ICSI. The best part? The process of ICSI improved overall and - consequently – IVF pregnancy success rates are higher.
- Higher positive pregnancy rates
- More successful embryo implantations
- Increased full-term pregnancies
