Male factor infertility: What is it?

What type of male factor infertility do you have?

ICI can help you conceive with male factor infertility, however it will not help treat any underlying condition you might have. Male factor infertility can present itself in a number of different ways. We've summarised this in the drop downs below.

Definition

A sperm count lower than 39 million per ejaculate. This is determined by a semen analysis and interpreted as oligospermia or oligozoospermia.

Is the Béa Treatment suitable?

The Béa Treatment is suitable if you have a low count as the cervical cap concentrates semen near the cervix.

Definition

Total motility (movement of sperm) lower than 42% in the ejaculate, as determined by a semen analysis. This is determined by a semen analysis and interpreted as astenospermia or astenozoospermia.

Is the Béa Treatment suitable?

The Béa Treatment is suitable if you have low motility as the cervical cap concentrates semen near the cervix.

Definition

Morphology (normal forms) lower than 4%, as determined by a semen analysis. This is determined by a semen analysis and interpreted as teratospermia or teratozoospermia.

Is the Béa Treatment suitable?

The Béa Treatment is suitable if you have low morphology as the cervical cap concentrates semen near the cervix.

Definition

A combination of multiple factors (for example low sperm count and low sperm motility).

Is the Béa Treatment suitable?

The Béa Treatment might be suitable if you have a combination of the factors - but we can't say for certain what your chances of pregnancy might be.

It's important to note - if no sperm or no moving sperm are found in the ejaculate - the Béa Treatment would not be suitable.
