ZIVA is the first clinic in India to provide dedicated male infertility services. Our aim is to enhance reproductive health of males by providing them with the appropriate treatments that include complete evaluation and treatment by medical or surgical procedures, sperm freezing, sperm micro-fluidics, DNA fragmentation, etc.
In andrology services, ZIVA is providing sperm freezing also known as semen cryopreservation. It is highly effective in preserving the function and sperm motility. In Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), storage of sperms is usually done for future use.
Due to the downward trend in male infertility, researches are looking for a technique to select the most high-quality, motile sperm to increase the success rates of Assisted Reproductive Technique (ART). Sperm microfluidics is one of the potential techniques available now at ZIVA.
Sperm DNA Fragmentation
Almost 40-50% of infertility cases are associated with male infertility. A semen analysis measures the sperm concentration, motility, and morphology to determine your fertility. When the routine semen analysis shows normal sperm morphology, motility and concentration estimation of sperm DNA integrity may predict male infertility. Sperm DNA fragmentation is independent of the count, motility or morphology.
Complete Male Evaluation
In over a third of infertile couples, male infertility plays an important role. To identify the issue a basic semen analysis test is to be carried out. Semen analysis is the first test that is carried out for males for the evaluation of infertility at ZIVA clinic.
Treatment of Male Infertility
Fertility medicine is the first treatment option that will be offered to you by ZIVA if your reproductive system needs a little push. Many couples on fertility drugs get pregnant without opting for procedures like in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Magnetic Activated Cell Sorting of Sperms
Magnetic activated cell sorting of sperms (MACS) is a technique that allows the sperms with the best characteristics to be selected for assisted reproduction treatments. This unique technique provided by ZIVA eliminates the apoptotic spermatozoa- which die after fertilization, and the healthy ones are selected that increase the chances of pregnancy.
ZIVA provides an in-house facility for sample collection for diagnostic tests to understand the cause of your infertility.
Diagnostic tests for males involve:
A general physical examination is done and a few questions related to your medical history like any chronic illness, surgeries or injuries that could affect your fertility are asked by your fertility doctor.
