At Examen we believe in empowering men to take control of their own fertility. This section provides men with the information they need to make informed decisions about lifestyle changes or treatments to improve their fertility.
DNA is the most important part of your sperm. It contains the instructions that will make your baby look and act like you. Sperm DNA can be damaged during sperm production, storage and transport. This damage is is known as DNA fragmentation. Even healthy sperm have some DNA fragmentation, but it’s the amount of fragmentation that matters.
Infertility is a widespread problem affecting about 15% of couples. Male infertility accounts for around 40% of all cases. Some cases of male infertility can be treated by medical or surgical intervention, whilst for others, assisted reproduction techniques may be the best pathway to having a baby.
Making healthy sperm is complicated and things can go wrong along the way. If you are thinking about starting a family, have been trying for a while, or have experienced miscarriage, it makes sense to check out the health of your sperm.
