  • Sperm DNA Fragmentation Index-The Sperm DNA fragmentation Index Test is done to identify the genetic material of the sperm or if the DNA has any damage or not. This test is usually suggested for male infertility patients with any abnormal semen analysis, advanced age, past failure in ART cycles, etc. 
  • Post-Ejaculation Urinalysis-retrograde ejaculation makes the semen flow backward to the bladder instead of allowing it to discharge through the male reproductive organ. PEU helps in determining this condition by identifying the presence of semen in the urine. 
  • Analyzing medical history- usually, doctors emphasize knowing whether the patient had any injuries, surgeries, or chronic health conditions to arrive at any conclusion. 
  • Physical examination- the doctor may check for any kind of signs of problems or damage in the genitals. This procedure is carried out with the consent of the patient. 
  • Hormonal Testing- The Hypothalamus and testicles release many hormones in the body. Through this test, the male patient’s hormone levels are tested which are crucial for healthy sperm production, fertility, and sexual development. 
  • Scrotal Ultrasound- in this test the structure of the testicles and the nearby organs are checked and then the problem is identified. The problems could be varicella, blockages, and many others.
