Going for donor egg treatment?
Has your man been checked out?
Some problems with female infertility can be overcome by using donor eggs, but undetected sperm problems could still led to failure for you both.
While a conventional semen analysis test will reveal basic problems – like not enough sperm – the quality of the sperm can only be assessed by looking at its DNA.
Unlike women, who have all their eggs in place when they are born, men make new batches of sperm every three months. So if the DNA test shows the man’s sperm is damaged, simple lifestyle changes can improve his sperm quality in a short time.
Having a sperm DNA test before you start your treatment with donor eggs will give you more choices.
