Comprehensive fertility diagnosis allows a couple to find out their reproductive probabilities in the most complete way and is very useful, for example, when deciding which assisted reproduction treatment will be the most appropriate in case of needing this specialized help.

It should be remembered that fertility problems are due to both male and female factors. According to the clinical data available to date, they distribute the origin of infertility among men, women or the combination of both partners in similar proportions of 32%.



MSOME test for the analysis of male fertility

Although any patient can undergo the MSOME test, it is especially indicated in those patients with an altered semengram or for those who have had failed cycles of assisted reproduction.

The MSOME test is a breakthrough in the diagnosis of male infertility, since it allows to analyze the morphology of sperm with great precision thanks to powerful microscopes specifically designed for this technique, and allows to make an accurate diagnosis of the situation of male gametes.

Through the MSOME test, sperm can be analyzed very precisely, even identifying those with potentially damaged genetic material, which makes it possible to obtain a very precise diagnosis of the situation, unlike the semiogram that can present variability in the results in function of the chosen moment to make the analysis.


Measure female fertility: the ovarian reserve

In the case of women it is essential to diagnose the ovarian reserve through two simple tests that will allow us to know their reproductive probabilities: the analysis of the antral follicles (RFA) and the antimüllerian hormone (AMH), two complementary markers that confirm the quantity and oocyte quality.

The antral follicle count is performed very easily by means of a simple vaginal gynecological ultrasound, which is usually included in routine check-ups.. If in the menstrual period of the woman, approximately 5 to 10 follicles are visualized sonographically in each ovary, it can be considered that there is an optimal reserve.

As additional evidence, in addition, antimülleriana hormone can be analyzed, that provides information not only of the quantity of ovarian follicles, but also of the ovocitaria quality.
