Screening for Infertility in MenEn Español (Spanish Version)
The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are usually administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.
At this time, there are no screening tests or screening guidelines for male infertility.
However, your doctor may request a semen analysis, which is considered part of the diagnostic workup for infertility.
