The clinical examination of penis and testicles can put us on the trail of abnormalities that are responsible for an abnormal sperm cell test. For example, varicose veins in the testicles can cause these to warm up, thereby reducing sperm production. Pain and swellings can point to inflammation or a blockage of the epididymides.
In some men the seminal tube is absent. This can explain why no sperm is found in their ejaculate.
Practical info : you will be given a separate appointment for this. This consultation is generally combined with the discussion of the man’s blood and sperm cell results.
