DNA sperm fragmentation

Sperm DNA fragmentation testing is a type of male fertility test which measures the amount of sperm with damaged DNA in a sample. All men have some amount of damage to their sperm DNA, but high percentages may indicate greater difficulty achieving pregnancy. Age, diet and lifestyle all contribute to DNA fragmentation within sperm which may affect your ability to conceive naturally and the outcome of fertility treatment. The presence of high levels of DNA fragmentation may guide your Fertility Specialists to advise lifestyle and diet changes to optimise your sperm sample, to improve your chances of conceiving.
