Maximizing the Success of IVF with Comprehensive Sperm Testing

Undergoing In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) can be a nerve-wracking and emotional process for prospective parents. However, with the right preparations and medical tests, the success rate of IVF can be significantly increased. One of the most important steps in the IVF process is to conduct a thorough analysis of the sperm that will be used in the procedure. In this article, we will discuss the three key tests that should be performed before donating sperm: spermogram, karyotype, and sperm DNA fragmentation.


A spermogram, also known as a semen analysis, is the first and most fundamental test that should be performed before sperm donation. This test measures the quantity and quality of sperm in a man's semen. The following parameters are typically evaluated in a spermogram:

  1. Sperm concentration: The number of sperm in a milliliter of semen.

  2. Sperm motility: The ability of sperm to move towards an egg.

  3. Sperm morphology: The shape and size of sperm.

  4. Volume of semen: The amount of semen produced during ejaculation.

Spermogram results can be used to diagnose male infertility and determine the cause of infertility, if any. If the results are normal, it can give couples a higher chance of success in IVF. However, if the spermogram results are abnormal, further tests may be required to determine the underlying cause and potential treatments.


A karyotype test is a laboratory analysis that determines the number and structure of a person's chromosomes. This test is important in the IVF process because it can detect any chromosomal abnormalities that could impact the success of the procedure. Chromosomal abnormalities can cause infertility and increase the risk of miscarriage or birth defects.

In a karyotype test, a small sample of blood is taken from the man and analyzed in a laboratory. The results of the karyotype test can be used to determine if the man has any genetic disorders or conditions that could impact the success of the IVF procedure. If any abnormalities are detected, the couple can discuss the options available to them with their doctor.

Sperm DNA Fragmentation

Sperm DNA fragmentation is a test that measures the amount of damaged DNA in a man's sperm. This test is important in the IVF process because sperm with high levels of DNA fragmentation may have difficulty fertilizing an egg, leading to a lower chance of success in the procedure.

In a sperm DNA fragmentation test, a sample of semen is taken and analyzed in a laboratory. The results of the test are used to determine the level of sperm DNA fragmentation and the potential impact on the success of the IVF procedure. If the results indicate a high level of sperm DNA fragmentation, the couple may need to consider alternative treatments or techniques, such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), to increase the chance of success in IVF.

In conclusion, conducting thorough analysis of sperm before donating it in IVF procedure can greatly increase the chance of success. Spermogram, karyotype, and sperm DNA fragmentation tests are key in determining the quality and health of sperm and ensuring the best possible outcome for the couple.

She is super knowledgeable on business, laws and how things work in surrogacy in general, and specifically on Ukrainian surrogacy.

Delivering Dreams goes above and beyond what other surrogacy agencies offer. After speaking with Susan, I see how they anticipate every part of the process, down to details that I had never even considered. I didn’t know what I didn’t know!

Under Ukrainian law, surrogacy is a legal affordable option for traditionally married couples to have children using their own embryos, or with either an egg or sperm donor. There must be a medical reason you can’t carry a child. You are also able to participate if you have had 4 unsuccessful IVF attempts.
