Our trust values
University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust


The Andrology service provides basic semen analysis for men in the Poole Hospital area for post vasectomy semen analysis, male fertility investigations, DNA fragmentation and retrograde ejaculation assessments. The absence of sperm in a semen sample can confirm that a vasectomy procedure has been successful. Fertility assessment is used to look at sperm motility, morphology and concentration when investigating sub-fertility issues. DNA fragmentation is a consequence of oxidative stress on sperm production and can result in frequent miscarriages. Retrograde ejaculation is a potential cause of hypospermia and infertility
