Sperm DNA testing, Fertility treatment and Miscarriage

Investigation of the Role of Sperm Quality in Fertility Diagnosis, Fertility Treatment and Miscarriage

The purpose of this study is to examine how the quality of your sperm affects your fertility diagnosis or fertility treatment success. Most research to date has focused on the woman and very little is known about the impact that sperm have on fertilisation, embryo quality, pregnancy or miscarriage.

If you would like to know more about this study or for more information about any of our research programmes please contact the research team on 0151 702 4346 or email
