    1. Hi, my cousin went to this clinic a few years ago and they did an egg reserve test or something like that, I am 30 years old and I don’t think I will have children soon, I would like to know if there is any treatment for me, thanks.

    2. Hi, I have a problem with my sperm, I work at a company that exposes me to chemical substances and I have noticed that I don´t ejaculate as much quantity as I did before, I am afraid this has impacted my life, can this clinic help me?

      • Hello Carlo,

        If you are exposed to external harmful factors you can have complications in your semen quality. To ensure this is not an issue I recommend you get a seminogram done, in this test, doctors will measure different parameters of your semen and determine if it is considered within the norm. If this is not the case they will offer you a treatment to try and reverse whatever condition they encounter.

        I hope this helped.

        Best regards.
