Can sperm quality increase the risk of miscarriage?

By Sergio Rogel Cayetano.
Last Update: 10/31/2018

Indeed, the presence of abnormalities in sperm DNA or any other inherent characteristics of the semen can increase the risk of miscarriage directly. Such abnormalities are more common in men with abnormal semen analysis results, although sometimes are present in males with normal semen analyses.

In patients with recurrent miscarriages, evaluating the sperm DNA fragmentation, percentage of apoptotic sperm cells, and performing a FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) analysis is recommendable.
