Does poor semen quality influence miscarriages?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez.
Last Update: 05/06/2021

Studies seem to link poor semen quality, in terms of oxidative stress, sperm DNA fragmentation and sperm aneuploidy rate, with repeat miscarriage.

It is important to mention that these semen parameters are not studied in the basic semen analysis, but it is necessary to perform other complementary tests such as FISH of spermatozoa or the study of sperm DNA fragmentation.
