Is semen analysis and advanced semen analysis the same?
By Álvaro Martínez Moro . Last Update: 06/12/2020

No. The motile sperm count test or advanced semen analysis report is a complementary test to a basis semen analysis that is carried out to confirm the parameters evaluated in the latter. Therefore, the advanced seminogram provides more clinical information.

Do devitrified embryos have a high survival rate?
By Álvaro Martínez Moro . Last Update: 04/22/2020

The survival rate of the devitrified embryos depends on both the viability of the embryo and tolerance to the process, as well as on compliance with the procedures established in the protocols. Therefore, in order to analyze the survival rate, we must understand what vitrification is.

Furthermore, it should be noted that the success of embryo devitrification does not lie in the survival rate of the embryos after the process. What is really important is to achieve results similar to those achieved when using fresh embryos.

What are the indicators of good egg quality?
By Álvaro Martínez Moro . Last Update: 04/16/2020

Egg quality is one of the most important and probably least known aspects of assisted reproduction. Finding a morphologically normal egg does not guarantee the subsequent achievement of pregnancy, but it does allow the prediction of a high percentage of the embryonic evolution, always taking into account other aspects such as age or ovarian reserve. Thus, we can distinguish three types of indicators, gynecological, morphological, and embryonic.

Can a period of abstinence influence sperm motility?
By Álvaro Martínez Moro . Last Update: 04/15/2020

The male factor has become one of the most relevant aspects of assisted reproduction recently. Different genetic diagnostic techniques have been used to analyze the role that the male is playing in achieving a pregnancy.

The period of abstinence is an aspect that has varied over the years, thinking at first that the greater the abstinence, the better the result of both the seminal diagnosis and the embryonic evolution and term pregnancy. Some studies show that a period of frequent ejaculations after a period of abstinence can improve sperm quality.

The period of abstinence differs according to the assisted reproduction unit attended and the standardization of the processes. The recommendations of the World Health Organization is to have sexual abstinence of between 2-7 days. If the abstinence is less than two days, we will find spermatozoa that possibly have less DNA fragmentation, but the count of the number of spermatozoa is lower than in normal conditions. If we have a high abstinence period, it is likely that we will find reduced sperm motility.

In conclusion, it is important to have an optimal period of abstinence according to the recommendations of the assisted reproduction center in order to maximize the chances of success in each case.
