Andrology (men's medicine) is a field of men's health, especially genital diseases. It was established in Hungary in the early forties and was included in the field of urology. Due to growing demand, in 2004 it became an independent profession in Hungary. Andrology services are available at the LIFE Health Center.

Areas of andrology covered at LIFE include: male infertility, erectile and ejaculatory disorders, male menopause, male contraception and male infertility.

Relationships can be difficult if there is no pregnancy within a year for a noral couple with an active sex life without using contraceptive methods.

In Europe, 15% of relationships do not lead to pregnancy within a year. In 50% of childless relationships, the male is infertile.

The most common causes of male infertility are: unknown (30-40% of cases), absence of testes (acquired or congenital), genetic issues (numerical or structural differences in chromosomes), genital inflammatory diseases, tumors, systemic diseases (e.g., kidney failure), cancer treatments (chemotherapy, radiotherapy), sexual dysfunctions (ejaculation and erection), hormonal disorders and lifestyle factors (e.g., alcohol, nicotine, drugs).


Infertility Examinations

There are several steps to investigate men who are infertile. It begins with a questioning of the patient’s health background (previous illnesses, surgeries, treatments, lifestyle factors, environmental damage) and then a physical examination of the genitals. It is important to carry out a sperm examination (semen examination under a microscope), which is optimal if no ejaculation has taken place 3 to 5 days before the test. During semen testing, the quantity, texture, number of sperms, movement and structure of the semen will be examined. If necessary, additional tests will be performed, such as: hormonal, ultrasound, genetic, immunochemical and biochemical tests.

There are cases where the cause of infertility cannot be clarified and targeted, in which case some form of artificial insemination comes into play, depending on the quality of the sperm.
