The andrologist will examine the male reproductive organs for potential anomalies. More specifically he will look at:
- Shape, volume and firmness of the testicles
- Ejaculatory ducts
- Varicose veins and hernias
These aspects can give valuable information about the potential causes of irregular sperm production. For instance, a thorough clinical examination will make it possible to detect an obstruction of the ejaculatory ducts.
Next step could be an additional check-up with an ultrasound.
