What is genetic infertility?

Known genetic factors are responsible for 15-30% of male infertility.  However, lack of knowledge and education have left many couples and their healthcare providers unsuspecting of these genetic contributions to infertility.

The Evolve Male FertilityReady Screen detects genetic causes of male infertility.

Why Evolve Fertility Genetic Screening?

Evolve Fertility Genetic Screens benefit males and females with a suspected genetic cause of infertility.  Screening may help increase your IVF success by identifying if there’s a genetic factor that could lead to IVF failures.

Genetic screening should be considered if you have:
Had failure to become pregnant after attempting for at least 6 months
A personal or family history of infertility

​It Is Important for All Men to Get Screened

Genetics underlies our physiology, therefore a complete understanding of infertility cannot be made until we evaluate the possible genetic factors behind it.  The Evolve Male FertilityReady Screen is a genetic screen intended for any male with concerns regarding infertility, diagnosed azoospermia or oligospermia, and/or a family history of male infertility.

Many professional medical societies including the American Urological Association (AUA) and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recommend males with infertility have genetic screening.

What do my results mean to me?

There are many options available if a result reveals you have a genetic cause for infertility.

Results allow you to make informed reproductive healthcare decisions.

Results can guide your medical management with appropriate sperm retrieval technologies (e.g. ICSI/MTESE/PESA) or through carrier screening for a female partner to determine the risk for having a child with a genetic disorder.  If results reveal a complete lack of spermatogenesis, a couple may consider alternative family planning options such as sperm donation or adoption.

Results are quick, accurate, and reliable to help improve your fertility success rate.
