Male Fertility Tests

Genetic centre iVF Riga offers a new service for patients – an opportunity to make a comprehensive check of men's health, which will help to answer the question why the long-awaited pregnancy does not occur in his female partner. Received results will help to develop the further examination and treatment plan to achieve a successful result.
