Does Covid affect male fertiltiy: Get a test


How does COVID affect male fertility?
Institut Marquès has launched a study to reveal the long-term impact of COVID-19 on the male reproductive function.

They are offering all men over 18 years of age the opportunity to perform a free semen analysis and thus know the quality of their sperm.

Test centres are in Spain (Barcelona), Italy (Rome) and Ireland (Clane) so as to obtain a sufficiently large sample to determine whether COVID-19 affects the quality of semen.

Toxic chemicals and Covid-19 are “breaking our balls”

They have chosen an evocative and original slogan for the campaign that encourages young people to participate in the study.

Those interested must be over 18 years old and only need to register through the Internet and fill out an online form. Participation is completely confidential and free.

Once the sample has been analysed, a specialist will provide the participant with a full report and help assess the results.
Thanks to the studies carried out so far by Institut Marquès, many men have discovered that they could have problems when it comes to becoming parents in the future.

In 6 out of 10 couples that resort to assisted reproduction treatments to become parents, the semen presents alterations of a greater or lesser degree.

For this reason, at Institut Marquès they have an Andrology Unit specialised in male infertility.

Toxic chemicals, the main cause of poor semen quality... until today
A spokesman said: “Institut Marquès was a pioneer demonstrating to the scientific community that the causes classically attributed to worsening semen quality (stress, tight pants, alcohol, etc.) are a myth. As confirmed with its studies carried out in Spain, toxic chemicals are to be placed as the origin of the problem. With the new study launched this October, it will also be determined the impact of COVID-19 on the male reproductive function.”

Join their study to find out the quality of your sperm.
