Definition of Anti-sperm Antibody Test
An anti-sperm antibody test ascertains the presence of proteins that fight against the individual’s sperm. These are present in the blood, vaginal fluids or semen. Using a sample of the semen from the male partner, a fertility expert will add a binding agent that binds only to the affected sperm.
The antibodies can damage or kill sperm. And a large number of sperm antibodies come into contact with a man’s sperm, and it may be hard for the sperm to fertilize an egg. This condition is known as immunologic infertility.
