Best DFI Treatment In India

Related By Fertility

Infertility is defined clinically as a lack of pregnancy following 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse. Infertility affects 10-15% of the world's population, and it has been increasing in recent years. Approximately 50% of instances of infertility involve male factors, with 20% cases of pure "male factor" infertility and 30% cases of combination female and male factor infertility . Currently, conventional semen analysis is used to evaluate and diagnose male infertility, including the volume, concentration, vitality, and morphology of the semen. However, around 15% of men with normal sperm analysis are infertile. This implies that sperm analysis alone can only give limited information for assessing male fertility and does not provide a complete picture.represent the sperm's ability to fertilize Traditional sperm analysis has failed to fulfill the demands of reproductive clinical practice with the emergence of assisted reproductive technology (ART). Better clinical markers are needed to detect the origin of male infertility and its links to reproductive outcomes. The sperm DNA fragmentation index (DFI) shows the integrity and damage to the DNA, the genetic material of the sperm, allowing possible sperm damage to be detected. It is regarded as an important indication in determining the quality of sperm.

Package Details


Describe DFI.

DFI (DNA Fragmentation Index) is a measure of degree of DNA damage in a sample, typically sperm cells.
It is an essential tool for identifying possible sperm damage and assessing the quality of semen.

Male reproductive potential and embryo development have been found to be impacted by the presence of fragmented DNA in sperm. It may also contribute to unsuccessful IVF attempts and repeated miscarriages.

Men with advanced age, varicocele and external genital irritation, bad lifestyle choices including smoking and drinking, and exposure to radiation and pollution are more likely to have high DFI levels.


Benefits & Losses

  • This process enables us to determine whether or not the male partner's semen sample may be used. We advise using a sperm donor if the degree of fragmentation is greater.
  • The health of the male partner is unaffected by the risks associated with sperm DNA fragmentation. The method does appear to have certain limits, though.



This treatment aids in the diagnosis of male infertility, particularly when:

  • Couples with a history of poor or halted embryonic development;
  • Unexplained infertility;
  • Several failed ART cycles;
  • Recurrent miscarriages;
  • Older males;
  • Varicocele;
  • Abnormal semen analysis;
  • And exposure to dangerous chemicals such as smoke, alcohol, radiation, etc.

The DNA fragmentation index of sperm (DFI) is measured using a simple procedure, similar to a standard semen assessment.

Semen acquisition:
  • A sample of the male's sperm is taken for analysis.

Sperm analysis:
  • To assess the degree of sperm DNA fragmentation, our specialists perform a number of diagnostic procedures.
