Andrology Assessment


Diseases of the male reproductive system are not identified as often as they should be for several reasons. One reason may be that doctors do not routinely ask for symptoms of male reproductive system diseases when taking a history – either because they believe (especially with older men) that a sexual history is unimportant or asking such intimate questions may offend the patient.

The good news is that Andrology assessment is now available to any men who have reproductive and sexual health issues. CheQKmate prides itself on being able to offer a comprehensive evaluation of men's reproductive and sexual health and hence assist them with their most un-talked about problems. When it comes to Infertility, the seamless evaluation of both the male and the female partner at CheQKmate provides the best scientific and evidence based solution to the Infertile couples.
