Hello,

Thanks for your query.

Infection must be controlled before IVF, as infection is known to reduces success rate of IVF ( TESE).

He can take multivitamin along with a course of broad spectrum antibiotics. Perhaps culture and sensitivity test of semen sample to find the right antibiotic for treating infection is entailed.

I suggest IVF only after control of infection.

thank you for your quick reply... how long should we wait after the infection to do IVF?

Hello
     
Minimum time period for sperm formation or generation is three months. So ideally one should wait for 3 months.

But I suggest a gap of alteast one month to my patients who look for early conception. You may discuss this with your infertility specialist.

Hope I have answered your query,

“Wish you Good Health”
