Andrology is the science of examining male infertility (the cause of infertility is on the male side), examining and treating erectile dysfunction, hormonal changes in an aging man, and male contraception. In addition, we also investigate and treat inflammatory disease of the prostate.
It is common practice in Hungary to start investigating the female side in the case of childless couples and when there is no difference, the male side is only investigated then. This view is fundamentally flawed, as 40% of women, but also 40% of men, can be held responsible for having a childless relationship. Thus, andrologists try to introduce the approach in Hungarian practice that, in parallel with the examination of women, the examination of men should begin. Many erectile dysfunctions can be treated, so it is worth contacting a specialist.

Examinations, most common surgeries:
- sperm extraction from testis (TESE)
- artificial infertility (vasectomy)
- varicocele (testicular varicose veins)
- hydrocele (testicular hernia)
- circumcision (foreskin removal)
- frenulotomy (cutting through the short foreskin)
- microscopic surgeries (mTESE, microscopic varicocelectomies)
The course of andrological examination:
After arriving at the clinic, the patient’s medical history is first mapped. We map past illnesses, possible surgeries, medications taken, possible allergies, environmental damage. This is followed by a physical examination (examination of the genitals). The sperm image is then evaluated. If there is a difference in the sperm image, hormone tests are requested. Based on the differences in the sperm image and hormones, genetic and immunological tests may be requested. In case of discrepancies in the findings, ultrasound examination of the testicles is performed. In case of suspicion of seminal obstruction, the biochemical markers can be checked for the confirmation of semen inflammation and for the examination of the organs involved in sperm production.
