Antisperm antibodies are one immune factor which could be involved in infertility. Antisperm antibodies can really impair the function of healthy sperm. These antibodies attach to your sperm, reducing motility and making it more difficult for sperm to pass through cervical mucus. Antisperm antibodies can also force sperm to clump together, making it difficult for your sperm to fertilize an egg.

MENS HEALTH sexologists conduct the following tests to ensure a healthy sperm production in men:
Asthenospermia or spontaneous sperm agglutination is observed during routine Semen Examination.
2. Post -Coital Test:
The post-coital test can detect the presence of anti-sperm antibodies in a woman's cervical mucus making it easier to treat and restore normal sperm attachment.
3. Low Immunity:
Immune factor covers 10 to 15 % of male infertility as a causative factor, these include the patients in which all seminal parameters are normal but the PCT Post Coital test are poor and there is defective sperm motility also semen shows high level of sperm agglutination.
4. AB Anti-sperm Antibody Test:
This blood test checks the nature of actual antibodies are present on the sperm itself (over tail, overhead) rather than circulating in blood. The presence of both IgG and IgA anti-sperm antibodies are measured on the sperm surface. IgA antibodies are considered of greater clinical significance than IgG.

Antisperm Antibody AB test:
It's very important to find out that whether actual antibodies are present on the sperm itself (over tail, overhead) rather than circulating in blood. The presence of both IgG and IgA anti-sperm antibodies are measured on the sperm surface. The results are given in terms of the number of motile sperm affected by anti-sperm antibodies surface antibodies may affect both movement of the sperm and the ability of the sperm to bind to the oocyte results are clinically significant and positive if more than 50% of sperm are affected by either class of antibody. IgA antibodies are considered of greater clinical significance than IgG.
ANTISPERM AND INFERTILITY:
