What Is Antisperm Antibodies (ASA)?Dr Halil ibrahim Tekin
An anti-sperm antibody test looks for special proteins (antibodies) that fights against a mans sperm in blood, vaginal fluids and semen. The antibodies can damage or kill sperm. If a high number of sperm antibodies come into contact with a mans sperm, it may be hard for the sperm to fertilize an egg. A man can make sperm antibodies when his sperm come into contact with his immune system. This can happen when the testicles are injured or after surgeries (such as biopsy or vasectomy) or after a prostate gland infection. A woman can have an allergic reaction to her partners semen and make sperm antibodies.
