Hi Dr. Braverman,
I wrote to you regarding my positive serum anti-sperm antibody test with a titre of 1:100. Is this a high amount. You mentioned this is not a test that you order anymore. I am reading conflicting information on whether the presense of anti-sperm antibodies is relevant or not, some say it is, others day it is not. I also have heard that the fertilized embryo could also have the same antigens and that the mother is at at a higher risk for miscarrying. Please clarify.

Thank you,
Kristin

I do not beleive this testing is relevant and do not perform it. My concern is you may be missing the diagnosis that is relevant if you have not had complete immune testing.
