How is the consultation going
The appointment begins with a conversation – сollection of anamnesis. The andrologist will ask about symptoms, previous illnesses and treatment. All the results of previous examinations and treatment should be brought to the appointment. The doctor will also ask questions about the intimate life of a man. It is important to be prepared for such questions: answers will help the doctor to put the right diagnosis and prescribe treatment. After collecting the anamnesis, the andrologist conducts an examination, if necessary – with an ultrasound and a smear test.
According to the results, an andrologist can establish a diagnosis and prescribe a treatment, as well as send a man for additional tests and examinations.
