Semen analysis is the most common male fertility test. Semen analysis analyzes how healthy a man’s sperm is. Semen is the fluid containing sperm that’s released during male ejaculation.
A semen analysis measures three major factors of sperm health:
A semen analysis is often recommended when couples are having problems getting pregnant. The test will help a doctor determine if a man is infertile. The analysis will also help determine if low sperm count or sperm dysfunction is the reason behind male infertility. With this, a treatment plan will be tailored for the couple.
At Thomson Fertility Centre, we have a private room for you to produce the sample or you can produce the sample at home in a sterile container provided by us or by your referring clinic and deliver it to us. Do note that you need to get the sample to the laboratory within one hour after ejaculation as the quality of the semen will be compromised thereafter.
