A semen analysis is one of the first tests that Conceive Fertility Center uses to better understand the possible causes for infertility.

A semen analysis also provides information about any infection present in your reproductive system at the time of your testing.
During your visit to Conceive Fertility Center, you produce a semen sample for testing by masturbating into a sterile cup. In the event the sample isn’t sufficient for testing, the staff can provide you with a special condom to collect semen during sex.
The medical lab needs to test the sample within an hour of collecting the semen. Even if you do the collection at home, you’ll need to bring your sample to the office in enough time to complete testing.
To properly prepare for your semen analysis, it’s best if you avoid sex or ejaculation for 2-5 days before your test date to ensure a good quality sample.
If your semen analysis is the first step in the diagnostic process for infertility, Conceive Fertility Center uses the results to determine what your next steps will be.
Depending on the results of your analysis, your doctor may recommend additional testing procedures or can create a custom treatment plan to address the specific issues that affect the health or function of your semen and/or sperm.
