Semen Analysis

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This four-page handout helps men prepare for a semen analysis, which is a test to check a man’s semen and sperm. It explains that a doctor may order a semen analysis to check for problems that may cause male infertility, to check for the absence of sperm after a vasectomy, and to check for the presence of sperm after a reverse vasectomy. The document provides basic instructions to help the patient prepare for the test and collect the sample, and includes a place where the healthcare provider can write down the address for where the container will need to be taken.
