See Below: Delayed liquefaction (DL) > 1 hour can be factor in male infertility and often implies a problem with the prostate or seminal vesicles: infection, inflammation, genetic, etc. A Post-Coital test should be done next to see if DL is truly a problem. No consensus on optimal treatment. Options include hydration, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory meds, diuretic, Mucinex, (guaifenesin) and various homeopathic medicines.

If the morphology is part of the evaluation, the price will be a bit higher and it may take a day or so as the result is often double checked by other technologists before being reported.

Not likely: The most important thing is to not ejaculate for 48 hours prior to the collection. This ensures that counts are accurate.

How to understand my semen analysis. What is most important?

Have a dr. explain: It's all important, for different reasons. One way of simplifying a sa is to multiply the total count (concentration * volume) by the %motility * %morphology to get a total-motile-normal count. That said, you really can't understand a sa from a short explanation, ask the responsible doctor to explain it!

A Fertility clinic: The doctor ordering the semen analysis should be able to interpret it for you. Having said that, if you're trying to conceive a fertility clinic (reproductive endocrinology and infertility md) should be able to help if you're trying to conceive.
