In brief: Semen Analysis info
The semen analysis is performed on a fresh specimen within 2 hours of collection.
Before testing, a period of 2-4 days of abstinence from ejaculation is recommended. The specimen is best collected by masturbation into a sterile container. This is most conveniently performed in the facility provided at the laboratory however collection at home is acceptable if it can be brought in within 1 hr.
