Semen Analysis

What Is Semen Analysis?

Semen analysis is the most common and important males fertility test. Infertility is not just a woman’s issue. Men actually contribute 50% to the causes due to problems with the sperm. The most common test is the Semen Analysis which is used to determine whether a man has an infertility problem by measuring the number and quality of sperms.

Low sperm count means the fluid (semen) that a man ejaculates during an orgasm contains less sperm. A man’s sperm count is considered lower than normal if it has fewer than 15 million sperm per millilitre of semen. When a man is suffering from a sperm count, he will then has a lesser chance that his sperm can fertilise an egg.

At Sincere Healthcare Group, we have a private room for you to produce the sample or you can also produce the sample at home in a sterile container provided by us and deliver it to our laboratory within one hour after ejaculation as the quality of the semen will be compromised thereafter. A semen analysis through Sincere Andrology Laboratory is conducted onsite by our andrologists for an optimum analysis.

A semen analysis measures three major factors of sperm health:

  • Sperm count (the number of sperms)
  • Motility (the ability of a sperm to move)
  • Morphology (size and shape of the sperms)

Collection of Semen Sample?

  • Wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Refrain from using lubricant, saliva, or any product that may contain spermicidal agents.
  • Ejaculate directly into the sterile sample cup.
  • Try to capture the first part of the ejaculate and do not attempt to collect any spilled semen.
  • Cap the container as soon as you have finished.
