Male Fertility Diagnosis and Testing
Semen Analysis

This is an important test in cases of subfertility. We advise you to have 3 days of abstinence before producing the sample. Please do not use any spermicidal jelly or condoms for production. Please write your name, date and time of production clearly on the container. Please bring the sample to us within an hour of production by keeping it at close to the body temperature. The result of the test will be discussed with you in 1-2 days. Three important things we analyze in the semen sample are count, motility and morphology. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to
ask our Pathologist.


Some studies have suggested that advanced male age (usually over age 50) may lead to increased infertility and increased rates of miscarriage. The data in the literature on this is mixed. Some studies showing paternal age to have an effect and some not finding it to be very predictive. If there is an effect of paternal age, it may be a small effect.
