Semen Analysis after your Vasectomy is important to be performed as it signs-off on the vasectomy being effective for contraceptive purposes. The first appointments for post-vasectomy samples should usually be 12 weeks and 25 ejaculations after surgery. Both numbers are important to satisfy the current international guidelines. We ask you to ejaculate and collect the semen at home in the supplied universal bottle and deliver the samples at body temperature to the laboratory within one hour, samples over one hour old will not be accepted. For optimum sample collection there should be a period of 48 hours without sexual activity before the specimen is produced.
If you would like to discuss this test, please contact the laboratory.
