If you’ve undergone a vasectomy, you’re probably already familiar
with the basic procedure of semen analysis. Physicians commonly request
a semen analysis after a vasectomy to ensure that there is no sperm present
in the semen. However, this series of tests is also helpful for men who
have undergone vasectomy reversals. In these cases, semen analysis after
the procedure can evaluate its success.
You can hear more about semen analysis by watching this animation. It explains
that men may provide a semen sample in a sterile medical cup or a special
condom. If men collect the semen sample at home, they must keep it at
body temperature and take it to the lab or doctor’s office within
two hours. This video also discusses the various aspects of semen and
sperm that the tests will evaluate.
