What Men Should Know About Semen Analysis

A doctor may request a semen analysis after a man undergoes a vasectomy or a vasectomy reversal, or if a couple has been having unprotected sex for six to 12 months, yet hasn’t been able to conceive a child. When a semen analysis is performed after a vasectomy, it is for the purpose of confirming that there is no sperm present in the semen. After a vasectomy reversal, a semen analysis is used to evaluate the success of the procedure.

You can hear more about semen analysis by watching this video. It explains that the lab technician will check the semen sample for semen volume, semen thickness, sperm count, sperm motility, and sperm morphology. All of these factors affect fertility.

If you and your partner haven’t been able to conceive a child because of a prior vasectomy, make an appointment to see Dr. Green at the Center for Vasectomy Reversal. Call (941) 894-6428.
