When a couple plans for a child and has difficulty in conceiving a child, both the male and the female partner would be asked to undergo certain basic tests. Of which the most important test for males is the semen analysis. Improper semen tests will often show false results and lead to unsuccessful visits and delayed time. Hence to make results more accurate, the following points should be noted before semen collection. Currently there are no topics under this speciality.
Producing a semen sample for either semen analysis or fertility treatment use may lead to the inability to ejaculate. There are several factors involved with producing the semen sample that may contribute to performance anxiety. Often the semen sample must be produced in the fertility clinic , in a room set aside for this purpose. While a good clinic will do its best to provide a sense of privacy, it's still not your home or your bedroom.
In order to obtain sperm of optimal quality, it is important that patients follow clinic instructions for semen collection. Be aware that clinics may have different protocols for sperm collection for intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization. Also, some programs may have men take an antibiotic prior to collection for IVF cases.
