When to Get Tested?

Sample Required?

For infertility testing, the sample must be analyzed within one hour of collection. Two separate collections on two separate days may be required.

Test Preparation Needed?

For infertility testing, refrain from having sex or masturbation for 2-5 days before sample collection; carefully follow instructions provided.
