Introductory Information


Principle: Semen analysis is a critical part of a fertility work-up. It is essential in the evaluation of infertile couples, as it aids in the assessment of fertility in males whose sperm production is suppressed by toxic agents or anti-fertility substances. Semen is examined macroscopically and microscopically for abnormalities.
