Semen Analysis


Semen Analysis Test


In today's world, with increasing concerns about fertility and reproductive health, it is crucial to understand the importance of semen analysis. Semen analysis is a test performed to evaluate the quality and quantity of sperm in a man's semen. It provides valuable insights into male reproductive health and plays a significant role in diagnosing fertility issues. 

At Borneo Hospital in Thane, we offer comprehensive semen analysis services that adhere to the highest standards of quality and accuracy. 

What Is Semen Analysis?

Semen analysis, also known as a sperm count test, is a diagnostic procedure that assesses various parameters of semen, including sperm count, motility, morphology, and other related factors. It is a crucial tool in determining male fertility potential and identifying any underlying issues that may hinder conception.

Why Is Semen Analysis Important?

  • Semen analysis provides valuable information about male fertility and helps diagnose potential causes of infertility.
  • It analyzes the quality and quantity of sperm to identify issues such as low sperm count, poor sperm motility, abnormal sperm shape, or the presence of infections or other abnormalities.
  • The results of semen analysis guide healthcare providers in developing an appropriate treatment plan tailored to the individual's needs.

How Is Semen Analysis Performed?

Semen analysis is performed by experienced and trained professionals. The process involves collecting a semen sample, which is then analyzed under a microscope. The sample is evaluated for various parameters, including sperm count, motility, morphology, and other factors. 

The results are then interpreted by our expert medical team, who provide comprehensive insights and recommendations based on the findings.


What Should You Expect During A Semen Analysis Test?

  • You will be provided with clear instructions on how to collect a semen sample. 
  • The sample is usually collected through masturbation in a private and comfortable environment. 
  • Alternatively, a specialized condom or a collection container may be provided for sample collection during sexual intercourse.

How Long Does The Semen Analysis Test Take?

The actual semen analysis test itself typically takes around one to two hours, depending on various factors such as sample quality and laboratory workload. 

However, the entire process, including sample collection and analysis, may require multiple visits or consecutive days, as certain parameters require analysis at specific time intervals.

What Factors Affect Semen Quality?

Semen quality can be influenced by various factors, both lifestyle-related and medical. These factors include age, overall health, and well-being, exposure to environmental toxins, certain medications, smoking, alcohol consumption, drug use, and excessive stress. 

It is essential to discuss these factors with your healthcare provider to understand how they may impact your semen quality and overall fertility.

How To Read A Sperm Analysis Report

A sperm analysis report is a medical document that provides information about the quality and quantity of a man's sperm. The report typically includes the following information:

  • Semen volume: This is the total amount of fluid in the semen sample. The normal range is 1.5 to 5 milliliters (mL).
  • Sperm concentration: This is the number of sperm per milliliter of semen. The normal range is 15 million to 259 million sperm per mL.
  • Sperm motility: This is the percentage of sperm that are moving. The normal range is 40% to 80%.
  • Sperm morphology: This is the percentage of sperm that have a normal shape. The normal range is 30% to 40%.
  • Other factors: The report may also include information about the pH of the semen, the presence of white blood cells, and the viscosity of the semen.

What If The Semen Analysis Test Results Indicate Abnormalities?

If the semen analysis test results indicate abnormalities or potential fertility issues, it is recommended to consult with a fertility specialist or urologist. They will further evaluate the results, conduct additional tests if required, and develop a personalized treatment plan to address the specific concerns identified.
