Semen analysis is the microscopic examination of the shape, number, and movement of sperm. It is done on the freshly ejaculated semen in a laboratory. Male infertility can be diagnosed using this analysis.
A minimum of two semen examinations are done (6 weeks apart). This is done to check fertility in a proper manner. The male semen’s quality may alter between samples. In spite of the male being fertile, at times, poor health, fevers and infections may reduce the male’s sperm quality for some months.
