- a simple first step
Which test do I need?
Complete Semen Analysis
This test helps diagnose or rule out issues that might be interfering with your intended pregnancy. Semen Analysis is simpler, less invasive and less expensive than procedures needed to test female infertility.
This test is used to confirm the efficacy of procedures such as Vasectomy.
