Semen Analysis

Semen analysis is a critical test performed to evaluate male fertility. It is usually one of the first tests recommended when a couple has difficulty conceiving. The test assesses various parameters of the semen and sperm, such as their concentration, morphology (shape), and motility (movement). This information helps to determine a man's fertility status or verify the success of a vasectomy.
