Why you don’t need to be nervous about semen analysis

The most common reason men have for undergoing vasectomy reversal is to recover their fertility and have children. After a vasectomy reversal, you may therefore be worried about the fertility of your sperm. This is a very common concern, but it’s also very easy to address – all you have to do is undergo semen analysis. But is semen analysis really the right choice for you? We believe it is. You may be concerned about the cost of the analysis or about the process itself, but the reality is that there is no need to worry. In fact, we’d like to use this blog entry to address some of the concerns you may have about semen analysis.

The price of analysis

Here at The Vasectomy Reversal Centre, we include the cost of semen analysis in the price of your vasectomy reversal. So you don’t have to pay a penny to have your semen analysed if you have used us for your reversal surgery. This is because we firmly believe that follow-up semen analysis is an important part of vasectomy reversal. If you wish to have your sperm analysed by another organisation, you may have to pay.

The semen analysis process

The term ‘semen analysis’ can be a little intimidating. You may imagine that you have to go through a complex medical process to have your sperm analysed. But this simply isn’t the case. All you have to do is provide us with a sperm sample and we’ll do the rest. Once you’ve provided a sample, all you have to do is wait for your results.

The reliability of semen analysis

Semen analysis is highly reliable in most cases. Here at The Vasectomy Reversal Centre, our semen analysis is quality assured, so we can promise it will always be as accurate as possible. We are affiliated with a WHO Affiliated laboratory at the CARE Fertility unit and so your semen analysis will be tested by highly qualified embryologists, providing you with the most accurate results. The difference between home kits and looking in a microscope cannot be emphasised enough.

The truth is that there is no good reason to forgo semen analysis after a vasectomy reversal. Analysis is simple, safe, cost-effective and reliable. More importantly, it can help set your mind at rest and enable you to get back to life after your vasectomy reversal.
