Our expert says:
A semen analysis or sperm test would be the most effective way of assessing fertility potential. The test needs to be done with a reputable centre ideally a fertility centre or a large laboratory group such as Lancet or Ampath. The requirements and method of sperm collection, transportation etc. will have to be discussed with the individual centre. Ideally it would be recommended that the sperm sample be collected at a facility which minimizes transportation and other variables which can adversely impact on the sperm quality and hence the accuracy of the result.
