You can buy the containers at a pharmacy but you have to get them to the lab within an hour. You will also need a doctor to interpret the results for you.

Look on fertilitree dot com. You can buy a male fertlity test kit for about R420. You get two collection containers with it.

Hi K
Thanks for your response. I have all the information i need, sperms can be frozen and stored for years without them being spoilt. all i need is to know if i can buy the containers from the chemist and take them to the lab for tests and storage until the time i will need them.

I would think that should be left up to the professionals. I'm not sure how long sperm are viable once outside the body.
