Dear Love bug

A simple sperm analysis can be done at any of the major laboratories based at larger private hospitals such as Lancet laboratoryies or at Ampath laboratories. Should you require a fertility workup as well then I would advise you to consult the St Augustine Hospital for further information or alternatively seek out Dr A Ramdeo.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.

Make an appointment with your gynae or GP. My gynae required that my husband be tested first before she would consider more tests for us. She does this as some men won't admit the problem is with them so she makes sure all the men get tested.

A semen analysis will cost you R550 at Lancet (not covered by Medical Aid) which you pay for at the lab. Your husband can collect the sample jar the night before, and will need to get the sample there within 1/2 an hour in the morning and will need to keep it in his pants or pocket to ensure that it stays at body temp.

The result shouldn't take longer than a couple of days. Your gynae will order a couple of other tests for yourself to rule out endocrine/hormonal problems.

Good luck and I hope your baby dreams come true.
