Can Intercourse Before A Sperm Check Affect The Outcome?
In the afternoon, my husband and I have been married for 1 year and 2 months, but have not been given any children. After consulting a doctor, my husband was given a referral to check sperm. We are advised not to have sex for 3 days. However, on the second day, we had sex even though my husband “didn’t ejaculate”. Does it affect the laboratory results later?
Hello Debby! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sperm examination is an examination to see male fertility. The results of the examination may not be in accordance with the actual situation if the man has intercourse within 3 days before the examination. If the mother and husband do have sexual relations, the examination should be postponed to get more accurate results. When collecting ejaculates for examination, avoid sexual intercourse to remove the ejaculate. The ejaculate should be removed in the laboratory where the examination is done, so that the ejaculate released is still good and can be more accurate. There are several parameters that will be checked from the semen examination, including the amount of semen, the acidity of the semen, sperm count, sperm concentration, sperm shape, and sperm motility.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
