Hello, Rika N, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The sperm analysis test is a test used to determine whether the sperm has a normal number, shape, movement, acidity, and thickness of semen that affect male reproductive ability. The sperm test has a special procedure in order to get accurate results. Before the sperm test, men are advised to:
1. Do not release sperm (by any means be it masturbating or having sex) for 2 to 5 days before the test.
2. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and drugs that were not prescribed by your doctor 2 to 5 days before the test.
3. Avoid herbal medicines such as Echinacea or St. John's wort
4. Avoid hormonal drugs
5. Avoid using lubricants / lubricants during the test
For accurate results, doctors usually need more than 1 test, usually 3 times over a period of 3 months. Medicines given by a doctor can be hormonal drugs, supplements, or vitamins to improve sperm quality. However, for the extension of therapy, it is better to consult the doctor who handles it directly, because we do not know the exact drug given and do not know the patient's condition in detail. Changing the dose without the knowledge of the doctor who handles it directly can interfere with the doctor's treatment plan, so you should consult your doctor directly. If after 2 or more times the sperm test is abnormal, the doctor will follow up, for example by administering drugs and finding the exact cause by conducting further tests.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
