semen analysis cost

Semen Analysis Cost (2009)

The semen analysis is a basic diagnostic test for male infertility that can determine whether the sperm that is produced within the semen (at ejaculation) has a normal appearance. Sometimes, the semen analysis is proposed as a “sperm function” test, such as when “strict morphology” is performed, but the reliability of a semen analysis to determine the ability of the sperm to fertilize an egg (it’s function) is low (it is unable to accurately predict function).

A semen analysis is a valuable and a relatively inexpensive fertility test. In our offices a basic semen analysis costs 100 dollars and determines the volume (of the total ejaculate), concentration (number of sperm per mL ejaculate), motility (percentage of the total sperm that are moving), and morphology (shape of the sperm) of the sperm. With this information, our Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist will be able to consult with you to further discuss useful diagnostic tests and infertility treatments. If a mild to moderate male infertility problem is suggested, starting infertility treatment with natural cycles and intrauterine insemination (IUI) is usually considered. If these are ineffective, more aggressive management is then considered.
