For getting accurate results it is very important to following the necessary instructions to get the best sample:
Avoid ejaculation for 24 to 72 hours before the test Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and drugs such as cocaine and marijuana two to five days before the test Stop taking any herbal medications. If you are on any such medications you must discuss this with your consulting doctor. Avoid any hormone medications as instructed by your consulting doctor. Avoid giving semen sample if you are having an ongoing infection as it can affect the sperm quality. Avoid collecting the sample at home as it may increase the risk of contamination and must be delivered for at the center within 2 hours of ejaculation.
