Refrain from any sexual activity including masturbation for at least 2 days and no more than 10 days. Longer or shorter periods of abstinence may result in a lower sperm count or decreased sperm motility. A private room is available for semen collection within close proximity of our laboratory and is recommended for collection. The semen specimen should be obtained by masturbation. Alternate methods may be discussed but are not recommended. Do not use any lubricant, including saliva, when collecting semen.
