Sperm collection

Husbands are asked to be present at the clinc during occyte recovery in order to produce a semen sample at that time. It is very important as the egg recovery cannot proceed until the semen sample has been obtained and prepared. The preparation may take one or two hours, with the goal of obtaining the most forward motile sperm from the ejaculate.

If there is the possibility that the husband will not be present during the procedure, or if it is anticipated there will be difficulty in producing a semen sample, special arrangements can be made with couples for the freezing of semen samples.
