Macroscopic analysis of semen sample

Macroscopic analysis of semen sample

The first step of the seminogram is the macroscopic analysis of the sample. Here, parameters are analyzed that can be evaluated by the specialist at a glance. These include the following:

  • Volume or amount of semen.
  • Viscosity, i.e. the presence of fibres is evaluated.
  • pH, since it must be a value between 7-8.
  • Color.

This macroscopic semen analysis needs to be done as soon as possible after the sample is obtained for the results to be reliable.
