Do you always need a referral to get a sperm analysis?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 11/20/2017

Yes. When a man has been trying to conceive for one year without success, the couple is recommended to visit a fertility specialist to have the fertility of both checked. In such case, the man will be referred to get a sperm analysis or seminogram, and the if he produces fertile sperm or not. You can, however, take an at-home sperm test kit, although its effectiveness is not as good as if done at the lab.
