The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services performs a variety of different sperm tests at its conveniently located offices in Farmington and Hartford. The semen analysis is the cornerstone of testing for male infertility problems. This test provides important information about the quality and quantity of sperm. The semen sample is analyzed for volume, viscosity (thickness), pH and color of the ejaculate, sperm concentration, motility, morphology, and forward progression of the sperm. The sample is also examined for the presence of white or red blood cells, which may indicate infection or inflammation. From this painless test, we can tell how many sperm are present, appear normal and how many are moving.
