These procedures can be performed 7 days a week, except for Christmas and New Year’s Day. We ask that you collect the specimen here in the office unless you live within 30 minutes of the clinic. In that case, you can ask to take a sterile plastic container home and bring it in to the office at your scheduled time.
Hours for collection:
M, T, Th, F: 7:30-11:00 am.
W: 7:30-10:00 am.
S-S: 8:00 – 9:00 am.
If you are collecting at home, these times are drop off times.
You will be asked to abstain from ejaculation for 3-5 days prior to producing the sample for insemination.
You will be taken to the private collection room. You should wash your hands and collect the sample in the sterile plastic container provided. It is important that you either write your name on the container, or use the label provided, otherwise the sample will be discarded. Then, place the container and paperwork behind the silver door in the wall. When you leave the collection room, make sure you leave the door to the room open. You can exit the clinic through the side doorway if you wish.
Your partner will return between 1.5 and 2 hours later for the insemination.
You will be given the amount of total motile sperm and grade of progression at the time of the insemination.
