Every vasectomy comes with a mail-in test kit at no extra charge. The cost is included in the total amount you pay for your procedure.
At least 12 weeks and 20 ejaculations after your vasectomy, you must test your semen to make sure that no sperm are present. Never rely on a vasectomy as effective birth control until after this test is complete.
We make it as easy as possible to submit your sample. Unlike other clinics that require you to go to a laboratory to collect the sample, we send you home with a mail-in kit on the day of your appointment.
We partner with Fellow, a CLIA-certified and FDA approved semen analysis testing system. You simply take the test home with you after your vasectomy and follow the instructions when it's time to check your semen for sperm.
Collecting a sample at home is much more convenient and comfortable than collecting at a clinic or lab. We know that it can be uncomfortable or anxiety-inducing when submitting a sample from inside the bathroom of a clinic or lab, which is why we love these Fellow kits.
Each kit comes with very clear instructions on how to collect and mail in the sample. Please make sure to read and understand everything thoroughly before beginning. It is very important to follow each step to ensure that the Fellow lab receives your properly packaged and labeled sample in a timely manner.
