Post-vasectomy semen testing is conducted to ensure that your vasectomy is successful.
Testing must be completed at least 8 weeks after your procedure and after at least 15 ejaculations. Some patients may require several months before their test is successful. In the interim, continue using other forms of birth control.
DrSnip offers mail-in semen testing so that you can conveniently collect and submit your sample in the comfort and privacy of your home. The testing kit will be mailed to your home eight weeks after your vasectomy. Follow the accompanying instructions to collect your sample and drop off the pre-paid box at any USPS location. We will contact you with the results once we receive them. The mail-in kit is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for the $45 cost.
We are also happy to place an order for a test to any laboratory that does post-vasectomy semen testing (procedure code CPT 89321). If you prefer this option, we will need the laboratory’s information so that we can order your test. Please note that we are not responsible for any costs that you may incur if you choose this option.
