What is a Complete Semen Analysis (CSA) or Sperm Analysis?
A semen analysis is usually one of the first tests done to help determine whether a man will experience difficulty fathering a child (infertility).
For a complete semen analysis, the 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 that may indicate infection or inflammation.

This test may be ordered to measure the volume of semen produced by a man and to determine the quality and quantity of sperm in the semen sample.
