Males With Cancer: Semen Testing

Sunshine Coast IVF Male Cancer Semen Test

Are You a Male About to Start Cancer Treatment? We can help you find out if your sperm is fertile.

HOW TO ARRANGE FOR THIS TEST

Your local GP or your Fertility Specialist can arrange for you to have this test at Fertility Solutions. Phone the clinic in advance to book an appointment on 07 5441 7311.

If you provide us with contact details and give us your permission we will send a copy of the results to your local GP.

If you do not have a collection kit we can arrange for one to be sent to you.

There will be a cost for initial freezing of the semen. You will be informed of this on the day you phone to book your appointment. Please let reception know if you would like to use our on site, private collection room.

We strive to:

  • Make you feel welcome at all times
  • Listen to your questions and concerns
  • Work with you to fulfill your desire to create your family

Please contact us for more information.

How much does it cost?

We understand that now that you are facing cancer treatment, further medical expenses are a real concern.

We offer the following services for free:

  • Registration with the clinic should future fertility treatment be required
  • Semen analysis and written report of findings for your records

This would normally cost around $600 but we do not charge you for this.

We do ask you to pay an initial fee to cover the cost for freezing your sample and producing a report for you and your doctor. Please call the clinic for this cost.

Provided you maintain annual contact with the clinic we will waive our $350 annual semen storage fee.

PLEASE NOTE: Fees apply for fertility treatments if the sperm is used, or if the samples are transferred to another laboratory/fertility clinic at your request.

What do I need to do next?

Contact Fertility Solutions to arrange an appointment with one of our scientists. They will answer your questions, give you everything that you need and arrange a time to assess your sample.

We also have a psychologist available to discuss any concerns with you further if needed.
