Soon after egg collection the male partner has his role to play and will be asked to proceed to one of our collecting rooms. It is also possible to collect at home, if you live within an hour of the lab. Sperm can be frozen in advance of the day of egg collection if you anticipate difficulties.
Superior A.R.T. scientists look for two things in a sperm sample - freshness, and the quality of sperm. To ensure that the sperm is fresh we recommend ejaculation on the same day as the hCG trigger. To maximise the quantity of sperm, ejaculation should then be avoided until after the egg collection.
