For all patients, it is crucial to have a Semen Analysis completed on their partner. This test allows Dr. Levin to evaluate his fertility status, in order to rule out any problems with male infertility that would inhibit conception.
Not all men are willing to do this test for a variety of personal and religious reasons. If your significant other does not wish to do this test, he is allowed to skip it.
If he is going to do a sperm count it is best to do so prior to scheduling the tubal reversal so that we know everything is satisfactory with him. Sperm counts collected within two weeks of your reversal may not even get reported to Dr. Levin so it is your responsibility to obtain it early enough for the count to be done, transmitted to Dr. Levin and then seen by Dr. Levin in a timely fashion.
