Hi Mr Murthy
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Semen analysis should be done after abstinence of 3-7 days for proper results. Reason behind this abstinence period is when you give sample after abstinence of more than 7 days, sample is more concentrated and contains more of dead sperms. And when you give sample within 3 days sample is scanty and contains less sperms and it may not be representative of your actual status. All the best.
