    What's Analyzed?

    VOLUME: Milliliters (mL) of your entire sample

    Volume refers to the amount of semen in your sample (measured in mL). Volume can fluctuate quite a bit depending on when you last ejaculated.

    CONCENTRATION: How many million sperm per mL

    Sperm concentration is the number of sperm per mL in a semen sample.

    COUNT: How many sperm are in your sample

    Sperm count is the total number of sperm in the entire sample. To determine the sperm count, sperm concentration is multiplied by the total volume of the sample.

    MOTILITY: How your sperm are swimming

    Sperm motility refers to the percentage of sperm that are swimming in a sample. This is important in fertility because sperm need to swim to reach and fertilize an egg.

    TOTAL MOTILE COUNT: How many sperm in your sample are swimming

    This is regarded as the most important factor for male fertility- it is the result of multiplying sample volume, concentration, and motility.

    MORPHOLOGY: How your sperm are shaped

    Sperm morphology refers to the shape of your sperm. A typical sample only has about 4%-20% of normal shaped sperm cells. Shocking? Well, you’re making 1,500 per second, so there’s bound to be some errors!

    What's Inside the Kit?

    Your semen analysis kit includes a specimen container (the thing you ejaculate into), a vial of preservation solution (designed to keep your sperm healthy in transit), detailed instructions (to help you get it right), and a gel pack (to help stabilize the temperature of your sample while it makes its way to our lab).

    Your kit will ship in an outer box that can be discarded. The kit itself functions as a return shipper box, and it will already have the return shipping label attached to it.

    Why Get a Semen Analysis?

    For half of all couples who struggle to get pregnant, sperm quantity or quality is at least part of the cause. A semen analysis is how you can assess your or your partner's sperm health, and understand how it might be impacting your fertility.

    FAQs

    What are customers saying?

    “Fellow really helped my partner and me with understanding that my semen sample is under the normal amounts for motility. Until we tested with Fellow, my wife thought she was the one with infertility issues—even though she has tested normal. Understanding this will now help us on a new process to have a child. Thank you, Fellow.”

    “It’s so much easier than scheduling an appointment with a lab. Do it at home and send it in! As easy as it gets.”

    “My Fellow experience was incredible from start to finish. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the results came even quicker than expected! I highly recommend to anyone looking for the BEST semen analysis experience out there.”

    “You guys thought of everything and made the process easy.”

    “I did my initial analysis through [an in-person lab] which was a nightmare. They were unresponsive and unhelpful and the process of trying to produce a sample and then scurry through town with it only to get stuck waiting for 20 minutes to hand it over was irritating. This process was simple and straightforward and came back with results in a reasonable amount of time. I'm very happy.”

    What is Fellow's refund policy?

    We are happy to provide a refund up until your kit ships out to you. After your kit ships, we generally cannot provide refunds or accommodate returns. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to support@meetfellow.com.

    How will I receive my results?

    Results are returned within 1.5 business days of when we receive your sample at our lab. With overnight shipping, this means 2-3 days from when you drop your sample off at a UPS Store.

    Once your results are approved, we'll send you a secure link via email to view your report in your Fellow account.

    Is Fellow available everywhere?

    Fellow is available in most states within the continental United States. We do not currently offer testing in Alaska, Hawaii, New York, and we can not ship to PO boxes.

    How do I know if Fellow is right for me?

    Fellow’s mail-in semen analysis makes it easy for you to understand what's going on with your sperm health, without having to make an appointment or produce a sample at a lab. If you’re trying to get pregnant, planning for the future, or just curious about your reproductive health, Fellow is an easy, comfortable, and cost-effective way to get information about male fertility.

    Is this the same semen analysis I would get at a doctor or a lab?

    When it comes to accuracy: yes. Fellow is the only mail-in semen analysis that is clinically validated and peer-reviewed. Our laboratory is CLIA-certified, and have demonstrated that our results are just as accurate as semen analyses performed in traditional, in-person labs (which use fresh semen samples up to hour after sample production).

    That doesn’t mean we’re just like everybody else. With Fellow, you’ll produce your semen sample at home. No more ratty old magazines and vinyl couches in some lab. No more waiting for an appointment and making awkward chit-chat with the person scheduling your semen sample production.

    How will I receive my results?

    Results are returned within 1.5 business days of when we receive your sample at our lab. With overnight shipping, this means 2-3 days from when you drop your sample off at a UPS Store. Once your results are approved, we'll send you a secure link via email to view your report in your Fellow account.

    Are Fellow's tests FDA-Approved?

    Great question, but not the right question. Laboratory tests like Fellow’s are never “approved” by the FDA. Laboratory testing is regulated according to what’s called the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments, or CLIA (pronounced “klee-yuh”). CLIA compliance is monitored by three federal agencies: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Fellow’s lab is CLIA-certified (CLIA Number: 05D2177822), which means we meet all federal requirements for providing doctors and patients with semen analysis results that can be used to make healthcare decisions. Our lab is also COLA-accredited. COLA (the Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation) is a private, physician-directed non-profit organization that helps labs meet the highest standards for quality and operate in compliance with federal and state regulatory requirements.

    How does Fellow protect my privacy?

    Fellow takes your privacy very seriously. Your semen analysis kit will arrive in a discreet cardboard shipping box. Nobody looking at it will know what’s inside, unless they closely inspect the return address and have used Fellow themselves in the past. If that’s the case, expect a fist bump. Congratulations, you’ve made a friend. The return shipping box is discreet as well, with no mention of semen analysis on the outside, so you can feel comfortable dropping it off at UPS. Our lab staff processes your sample using barcode numbers and other information that does not identify you personally. Our lab also destroys your sample after processing it, so you can rest assured that it will NEVER be sold, saved, or used for insemination. Finally, your results are stored and delivered to you via our secure platform.

    Can you send my results to my doctor or provider?

    Yes! When you register your kit, you can input your provider’s clinic information. We will send results to them at the same time we send them to you.
