RADdad at-Home Sperm Collection Kit

RADfertility’s RADdad at-home sperm collection kit provides a convenient and discreet alternative to the fertility center setting.

About RADdad at-Home Sperm Collection Kit

Our RADdad at-home sperm collection kit provides a convenient and discreet alternative to the fertility center setting. The kit can be easily returned by shipping through FedEx. This means your sample is not subject to the 1-hour turnaround time for at-home collection while eliminating the drive to our office locations for drop-off. Your specimen will be analyzed by our team of andrologists and results will be provided as if you had collected in office. In addition to a semen analysis, the kit can also be used for short-term cryopreservation (freezing) of your sperm.

Mail-In Semen Analysis Instructions

What you will find inside your semen analysis kit:

  • 1 sterile specimen container
  • 1 tube containing collection media
  • A blank specimen identification label
  • 1 plastic biohazard bag
  • 1 FedEx shipping bag
  • 1 tamper seal sticker

Important Notes

  • You must register your kit above before collecting your specimen.

  • Your specimen must be shipped on the day of collection which will be scheduled by your Patient Coordinator.
  • Refrain from all sexual activity/ejaculation (including masturbation and intercourse) for 2-5 days before the analysis. Do not abstain for longer than 5 days.
  • If you do not plan on collecting immediately, please refrigerate your RADdad kit as the enclosed collection media must be stored between 36-46°F.

Step 1: Prepare specimen container for collection

Remove the 5ml tube of collection media from the refrigerator 1 hour prior to specimen collection so it reaches room temperature. (Cold media should not be added to any specimens as it can affect sperm motility)

Step 2: Specimen Collection

The specimen should be collected directly into the specimen container, that now contains the collection media, by means of masturbation. Please keep in mind the following guidelines when collecting your specimen:

The use of condoms or lubricants (lotion, saliva, water, etc.) is not permitted as it may alter the results.

Avoid touching the inside of the sterile cup and lid as it may alter the results.

If any specimen is spilled, do not attempt to transfer it into the cup. Note any spills on the specimen identification label provided in your kit.

After the specimen is collected, place the lid on the container securely, ensuring that it is properly sealed in order to prevent any leakage.

Step 3: Labeling the Specimen Container

Complete all fields on the specimen identification label. Incomplete labels will render the specimen unacceptable and a new specimen may be required. Once complete, peel off the back of the label revealing the adhesive side and place the label around the outside of the specimen container.

Step 4: Pack and Prepare Specimen Kit for Shipping

Place the specimen container complete with the identification label and the lid tightly secured into the plastic biohazard bag. Close the zipper along the top of the bag. Insert the container back into the foam cutout inside the kit.

Close the kit and use the tamper sticker to seal the box. Place sealed kit in shipping bag provided.

"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."

"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."

"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."

"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"

Amy W.

★★★★★

"The day I met Dr. Neithardt I knew she was the perfect doctor for me. Dr. Neithardt was so compassionate every step of the way. She held my hand, she hugged away tears, and continued to give me hope. There are not enough 'thank you's' in the world for Dr. Neithardt and the whole RADfertility team who will forever have a special place in my heart."

"RADfertility's staff has heart and provided me with exceptional health care. I knew I was in good hands and felt like we were in this together. The doctors and nursing staff always answered all of my questions and provided thorough information about all of my options.

★★★★★

"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."

"Dr. Schillings always kept us informed and never gave up on us. She always explained our options and risks with each procedure. She called us personally when there were any issues or sensitive subjects to cover. Dr. Schillings was the first doctor that had answers for us and wanted to help us have our miracle baby!"
