You should abstain from ejaculation (masturbation or intercourse) for 2–5 days before producing your sample for most accurate results.
You should produce and ship your sample on the same day. Remember, our lab is not open over the weekend. Therefore, you should produce/ship your sample Monday–Thursday, not Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. We advise our clients to produce the sample in the late afternoon, just before at-home pick-up/drop-off at a participating shipping location, to avoid long transit times.
Remember to register your kit by scanning the QR code on your sample cup with your smartphone camera. This will allow you to set up at-home pick-up or find a drop-off location.
