No blood test is required. However, the first seminogram you do before you get started must be considered normal: concentration of spermatozoa higher than 15 million/ml, progressive motility greater than 32%, normal morphology depending on the method used. For more details, please refer to the table in section 7. If it’s not the case for you, your doctor will present you with alternative contraception methods that are more suitable to your specific situation.
It is advised to have a monthly seminogram done up until the sixth month, than every three months afterwards if the user properly applies the protocol. This simple and quick test is used to control that the thermal ring is correctly worn and that the desired effect endures. It is advised to observe a three-day abstinence period before a seminogram. No annual medical check-up is required when practising male thermal contraception.
