I did two of them and they didn't show nothing. I think they are not much reliable in some cases of prostatitis but if I were you I would do one just in case.

Those cultures are made in the laboratories, not by the urologists. I don't know how it works in your country. Here, I asked my doctor to give me a prescription for the analysis and I took it to the laboratory. I think it should be similar.

I have had many urine micros and cultures but never a semen culture. I asked a urologist about it one time, and he just said "we don't do that here."

You must go to a laboratory and then take the results to the doctor.

I feel this is the best way to see if its Bacterial related. Basic medicine says if there the bacteria present it will be able to be cultured growth in a lab...no? Thus, if a lab cannot grow the semen sample wouldn't that prove there no bacteria present at the source?
