I can't remember the exact time frame, but I think my semen analysis took about 1 or 2 weeks for results to come in (did not test for DNA fragmentation).
I had to make a separate appointment to give a frozen sample as backup for our IVF cycles (e.g. they didn't use my semen analysis sample for backup). I'm not familiar if they can freeze the semen analysis sample for use later. You can probably check with andrology lab at your clinic and they would have answer on that. I suspect that with fresh sample they can probably do some sort of analysis on the spot, because they told us they would only use my frozen sample if necessary.
