Quick (maybe stupid!) advice needed on semen analysis!

Hi all,
DH has to go for a semen analysis (begrudgingly known as the 'Spunk Test' grin tomorrow.
It is at Hammersmith hospital and my fretful DH needs to know whether you, ahem, produce when you are there, or do you hop on the Piccadilly line when your swimmers already in a pot?
Realise this must sound utterly ridiculous but realised I didn't know the answer!
Any clues?!

My dh 'produced' at home and took pot to the hospital under his armpit (as per hospital instructions) I strangely recall! But we drove...not sure about using the tube!!!

There, usually, in a normal hospital looking side room. If he's lucky there might be a cupboard containing 'adult material'! Where we live, you do actually do it at home then bring it in, but I think if they wanted you to do this they would have explained it and given him a pot!

My dp did his at home and I drove his to the local hospital.

Took about 25 min to drive, park and wait for someone to collect sample.

Iirc you've got an hour after producing sample to get it there.

Ah thank you! Will maybe tell him to drive lol - he is mortified enough!
Thanks for advice all!

The advice is to have the sample at the lab within 1 hour of producing.
DH did his at home as he felt he'd be more relaxed.
