Male Fertility Test
Low sperm count is one of the main causes of male infertility. Experts estimate that up to half of couples who are having trouble conceiving are having male fertility issues.
SpermCheck Fertility - At Home Sperm Test
SpermCheck Fertility is an easy to use, at home fertility test for men that is accurate and affordable. In a clinical study at the University of Virginia the SpermCheck Fertility was compared to standard in-laboratory sperm count methods and accurately measured sperm count 96% of the time.
The SpermCheck Test will tell you in thirty minutes if your sperm count is above the minimum standard of 20 million sperm per milliter of semen established by the World Health Organization (WHO). The sperm count test will give you a positive or negative result only and not an actual count of the sperm. A positive result will mean your sperm count is above 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen. A negative result will mean your sperm count is below 20 million sperm per milliter of semen and more testing by your doctor may be needed.
Using an at home male fertility test will give you information about your fertility status in the privacy of your home. No embarrassing doctors visits where you have to produce a semen sample for lab analysis. The home fertility test is an easy first step in determining your sperm count.
Q: What is a “normal” sperm count?
The accepted standard for a “normal” sperm count is 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen.
Q: What is a “low” sperm count?
Anything below 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen is considered a “low” sperm count, also called oligospermia. Severe oligospermia is typically defined as a sperm count less than 5 million sperm per milliliter of semen.
Q: How accurate is SpermCheck Fertility?
A clinical study conducted at the University of Virginia comparing the accuracy of SpermCheck Fertility to standard in-laboratory sperm count methods showed that SpermCheck Fertility correctly measures sperm count 96% of the time.
Q: If I get a positive result from SpermCheck Fertility, am I fertile?
A positive result from SpermCheck indicates that you have a normal sperm count; however, a positive SpermCheck Fertility test alone does not prove that you are fertile. Other factors besides your sperm count, including low motility of your sperm and/or abnormal size or shape of your sperm, can affect your fertility status. If you and your partner have been trying to conceive without success for a year or more, you should see a doctor for a complete semen analysis, even if you get a positive result from the SpermCheck Fertility test.
Q: If I get a negative result from SpermCheck Fertility, am I infertile?
A negative result from the SpermCheck Fertility test indicates that you have a sperm count below 20 million per milliliter; however, a negative SpermCheck Fertility test alone does not prove that you are infertile. The test does not indicate how much below 20 million per milliliter your count is, and it is important to remember that 10% of fertile men have sperm counts below 20 million per milliliter. A negative test result indicates that you should seek the advice of a physician about possible causes of, and treatments for, your low sperm count.
Q: I don’t see a reddish line next to the C in my test window. Is my test valid?
No, if you don’t see a line at the C position, your test did not run correctly and the results are not valid.
Q: How do I interpret the results of my SpermCheck Fertility Test?
Interpreting the results of the SpermCheck Fertility Test is simple. First, if the test is valid, you will see a reddish line at the C position in the test window. If you don’t see a line at the C position, your test did not run correctly and the results are not valid. If you see a reddish line at the test line position in the result window, your sperm count is at least 20 million sperm per milliliter and the test is positive. If you do not see a line at the T position, your sperm count is below 20 million sperm per milliliter, and the test is negative.
Q: Can I use my SpermCheck Fertility test more than once?
No. Each SpermCheck Fertility Test is single use. When you decide to retest your sperm count you will need to purchase another SpermCheck Fertility test.
Q: How frequently can I test my sperm count?
If you are working to increase your sperm count, it is recommended that you recheck your sperm count every three months.
Q: What other factors, besides my sperm count, might be impacting my fertility status?
Sperm motility, the measurement of how well sperm is able to move through the female reproductive system to meet the egg, is an important factor in determining male fertility. Normal sperm motility is defined as at least 60% of observed sperm, or at least 8 million sperm per milliliter of semen, showing good forward movement. If your sperm motility is low, even if your sperm count is normal, you may have difficulty conceiving. Sperm morphology, or the size and shape of your sperm, is also an important indicator of fertility. Abnormal size and shape can decrease the ability of the sperm to penetrate the egg for fertilization. If you have determined that your sperm count is normal, but you continue to have difficulty conceiving after 1 year of well-timed intercourse, it is recommended that you see a physician to have a full semen analysis to determine your sperm motility and morphology.
