Has anyone used this test? Did you also have it done by a lab also? Were the results the same?

I do not recommend the home test. It does not tell you the percentages if his sperm is healthy, moving in a straight line, bacteria present, if sperm head is shaped properly for conception, etc...

Thank you! My husband has been tested before and had a low count and refuses to do it again. I just wondered if he still has some.

Well since he has been tested before and you know the results of the other s____n testing go ahead and do the home one for a count. Good luck!!!

The home one still does not give you a "number" count. It will just turn blue if it is over 20 million. My dh took one and it turned positive saying he had over 20 million, but when we had one done by a professional lab it was only 13 million. I would try to talk him into going to the doctor.

Chas, Thankls for posting. I did not know what the home one showed as my DH went and had his done at the hospital and showed a count of 73 million and everything else was in the normal range.

Thanks for the post Chas! I know that the sperm count can vary day to day. I know my husband will not go in for it so I'll have to see what other methods I can use to collect from him. I just wonder how those test actually know that it's over 20 million.

I dont' know how those tests work, but they aren't very reliable. mtnla__s, have you talked to your dh about this? why are you so certain that he will not do it? I didn't think mine would either, but when it came down to us knowing what was going on... he wanted to know as much as I did.

oh, I just read your earlier post about him having one before. He is probably just scared... but who knows it could be better! I think the count does flucuate a lot anyway. I am hoping when my dh goes to the doctor that his has improved. I have been pumping him with all kinds of vitamins !!! lol - he just looks at me funny when I sit them down beside his dinner plate! :)
