how does home sperm test read

Home semen analysis kits are

Home semen analysis kits are relatively new to the at-home diagnostic arena. However, if you're taking a little longer than you expected to get pregnant, doing a home semen analysis test won't hurt anything (except your wallet) and may provide some information.

Several different companies have released testing kits. Each kit is different, so read carefully to look for one that offers results for three primary causes of male fertility issues: measurable sperm presence, sperm concentration/count, and normal sperm motility.

Remember - a doc is not going to accept this as a true lab result, and expect a physician to require an old fashioned lab donation for official results.
