A count sperm test is also referred to as semen analysis. Male testing for infertility problems is an essential part of determining if a couple can conceive naturally. Not many men know that sperm count is nowadays a very common problem and that male infertility is on the rise.

2. Take out the Semen Transfer Device from its sealed pouch and use it to stir the semen in the cup for about 10 times until it is well mixed.
3. The side of the box has a round perforation area, make sure this creates a stand you can use to hold the SpermCheck Solution Bottle.
4. Remove the cap of the Solution Bottle and place it bottle upright in the hold.
5. Insert the Semen Transfer Device into the semen sample. Make sure there is no solid or sticky material within the semen.
6. Pull plunger and allow the semen to go into the Semen Transfer Device. It should reach the black line on the tube.

Before reading the sperm test kit results make sure that a line is present at the Control (C). Please note that It does not matter how strong or weak a particular line is.
If the test worked properly, you should see a reddish line next to the C. If you do not see a line at the C position, your test did not run correctly and the results are not valid.
Next, look at the test line position in the result window (marked with the letter T). If you see a reddish line here, your sperm count is at least 20 million sperm per milliliter (positive). If you do not see a line at the T position, your sperm count is below 20 million sperm per milliliter (negative) and you should consult a physician about a complete fertility evaluation.
Many men like to used a sperm test kit at home because they want to know about their fertility status privately and avoid, if possible, the anxiety or inconvenience that often goes along with having a clinical semen analysis.
The fewer sperm a man produces, the lower the likelihood that one of them will be able to successfully fertilize the egg. Unfortunately, low sperm count is one of the main causes of reproductive problems in couples having a hard time conceiving.
There are many benefits of knowing if sperm count is a problem for you. The sooner a fertility issue is discovered, the sooner proper treatment can be started. Possible treatments include over-the-counter male fertility supplements like FertilAid for Men and CountBoost for Men.
