Frequently Asked Questions
You can check your sperm count from the comfort of your home with an at-home sperm check test. All you need to do is provide the semen sample. SpermCheck offers two testing kits, each one tailored for specific stages in the male fertility cycle. For example, if you have had a vasectomy and want to ensure your semen is sperm free, the SpermCheck Vasectomy Test is for you. If you are looking to conceive but want to ensure low sperm count is not an issue, you should consider the SpermCheck Fertility Test.
Collect your sample in the semen container provided within the test kit. Ejaculate into the collection cup and avoid using any lubricants or saliva. Also, do not use a condom to collect the semen, as some condoms contain spermicides which can contaminate semen samples and lead to inaccurate results.
In some cases, your fertility status may change if you have certain underlying conditions. If medical conditions are a concern for you, consult with your primary care physician to discuss potential risks and interventions. Early diagnosis and intervention can play a pivotal role in optimizing fertility outcomes. Hormonal imbalances, structural anomalies, infections/increased count of white blood cells, and/or certain medications can cause male infertility or affect specific metrics like sperm concentration, semen volume, sperm motility, sperm morphology, sperm count, and more.
A typical healthy concentration of sperm is 15-20 million sperm per milliliter or more. Sperm analysis results that are lower than 15-20 million sperm per milliliter would be considered low sperm count.
The following dietary and lifestyle changes can help men with a low sperm count:
- Eat a healthy diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
- Replace animal fats with monounsaturated oils, such as olive oil.
- Certain specific nutrients and vitamins have been studied for their effects on male infertility and sperm health. While there is no conclusive evidence that they are effective, antioxidant vitamins (vitamin C, vitamin E) and the dietary supplements L-carnitine and L-acetylcarnitine, are known to help increase sperm count.
- Avoid cigarettes and any drugs that may alter normal sperm counts or reduce sexual function.
- According to a study from Harvard University, there is a direct correlation between waist size and testosterone levels. 2 The ideal BMI is between 20 and 25.
- Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night.
- Exercise moderately, but regularly, as excessive exercise can impair fertility.
- Although studies indicate that tight underwear is no threat to male fertility, there is no harm in wearing looser clothing (switch from briefs to boxers).
- To prevent overheating of the testes, men should avoid hot baths, Jacuzzis, steam rooms, and using a laptop computer directly on the lap for a long length of time.
- Avoid the use of sexual lubricants as they may affect sperm motility.
- Reduce stress. It is not known if stress reduction techniques can affect fertility, but they may help couples endure the difficult processes involved in dealing with infertility issues.
Your physician will generally determine the number of semen analysis tests required to ensure your sterility. Even with a complete semen analysis by your physician, we do recommend that you test yourself at two different time intervals in the first three months post-procedure. It is generally considered best to test 60 and 90 days after your vasectomy.
Additional semen testing should also be performed at least once per year after your procedure. Many men test every 6 months to ensure that their vasectomy is still working.
