**REVIEW** SpermCheck Fertility

Recently, I was sent a product called SpermCheck Fertility to review. After MUCH begging and pleading on my end, my husband reluctantly gave it a shot. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take part in any of it, because he chose to do it while I was sleeping.

Directly from their website:
SpermCheck® Fertility is a simple, FDA-approved male fertility product that provides quick and reliable results,
 indicating if your sperm count is high enough for successful conception. The SpermCheck® Fertility kit, which 
can be used in the privacy of your own home, quickly informs men whether their sperm count is normal or low. 
This innovative male fertility test can help rule out male infertility or provide answers to conception problems 
prior to visiting a fertility specialist. 50% of the time, male infertility is the cause of conception problems and 
80% of the time, the male is not tested.

So, from my end, it appears to be relatively simple with some minor guidelines. Wait at least 48 hours since the last ejaculate, but no more than 7 days, or the results may be wrong. Other than that, as long as you follow the directions, it isn't hard.

The kit comes with the instructions, a collection cup for your sample, a solution bottle, a semen transfer device, and the actual test.

You would need to obtain a sample directly into the sample cup, without missing a drop. After that, it needs to sit on a flat surface for at least 20 minutes to allow it to thin out a bit.
After those 20 minutes (but no more than 3 hours), you would remove the transfer device and stir it about 10 times to ensure it's equally mixed. After mixing, you need to use the plunger from the transfer device to retrieve enough semen to go up to the black line, avoiding air bubbles. After retrieving enough in the plunger, you need to deposit it into the solution bottle, slowly. Once it's all in there, place the cap back on the solution bottle, and gently mix it by turning the bottle upside down at least 5 or 6 times, more so if your sample is thick. If you shake it too hard, you might end up with foaming. Let the solution stand for 2 minutes, then gently squeeze exactly 6 drops into the testing window. Your result will be visible at 7 minutes after placing the drops in the testing window. If you read it before, or after those 7 minutes, the results may be inaccurate.

A positive test will have a line next to the 'C' (control) and the 'T' (test) in the windows. That means that the sperm count is at least 20 million per milliliter. If there is no line next to the 'T', then your sperm count is less than 20 million per milliliter. With either result, you should contact your doctor to have more extensive testing done. Especially if you are trying to conceive and are struggling.

Hubby's result was positive. Which is not a surprise to either of us.

All in all, it's a great little tool to reassure your mind if you (or your hubby) have fertility concerns. It appears to cost around $40 for one test. I have not seen them in stores, but this is not something I have actively been seeking out.

The only complaint Anthony had about it was that the cup was too small. He had no issues doing the test himself and did not need to wake me up to ask for help.
