    Default FertilitySCORE Male Sperm Test

    Hi all,

    Was just looking on LullabyConceptions.com - At Home Fertility Testing in Australia and found the FertilitySCORE Male Sperm Test.



    Me and DH will not be starting to try for a baby for a couple of years but I have been wanting him to go and have a semen analysis done just for peace of mind. I think the idea of going to his GP and having to give a sperm sample scares him - expecially because we're not even trying yet. So I just came across this product and I'm wondering if anyone's DH has used it and how effective it was.

    Sounds like the answer to my problems really!!

    Usually with a sperm test the doctor or lab just gives you a container to take home for your partner to fill at home and then you take it to the lab quickly. If your doc orders it to be bulk billed the test will cost you nothing.

    I've been told they are a waste of money and just to go to your Dr and they give you one anyway.... if you buy it and do it at home, the Dr or specialist would still have to do one for you anyway so not really any point iykwim?
    I was looking at buying one recently as we've been trying for 6mths now.

    Good luck when you do start trying

    Thanks gals, big help - I think I am happy to wait. I am confident that everything will be ok. I really don't want to take the fun out of the planning. We will cross that bridge when we have to.

    Thanks again!

    Hey amysarah85

    As you know there are a lot of things that go into the 'art' of conception. I don't think its really anything to worry about unless you have been trying for at least a year and have not yet conceived.

    Besides its not just the numbers, they also have to be able to swim etc. etc. If you were serious about this you would be best to get your GP to refer you to a Fertility Specialist. Leave it to the experts.
