    we bought one and my DH did it last week. Although it was a bit of a palava it did help put his mind slightly at ease when it was ok.

    We saw the doc on Tuesday and mentioned that we'd done the test and he still has to send DH for an official test anyway but from the DH's point of view he's less anxious about giong now that he would be if he hadn't done the test at all.

    I think telling the doc that we'd gone to the trouble of doing a home test made him realise how serious we were about ttc too

    Hi there

    The check that the docs do is the best in my opinion - it is quick, easy and gives you a full result including, amount, mobility and if they are normal or not and it is FREE! which is the best thing. Also if you go on to have any sort of fertility investigation they will need that info anyway so I say use the test if you have it but defo accept the docs test

    Good luck - my DH had a volume of 65 million and he was over the moon with the result - he said he would have paid anything - it was sooo funny

    Lots of love and good luck
