Quantity: 2 male sperm tests

description

Why you need it:

  • Fertilcount Male fertility test provides a rapid and private way for men to assess their sperm concentration in the comfort of their own home.
  • Helps identify whether a man's sperm concentration is above or below the critical threshold of 15 million sperm per ml, allowing early detection of potential sub-fertility.
  • Results are available in just 15 minutes, saving valuable time in the journey toward conception. The easy-to-use, at-home kit is a convenient option for couples planning a pregnancy.

Why we love it:

  • FertilCount boasts a 99% accuracy rate, ensuring reliable results for men assessing their fertility potential.
  • The inclusion of two tests in each kit allows for repeated testing, providing consistent and reliable results, enhancing the overall value of the product.
  • Clinical trials have demonstrated a 97% accuracy in identifying samples above or below the 15 million per mL cut off, making it a trustworthy diagnostic tool.

What is it (and why):

  • The FertilCount Male Fertility test cassette employs a staining process for sperm cells in semen, producing a blue colour. The darker the colour in the 'test well,' the higher the sperm cell concentration. This innovative technology provides a quick and accurate assessment of fertility potential.
  • FertilCount aligns with the World Health Organisations standards, ensuring that the test remains relevant and in line with current medical guidelines.
  • A positive result indicates a sperm concentration above the 15 million per mL threshold, offering reassurance. A negative result prompts the user to consult with a doctor, facilitating early intervention and potentially saving valuable time in addressing any fertility-related concerns.

how to use

Directions

1. First collect a semen sample. The semen sample may be collected by masturbation directly into the plastic liquefaction cup provided.

2. Once the semen sample is in the plastic cup, place the lid on the cup and gently swirl the contents of the cup for at least 10 times around the cup. Wait at least 15 minutes but not longer than 12 hours before testing the sample. Just before testing, swirl the cup contents around several times more.

3. Open the re-sealable pouch by tearing or cutting at the notches. Remove the contents and place a test cassette on a flat surface with the sample wells facing upwards.

4. Swirl the plastic cup before removing the lid. Hold and squeeze the plastic dropper at its midpoint.

5. Place the angled tip into the semen sample and release the pressure slowly. As you do this semen will be drawn into the dropper.

6. By gently squeezing the dropper add ONE drop of semen to the Test Well ‘T’, let the drop soak in for at least one minute.

7. Add TWO drops of BLUE solution to the same Test Well ‘T’. Let the drops soak in for at least one minute.

8. Add TWO drops of CLEAR solution to the TEST Well ‘T’. Let the drops soak in for at least one minute.

How to read the test results: Compare the colour intensity of Test Well ‘T’ with the colour of Reference Well ‘R”.

POSITIVE TEST: will be indicated if the colour seen in Test Well ‘T’ is the same as or greater than Reference Well R. This means the sperm count is equal to or greater than 15 million per ml.

NEGATIVE TEST: will be indicated if the colour in the Test Well ‘T’ is less than the colour in the Reference Well ‘R’. This means the sperm count is less than 15 million per ml.

If you are unsure of the results of the test, take a second test. The second test should not be repeated until at least 3 days later but not more than 7 days after the first test. If both tests are positive then your sperm count is equal to or greater than 15 million per mL. However, if either or both of the tests were negative then we recommend you consult your doctor with a view to having a full semen analysis performed.

Warnings

Please allow three days since your last ejaculation before using FertilCount. Do not open the foil pouch until you are ready to begin testing. Do not re-use. Do not use if the foil pouch is torn or damaged. Do not perform the test after the expiry data on the foil pack. For self-test use. Store in a cool, dry place (4-30°C). Do not freeze. Do not reuse. Colour blindness and improper lighting may affect the interpretation of the test results. This kit does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. A negative test does not necessarily indicate infertility and should not be used to determine if contraception is required. Consult your doctor before making any medical decisions. For in vitro diagnostic use only (not for internal use). Keep out of the reach of children.

Frequently asked

How does the FertilCount test kit work?

The FertilCount test kit works by staining the sperm cells in a semen sample to produce a blue colour. The more sperm cells that are stained in the sample then the darker the ‘test well’ becomes.

I am aware that there are many other factors other than sperm concentration involved in male fertility, so why should I buy this kit?

The FertilCount test kit offers you the option to test in the privacy of your own home. Sperm concentration is one of the critical determinants of male infertility, and this test is a useful indicator. Although, these home testing kits do not replace the tests done in a laboratory, they can be a good starting point, especially if you are feeling a little embarrassed.

There are small flakes at the bottom of the cup, should I still use the cup?

Yes, there is no need to remove the flakes. When the semen sample is added to the cup the flakes will be absorbed and will help the sample to liquify.

Does it matter how much semen is added to the Test well?

Yes, you must only add the number of drops that it tells you to in the instructions.

I made a mistake using the first test. What should I do?

It is best to start again using a new test.

A blue colour appeared after adding the blue dye solution to the Test well, but before the clear wash solution was added. Does this mean that the test is positive?

Not necessarily. Complete the test using the clear solution before comparing colours in the Test well labelled ‘T’ and Reference wells labelled ‘R’.

How long should it take for the semen or solutions to drain through the filter?

It usually takes just seconds. If it takes longer than 5 minutes the semen may not have liquified enough and the semen sample is too thick. You will need to repeat the test using a new semen sample.

Should I do two tests, or will a single test be enough?

A single test is useful, but two tests will give you greater reassurance.

How long should I wait between tests?

You should wait at least 3 days after ejaculating before you collect semen for testing. For best results you should do the second test between 3 days later but no more than 7 days later.

Does a positive test result mean I am fertile?

Not necessarily. A low sperm count isn’t the only factor that indicates infertility, and these tests are not fool-proof. If you have any concerns, please discuss these with your Doctor.

 Does a negative test result mean I am infertile?

If you get a negative result, please don’t panic. A low sperm count may be a temporary issue or another issue that may not affect your fertility. If you do get a negative result, please discuss this with your Doctor who may want to arrange some further tests for you.

Does medication affect test results?

Certain medication may affect sperm concentration and viscosity. If you are on any medication, please discuss this with your Doctor before doing the test.
