Does anyone know if there test for both volume and motility? DH and I did a home sperm test and his results came back as fine (two lines as opposed to one) but not sure if this also checks motility/that they are swimming in the right direction. Anyone know?

I'm pretty sure they only measure count and not any of the other things that matter (eg normal forms, infection, movement, semen volume). Best to get a proper test done by a lab.

Thanks Spartacus. Good to know. We had done a home test and thought all was fine but maybe it isn't! DH also did a semen test with the NHS but taking yonks to come back. Any idea what the NHS test shows?
