I've not tried them but they only test for sperm count I think, not motility or morphology which are more important. Private semen analysis is the way to go if you can afford it, from £100 upwards depending on area/number of clinics in the area.

Yes it says just the count is tested in them, but it's a start I guess, my OH isn't keen on going to the doctors to get checked out!! Xx

Yeah unfortunately the count could be great so then give him a false sense that everything is okay, when there could be an issue with the morphology or motility. Unless you've been TTC for over a year it's unlikely that the doctor will send him for an SA until you go for your initial investigations.

A private SA allows you to literally just go in and provide the sample for testing then get the results the same day, so he wouldn't have to see a doctor really. There may be a consultation beforehand but you could be there for that too.

Yes I've just been looking at private ones as he may go for that more than seeing the doctor about it.

It's definitely the next step but just need to convince him!! Xx
