Women usually do the asking when it comes to fertility.
Our aim is to help men become more aware of their own fertility.
 
   Home      Infertility Defined


Infertility itself is generally defined as;
the inability to achieve a pregnancy after one year
of regular intercourse without contraception.



A doctor will usually send a couple away if they have been trying for less than one year and tell them to 'let nature take its course'. Whilst medically justifiable this can be quite distressing for couples who often become concerned when trying for only a few months without success. 

Men that are investigated for infertility have to send a sample of their semen to the laboratory for semen analysis. Results usually take a few days. Fortunately you can now do a simple screening test at home and so do not have to wait until your doctor is prepared to test you. This also has the advantage of being discreet and less stressful because it is done in the privacy of your own home and no-one else need know about it. 
The FertilCount home test and our information will help you make a start.

A man is considered at risk of infertility if his sperm count is less than 15
 million sperm per ml of semen and probably sterile if his sperm count is less than half a million per ml. There are other parameters looked for by the laboratory and for more detailed information read Semen Analysis.
Men should consider testing themselves if they have taken body building drugs, smoke excessively, drink alcohol excessively, take extreme exercise, have hazardous and stressful jobs (for example deep sea diving), use DDT metabolite pesticides as part of their jobs (fruit farmers and flower growers), have had a sexually transmitted disease, had mumps as a child, or have had a traumatic injury to the testicles.
Possible causes for a low sperm count.
Excessive smoking

Excessive drinking of alcohol

Extreme exercise
Stressful occupations

Exposure to pesticides

Sexually transmitted disease history
