Each kit comes with four (4) tests, and refill packs are available so that you can see changes over time. Your sperm count can change daily, weekly, and monthly due to changes in your health, lifestyle, and the world around you. To get the most accurate benchmark results, we recommend testing twice to establish a baseline for measuring progress. After that, you should test at least monthly outside of your partner’s fertile window (the six-day interval when pregnancy can occur, ending on her ovulation day).
In many cases, men start to see results starting after one month. That said, be aware that it takes sperm a while to fully develop. It may take two months or longer to see meaningful concentration changes after implementing health and lifestyle changes.
The results indicate the amount of sperm that is present as:
Studies show that statistically, partners of men with higher sperm concentrations conceive faster. When your sperm concentration is high enough (optimal), you're likely to have enough quality sperm to overcome any abnormalities in other sperm parameters. This can include poor motility or morphology, referring to the size and shape of sperm. These factors may put you at higher risk for infertility. Men with a low sperm concentration are at a high risk for infertility. In this case, it is recommended that you see a healthcare provider who may further perform diagnostic tests that assess other parameters affecting your fertility.
