How A Home Sperm Test Works
Test the quality

Improve your fertility
In order to test your semen, your doctor will ask you to provide a semen sample. Normally, you ejaculate into a collection cup in a room at your doctor’s office. The sample is then assessed under a microscope, which will give useful information about the specific functions of your sperm cells (i.e. the likelihood of a sample resulting in a pregnant partner). Normal sperm tests track the volume (amountof semen), concentration (how many sperm cells you have per milliliter of semen, motility (the amount of moving sperm cells), and total motile sperm count (the total amount of moving sperm cells in one ejaculate). Some sperm tests additionally assess features like morphology(the appearance of sperm cells), pH, color, the presence of other cell types and liquefaction time.
TheExSeed Home Sperm Test provides you with: Volume, concentration, motility and the total motile sperm count, which is similar to what many clinics assess. This is because the total motile sperm count is the one number that has been most highly associated with chance of pregnancy (1).
The most common diagnoses for a semen analysis include: Hypospermia: If there is a low volume Oligospermia: If there is a low amount of sperm cells Azoospermia: If there are no sperm at all Asthenozoospermia: If there is a large amount of sperm cells that does not move Tetrazoospermia: If there is a large amount of abnormal sperm cells. Leukospermia: If there is a large amount of round cells/white blood cells in the sample. Necrospermia: If there is a large amount of dead sperm cells. 1) https://doi.org/10.1093/humrep/dev058
A 2-test kit is perfect if you only want a snapshot of your sperm health. We follow the WHO guidelines and recommend a minimum of two tests to prevent any irregularity in the results.A 5-test kit will not only allow you to see your current sperm health, but it will be able to show the improvements as you implement the recommended changes from our app over a few months. The 5 test kits are cheaper per test than the 2-test kit and come with a free fertility cookbook.A 10-test kit will allow you to track your sperm health changes over a year period. It also works out cheapest per test and comes with a free fertility cookbook & a free fertility guide.
ExSeed is currently the only at-home sperm test assessing the total motile sperm count. This count is important because some other at-home sperm tests will fail to inform about common causes of male infertility. Our system is built to be easily shared with us or your doctor, making it possible to get a second opinion on your result. The ExSeed Home Sperm test uses microscopy which is what is also used in the clinic as the golden standard. This also means that you will get a nice recording of your swimmers. Our customer support is available to help you if you should experience any issues while testing or if you were in doubt if it was performed correctly.
Most home sperm tests are very simple tests that are easy to use. In difficulty they are similar to a pregnancy test. This is also the case for our home sperm test which is easy to use and interpret. If you are in doubt about your result or how to test, we are always here to help.
The ExSeed Home Sperm test tracks the same parameters that you would get in most clinics. These includes; volume (amountof semen), concentration (how many sperm cells you have per milliliter of semen, motility (the amount of moving sperm cells), and total motile sperm count (the total amount of moving sperm cells in one ejaculate). This is because the total motile sperm count is the one number that has been most highly associated with chance of pregnancy (1). 1) https://doi.org/10.1093/humrep/dev058
Sperm quality varies naturally, which means that you may have a test that is not ideal on one day, but still have a normal sperm quality. Several factors affect sperm quality including sickness (read more on that here) . We therefore recommend you to test your semen quality twice. This should be more than one week apart and it would be good to test it again one month after. This is also what is recommended by the sperm testing guidelines of the WHO.
