This new revolutionary sperm test product is called SpermCheck. It claims 98% accuracy in determining whether or not the male sperm count is within normal or abnormal ranges. A positive SpermCheck result indicates that the male sperm count is above 20,000,000 sperm per milliliter of semen, which is classified as to be within a normal range.
This new SpermCheck kit can be easily found online or in most pharmacies, and costs about $40. It is used by mixing ejaculated semen with a solution in the kit, and dropping the mixture onto a test strip. Similar to a pregnancy test, a reddish line indicates a positive normal sperm count, and a negative test shows no color, indicating an inadequate sperm count.
Personally I think this is an innovative product, but as a woman's health care provider, I want to educate you about "sperm analysis" and why relying on a home sperm counting device may cause you to lose hundreds and thousands of eggs if you do not have all of your sperm facts straight.
It is a well researched fact that 7.3 million women suffer from infertility every year in the US. The cause of infertility is 40% female and 40% male, while 20% of cases have a combined male and female factor. Infertility is a serious medical condition and should be treated as such. Fifty percent of male infertility cases are irreversible, and these men can never father a child. The other 50% of cases are caused by a treatable medical condition.
The longer the problem persists, the lower the chance there is of getting your partner pregnant. This is why if you have been trying to get pregnant for a long time, it is critical that you know these sperm facts.
Every month the male body produces over 12 billion immature sperm in the testes. It takes about 65-75 days to mature sperm. Under normal circumstances over 300 million sperm are released in the seminal fluid when a man ejaculates. Only 200 to 300 of these sperms will ever survive the 10-hour marathon it takes to get from the vagina into the fallopian tube where the female egg patiently waits.
Sperm have between 12 and 48 hours to find the female egg before they die off. Sperm can live 3 to 5 days in the body, and outside the body sperm die off rapidly as they need to be kept warm for survival.
It is my opinion that there is only one way to have your sperm tested properly, and that is to have a qualified health care provider, who is either an urologist or an infertility specialist, order and perform the test. The reason for this is that knowing the number of sperm you have is only one aspect of a semen analysis (sperm check).
• Semen Volume: Should be 2 to 6 million per cubic centimeter (cc)
• Sperm Count: 40,000,000 is normal. Less than 20,000,000 is classified as low.
• Motility: 60% of sperm should be able to swim forward.
• Morphology: 70% of sperm should have one head, one tail and a body.
• Semen Fluid Test: The male ejaculated fluid should liquefy within 20 to 30 minutes.
• Semen pH: Sperm pH should be between 7.2 and 8.0.
• White blood cells: More than 5 white blood cells indicate an infection.
It has been my experience that infertility is generally a silent and emotionally painful condition. Many people don’t want to talk about it, as admitting to the fact that we have infertility makes us feel we have failed our womanhood or manhood in some way. Furthermore, when we do seek help, the big question that is on our minds is "who is to blame?" I think on the whole women are more open to knowing the truth. Many men think that if they are producing a "load", then they do not need to be checked. This is far from the truth!
Times have changed! Babies coming into this world are of a higher consciousness. It is time that we as parents learn about the energy dynamics of conception, pregnancy and birth.

Your Birth, Your Choice, Your Reality is a profound telepathic message my oldest son Kyle transmitted through me when he was seven-week's old. As a Certified Nurse Midwife I stand in awe at the level of consciousness of newborn babies. As humans each of us has a mission, a purpose, a task or job to be done. Maybe my son’s message (grammatically unedited) will get you thinking about your mission, your purpose, your task or job you are here to do as a human being... At seven-week's post partum, I was awakened from a sound sleep at four in the morning. I heard a voice saying, ”Ma wake up, take a pen and paper, and write down this message.” This was a very strange occurrence and for a moment I thought, perhaps I flipped and was going crazy! I kept hearing the same sentence over and over again... Get this eBook click onhttps://www.Lumalove.com
