Has anyone heard of Fertell? or used it? I have been surfing around and came across this fertility test and wanted to get some feedback...

I spent a sheeshload on this test, looking back I think it was a waste for me because I a) used it only 2 cycles off of BCP, and b) used it before the months & months I've been supplementing. I really think I would get a better result now. It showed me "borderline" for high fsh. And when I bought it I thought I was only buying the woman's kit (it was expensive) and realized after I broke open the box I had bought the men/women. So the men's test is in the closet, and dh and I have been thinking we might go ahead and use the men's test since we have it. After all was said and done, I could have bought a cheap fsh pee stick online, would have resulted in the same thing for much MUCH less $$.

I have used it and found it helpful... bought the M/F test and it led us to the doc for further testing. put my mind at ease though. Found out H had a mild infection and needed antibiotics and now has a thumbs up test.

Just depends on your needs. If you are just starting trying, then it may be a way for you to mentally relax and not worry about the "am I this... am I that's". I found I got way too wrapped up in research and and then couldn't relax -- I diagnosed myself with all sorts of fertility issues (which, we know at my age is common concern!).

Keep a level head and if your gut says you need to test, take it and move on from there.
