At Home Fertility Kits?

I was in the drug store the other day and saw they have at-home fertility kits for men. Has anyone ever had their DH try one of these?

Hi Alyssa,

I didn't try the at-home kit, but we were able to get an S/A for DH while we were still in the WTT stage. My doc was great and just wrote "copy to patient" on the test requisition form, so we got a copy of the results in the mail (they are very easy to interpret...one column indicates what the "normal" range is, and the column next to it indicates what your DH's level is.) I figured if we were going to get a test, why not do a "real" one; and of course, that way, it didn't cost us anything. I'm not sure if all doctors would order a test so readily, but it might be worth asking your doc, if you're interested in testing DH's swimmers:). (BTW, either your doc or your DH's doc can order the test.)
