Hi there... just wondering has anyone used this I would love some feed back... I was looking it on medicaltestcentre.ie and wondering was it anygood.... heres some info from the site
The FertilityScore is a revolutionary male fertility test that determines a man's sperm concentration and motility. Sperm motility refers to the ability of sperm to move around - a major factor in its ability to achieve fertilisation. This is a must for couples that are trying to conceive.
It says its over 90% acurate for both concentration and motility
) and got a very faint positive (he now knows how hard it is to interpret OPK's
) When he had his SA done the results showed a higher than average result or "super swimmers" as he keeps telling me
To be honest your better off seeing your GP and having him/her refer DH to one of the hospitals for a SA. My DH bought one of the fertility tests in boots (€130
Yeah I know lab tests would be much better but as we are just trying 6 months I wouldnt say they would send him for one but im going to go and see her anyway just to see what she says. Might give it a go and if its fine at least it will put my mind at rest

If she won't organise one try the Well Man centre in Pembroke road
ir you are in Dublin. My DH organised his one through them as their opening hours are a bit better than our GP's. Afaik they didn't ask too many questions (though we had been trying for 14 months at that stage)
Yeah, i agree with mrs loulou - i wouldn't bother with this. The test is so vague and doesn't really tell you anything - if it turns one colour, there's a good chance ur ok, if it turns another colour, then there's a good chance ur not - I needed more! We ended up getting a proper sa done and it was worth it - they can tell you the total volume, the motility etc. I'd save ur cash for that!
Afraid I already ordered it.... oops... well ill tell you how we get on. I think id trust a good result but if its bad id need to go further. Ill let ye know how it goes.
I got one of those things before. You'll have fun using it and yes its very accurate. Well it told us that hubbys sperm was very good by turning it a bright pink colour.
Best of luck.
*Mrs Loulou can you just ring the Well Man clinic up and get an appointmen. Just wondering as we are on our 9th month and i am getting my bloods done this month, so i was thinking if we don't get our BFP this month might try and get DH to go to the clinic.
Well used the kit this evening and thank god got a good result although hubby was dissappointed it wasnt higher in the positive scale.... kept trying to convince me it was two shades lighter
That great news Sally, now you can relax a bit. It is so hard when you don't' know if something is wrong.
