Are male fertility home testing kits reliable?

User avatar Hello,
We have limited information about the reliability of home testing for semen analysis. For most accuracy I would suggest having an accredited lab do this but if you are uncomfortable seeing a doctor and the test is affordable for you, you could try this as a first-line measure. Just know that because it is new there is not a lot of information to validate the test done at home.

Best wishes.
