val - February 15

I'm 24 and my husband is 28, we've been trying to get pregnant for over 4 months now. I've been told that it's a lot easier to detect a problem with the sperm than the egg. Has anyone ever tried one of these home sperm count tests?My husband says that we haven't been trying long enough for him to go to the doctor. Do they work?Or do you recommend something else?

We haven't tried this yet, but I was wondering the same thing when I saw them at the store. Have you started keeping track of your basal body temperature yet to see if/when you are ovulating?

hello Val if you have been trying for only 4 months that really isn't long enough to be concerned. You need to be trying at least 1 year if under 35 years of age and 6 months over 35. My infertility doctor said that the over the counter kits do not test what the fertility drs test. They are not as percise but might be a good place to start at 4 months. The basal body temp is a GREAT start for you because it can pin point the day of ovulation and that is really all you need. Stop stressing you have alot of time yet. Good Luck and have Fun!!!
