Can you check sperm count at home with a microscope?

Although sperm count plays a major role when determining a man's fertility, there are at-home kits that allow a man to evaluate his sperm count without involving a professional. Some kits contain a microscope that allows couples to examine the count of sperm. Even though this option can be somewhat helpful, we do not recommend this method to evaluate your infertility.
