For those looking to conceive but without easy access to a fertility center, a new at-home sperm test will be hitting the market in just a few months. The Trak Male Fertility Test, which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration earlier this month, will be available for consumer use this Fall.

So how does it work?

Men use a dropper to deposit a sample of their semen into a small well in the device. Powered by a small motor, the Trak quickly spins the semen so that the sperm cells settle on the bottom. The device then gauges the level of sperm cells in the sample.

You can learn more about it on trakfertility.com.

Is this something you’d try, or would you rather talk to the doc? Tell us in the comments below!
