Is the OTC male fertility test accurate?

Is the OTC male fertility test accurate?

Yes. Not a full test: The over-the-counter fertility test for men is called spermcheck and tests only sperm count (concentration): low or normal. Accuracy is ok. A full semen analysis (sa) through a fertility clinic looks at sperm count as well as motility (% that are moving) and morphology (% of normal-shaped sperm). Some clinics test sperm antibodies too. The home test is better than nothing but is not a full sa test.

Does alcohol or smoking reduce male fertility?

Yes: Both can have direct toxic effects at level of testicles. Smoking can create "oxygen radicals" that can directly effect sperm membranes and function of sperm. Both can have indirect effect at level of hypothalmus and pituitary, particularly alcohol, and effect stimulation properties on testicular production of sperm. Lastly, from testicles to ejaculation is 90d, thus effect can be long lasting!

Does frequent masturbation affect male fertility?

Probably not: Testicles make sperm at an alarmingly fast rate. It would be difficult to deplete sperm counts unless masturbation was more frequent than daily. To be safe, refrain from masturbating during partner's peak ovulatory days.
