No good home test: Azoospermia should be diagnosed by an andrology lab at a fertility clinic or urology clinic. More than one semen analysis is needed to confirm the diagnosis. If we see a semen sample with no sperm we use a centrifuge to 'spin down' the specimen so that we can find very low numbers of sperm. See a fertility md.
