How we measure your sperm

The ExSeed Home Sperm Test measures the Total Motile Sperm Count.

This is the total amount of sperm cells moving forward per ejaculate. This number is one of the best predictors of male fertility because it measures the amount of sperm cells that could possibly reach the egg
after intercourse.

The number is made up of the three measurements: volume, concentration, and motility.

Volume measurement


Semen volume is the total quantity of fluid ejaculated. A normal volume is more than 1.5ml. Below that is called Hypospermia and can, for example, be caused by hormonal abnormalities or ductal blockage..


Sperm concentration is a measurement of how many sperm cells there are in each milliliter of semen. A normal concentration is above 15 million sperm cells per milliliter. Being below 15 million sperm cells per milliliter is referred to as oligospermia, and it is called azoospermia if there are no sperm cells at all.


Sperm motility is the forward motion of sperm cells. For a sperm to impregnate the egg, it must travel quickly through the female reproductive system, which requires strong forward swimming motion. Our algorithm tracks forward motility, which is also referred to as progressive motility. Normal motility is above 32% of the sperm cells moving, below that is called asthenozoospermia.

Ever since Dan finished chemo 6 years ago, we’ve always wondered if he’d been left infertile, as his doctors warned at the time.
@exseedhealth are on a mission to broaden accessibility to fertility testing, and break down stigmas about male fertility to help men take a proactive step in their part of the journey to pregnancy.
It’s really easy to forget isn’t it that men can struggle with fertility just as much as women can.
Let's talk about fertility We was asked by @exseedhealth if we can share with our followers the benefits of the ExSeed entirely at home sperm test kit.
Ever wondered what sperm looked like? 👀 @exseedhealth reached out to me recently and have so kindly given us one of their at home sperm testing kit! And it is SO easy to use!!
Raising awareness for Men’s fertility through @exseedhealth 🩵 As I have expressed before I suffer with some fertility issues, and because I’ve always known this we didn’t think to test Liam’s fertility. But with these easy at home testing kits we’ve now brought the healthcare home 🏠
Listen up men! Ever feel helpless and like you can’t do anything to help your partner in your fertility journey?! Fertility journeys usually are female-focussed in the healthcare system, but did you know male factors account for around a third of couples unable to conceive. ExSeed are giving men back some autonomy to test themselves for male factor infertility, from the comfort of your own home.

In order to test your semen, your doctor will ask you to provide a semen sample. Normally, you ejaculate into a collection cup in a room at your doctor’s office.   The sample is then assessed under a microscope, which will give useful information about the specific functions of your sperm cells  (i.e. the likelihood of a sample resulting in a pregnant partner).    Normal sperm tests track the volume (amount of semen), concentration (how many sperm cells you have per milliliter of semen, motility (the amount of moving sperm cells), and total motile sperm count (the total amount of moving sperm cells in one ejaculate). Some male fertility tests additionally assess features like morphology (the appearance of sperm cells), pH, color, the presence of other cell types and liquefaction time.

The ExSeed Home Sperm Test provides you with: Volumeconcentrationmotility and the total motile sperm count, which is similar to what many clinics assess. This is because the total motile sperm count is the one number that has been most highly associated with chance of pregnancy (1).

The most common diagnoses for a semen analysis include: Hypospermia: If there is a low volume Oligospermia: If there is a low amount of sperm cells Azoospermia: If there are no sperm at all Asthenozoospermia: If there is a large amount of sperm cells that does not move Tetrazoospermia: If there is a large amount of abnormal sperm cells. Leukospermia: If there is a large amount of round cells/white blood cells in the sample. Necrospermia: If there is a large amount of dead sperm cells. 1) https://doi.org/10.1093/humrep/dev058

  •  A 2-test kit is perfect if you only want a snapshot of your sperm health. We follow the WHO guidelines and recommend a minimum of two tests to prevent any irregularity in the results.
  • A 5-test kit will not only allow you to see your current sperm health, but it will be able to show the improvements as you implement the recommended changes from our app over a few months. The 5 test kits are cheaper per test than the 2-test kit and come with a free fertility cookbook.
  • A 10-test kit will allow you to track your sperm health changes over a year period. It also works out cheapest per test and comes with a free fertility cookbook & a free fertility guide.
ExSeed is currently the only at-home sperm test assessing the total motile sperm count. This count is important because some other at-home sperm tests will fail to inform about common causes of male infertility. Our system is built to be easily shared with us or your doctor, making it possible to get a second opinion on your result. The ExSeed Home Sperm test uses microscopy which is what is also used in the clinic as the golden standard. This also means that you will get a nice recording of your swimmers. Our customer support is available to help you if you should experience any issues while testing or if you were in doubt if it was performed correctly.
Most home sperm tests are very simple tests that are easy to use. In difficulty they are similar to a pregnancy test. This is also the case for our home sperm test which is easy to use and interpret. If you are in doubt about your result or how to test, we are always here to help. See our instruction video to see how easy it really is:

The ExSeed Home Sperm test tracks the same parameters that you would get in most clinics. These includes; volume (amount of semen), concentration (how many sperm cells you have per milliliter of semen, motility (the amount of moving sperm cells), and total motile sperm count (the total amount of moving sperm cells in one ejaculate). This is because the total motile sperm count is the one number that has been most highly associated with chance of pregnancy (1). 1) https://doi.org/10.1093/humrep/dev058

Sperm quality varies naturally, which means that you may have a test that is not ideal on one day, but still have a normal sperm quality. Several factors affect sperm quality including sickness. We therefore recommend you to test your semen quality twice. This should be more than one week apart and it would be good to test it again one month after. This is also what is recommended by the sperm testing guidelines of the WHO.

ExSeed’s Home Test has not been certified to assess whether there are no sperm cells present or the effectiveness of various methods of contraception, both temporary and permanent (like vasectomy). Therefore, we would not be able to provide a conclusive answer based on our home test. That being said, a relatively large number of people have used ExSeed to give an indication on whether there are live sperm cells present post-operation or in other circumstances.

In the app, there is a button you can click on to indicate you’ve had a vasectomy, which will make the Medical Team do an extra careful manual assessment (visual inspection) of the test as well.

Wearing tight pants and underwear

Studies show that men who wear looser underwear have higher sperm concentration and total sperm count compared to men who wear tighter underwear. So, lose the tight clothes and wear something loose to give your testicles some air.

CONCLUSION: learn more about how heat can affect sperm quality here.


Besides higher mortality rate and various diseases, stress is associated with low sperm quality. Stress is known to be associated with lower testosterone levels and oxidative stress with both playing an essential role in producing and maintaining healthy sperm cells.

CONCLUSION: If you feel stressed, we recommend you get some help so you can have a balanced mental health. For a stress management guide, download the ExSeed app for free and start your personalized action plan today.

Physical activity

Scientific studies show that men who are physically active have better semen parameters than men who are inactive. Fertility specialists also state that regular physical activity has beneficial impact on sperm fertility parameters and such a lifestyle can enhance the fertility status of men.

Prioritizing exercise can help improve your overall health and result in healthy, fast swimming sperm cells that have good chances of fertilizing an egg.

CONCLUSION: Try incorporating exercise in your weekly schedule to you ensure exercising at least twice weekly. We recommend a combination of cardio training and strength exercise. Read more about exercise and male fertility on our blog.


Fast Food
Processed foods damage the health of sperm-producing cells and cause oxidative stress, which lead to poorer sperm quality. Heavy consumption of junk food (every week) can increase the likelihood of infertility since men who consume vast amounts of unhealthy food are at risk of having poor sperm quality. Besides harming your fertility, junk food enlarges your waistline, harms your cardiovascular system, kidneys, and more.

Eating more fruit and vegetables can increase your sperm concentration and motility. It’s important that you consume a healthy diet filled with antioxidants and that you eat vegetables every day. Foods such as apricots and red bell peppers are high in vitamin A, which improves male fertility by nurturing healthier sperm. Men who are deficient in this vitamin tend to have slow and sluggish sperm.

Sugary snacks/beverages: several times a week Excessive consumption of high sugar items can lead to oxidative stress, which negatively impacts testosterone levels and sperm motility. Sugary snacks and beverages are also highly associated with obesity and low fertility.
CONCLUSION: To boost sperm quality, stay away from fast food, processed food, and sugary snacks or beverages. You need to implement a healthy prudent diet filled with necessary superfoods needed for good sperm production. Check out our guide to Male Fertility Superfoods. For personalized guidance and support on how you can start improving your sperm health, check out the Bootcamp.


Direct heat can inhibit optimal sperm production and cause Sperm DNA damage. Sperm cells like environments that are a couple of degrees lower than body temperature. Avoid overheating from warm blankets, seat warmers, heat from your laptop, hot showers, and saunas.

Cigarette smoking

The exposure to tobacco smoke has significant negative effects on semen quality. The damage of cigarettes and nicotine of course depends on how many cigarettes you smoke per day and for how long, but even low usage (up to 10 cigarettes / day) can inhibit healthy sperm production.  

CONCLUSION: Stay as far away from cigarette smoking as possible if you care about your general health and your fertility. Read more here.

Cell phone

When you have your cell phone in your front pocket, your testicles are exposed to electromagnetic radiation, which studies have shown to damage the sperm cells. Put your phone in the back pocket of your pants or in your jacket pocket.


There is a clear association between obesity and reduced sperm quality. At least part of the reason for this is that obese men may have abnormal reproductive hormonal profiles, which can impair sperm production and lead to infertility. 

A BMI higher than 30 can lead to several processes in the body (overheating, increase in oxidative stress in the testes, sperm DNA damage, erectile dysfunction) that can have a negative impact on male fertility. This can result in problems when trying to conceive.  

CONCLUSION: BMI is one of the risk factors that influence semen quality and, for example, sperm motility.  


A beer or glass of wine now and then do not really harm sperm quality. But excess alcohol drinking (more than 20 units per week) can reduce the production of normally formed sperm needed for a successful pregnancy.

CONCLUSION: If you want to stay safe, stay under 14 units of alcohol per week. For more information on how alcohol can affect male fertility, take a look at our blog: “Alcohol and Sperm Quality”.


Studies show that women younger than 35 and men younger than 40 have a better chance of getting pregnant. Men can produce sperm cells almost through their entire life, but the sperm cell DNA is more fragile and prone to damage after the age of 40.

As men age, their testes tend to get smaller and softer resulting in a decline in sperm quality and production. These changes are partly because of an age-related decrease in testosterone level, which plays a very important role in sperm

production. Higher male age (>40 years) is not only associated with a decline in sperm production but also with increased sperm DNA fragmentation and worsened morphology (shape) and motility (movement). These negative effects make the sperm cells less qualified for egg fertilization.

CONCLUSION: with an age under 40, you shouldn’t have to worry much about age as a factor in itself. However, studies have shown a slow decline after the age of 30-35 years

and if you are above 40 years of age, your sperm quality can be affected due to increased sperm DNA damage resulting in a decrease of sperm motility and concentration. Remember that you cannot evaluate the quality of a sperm sample by just looking at it – this requires a sperm analysis.
