SpermCheck® Vasectomy is the only test on the market cleared by the FDA for home use that provides evidence of a vasectomy’s success or failure. It is accurate, fast, and easy to use. Detailed instructions are included with each test kit (click here for SpermCheck® Vasectomy instructions). To ensure accurate test results, please read the test instructions thoroughly before performing the test.
A positive test result does not necessarily mean that your vasectomy failed, but does indicate that additional testing is needed. You should continue to use other birth control and talk to your doctor about what to do next. We suggest that you wait at least two weeks before testing with a new SpermCheck® Vasectomy Device.
A negative result indicates that your sperm count is extremely low, at or below a level shown by scientific studies to present very little risk of pregnancy.
If you do not see a control line (marked as “C” on the SpermCheck® Vasectomy Device) the test cannot be interpreted and you should test again with another SpermCheck® Vasectomy Device.
The SpermCheck® Vasectomy Kit contains everything you need to perform two SpermCheck® Vasectomy tests. You should follow your doctor’s instructions about how long to wait after your vasectomy before performing the tests.
The results of both tests should be negative. If they are not both negative then test again with another SpermCheck® Vasectomy Kit until you receive two consecutive negative results.
