A Positive Test Result

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 Test Result

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.

An Invalid Test Result

invalid-testIf 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.
