(Newser) – If you've ever questioned your sperm count but weren't thrilled with the idea of dropping by a clinic, worry no longer: For the first time, you can get an FDA-approved home test.

"Sure, it's funny to talk about, but it could also truly change the way couples (and singles) approach conception," writes Brent Rose at Gizmodo. While nearly half of conception problems are on the male side, men are far more reluctant to head to a clinic for a checkup, he notes.
