    I Tested My Sperm Using Only My Phone And My Buddies Can Swim

    I learned to start thinking things through more often.

    Hey, what's up, hello! I'm Anthony, and I happen to be the only man on the fabulous BuzzFeed Health team. (Oh, and that's my dog.)

    So you might call it fate when, one day in March, my team got a promotional email for the Yo Sperm Testing Kit.

    But the email thread was lit.

    I didn't actually realize what I was getting myself into until a week later.

    The Yo Sperm Test is meant to be used at home, so that's where we planned to do it.

    Before I got started, I decided to speak with Dr. Brian Levine of the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine to get an idea of what I should be looking for.

    I asked Levine to explain what the heck it will all mean.

    Armed with this male fertility knowledge, I was ready to take the test. And I gotta say, I was looking forward to it.

    The makers of the Yo kit advertise that it only takes three minutes to complete the test. But that doesn't include prepping the sperm.

    While I waited 10 minutes for the sperm to ~liquefy~, I took a pretty fun quiz.

    Three minutes later, my results were in, and as I had hoped, my sperm were most likely healthy!

    It was also really cool to see my sperm on the screen.

    By the end of it all, I definitely had mixed feelings.

    My awkward little experiment got everyone talking about my sperm, their sperm, and just sperm in general. That's a win, right? Here's the full video if you wanna see how it all went down.
