    Are you able to see the sperm with a saliva scope like a Maybe baby?
    My friend tried but couldnt see anything, but i tried and i could swear i saw some little dots moving around all over the place!
    Wondering if anyone else has tried it and what they saw
    I was reading about this today, and a maybe baby microscope has a 60x lens, but to see sperm you need at least a 400x lens. I have heard of women seeing moving dots using maybe baby but I'm a bit torn as to if this would even be possible on a 60x magnifying lens.

    Hmmm, yeh, maybe what i "saw" was just little lliquidy bubbles or something! apparently my friend spent agessss looking but saw nothing...and he does have healthy sperm, they just fell PG first cycle!

    Gosh I am so relieved (kinda?) to hear that someone has healthy sperm but can't see anything with the maybe baby magnification.

    I'd read that quite a few people have been able to see their partners sperm using a maybe baby, so I thought it'd be fun to try it out. I can't even explain how I felt when I tried several times and couldn't see anything (and I work in a lab, I should know how to identify the contents of what's under magnification!).

    I am just really hoping his sperm analysis comes back normal, or even with SOME sperm so that at least we would have a chance at IVF. We've been TTC for 9 months and nothing as yet.. He readily agreed to a sperm check so that is really good.. He'll probably do that next week, as it's BD-ing time this week, so I figured we'd try and use what's there (if there IS something there )

    I am quite overweight and my husband does have fairly small testicles so this is also worrying me.. But at least I have a glimmer of hope that their might be sperm there.. Thank you for posting that despite not seeing sperm on a maybe baby lens that pregnancy was possible!
