A sperm healthy lifestyle (see discussion thread "Sperm Healthy Lifestyle Guidelines") will help optimize sperm production and quality of the sperm you are producing. To check a sperm count and quality of that sperm you will have to get a semen analysis done at your local lab. There is a home sperm count test but this will not give you much details besides if you fall over a certain number of motile sperm. For the price of the home test I would take that money and put it towards an official test done at a laboratory so you can get a complete report will full details on things like count, motility, forward progression and morphology (normal forms).
