Amazing! Sperm survival!


I just had to post this because I thought it was absolutely amazing. I decided to do my own test on how well sperm survives and went out and got a TOY microscope that goes up to 400x zoom. I planned to use it the next time I have a specimen from my donor but thought "what the heck" and decided to take a look at the sperm left in the tip of the syringe from last night. LOW AND BEHOLD THE SWIMMERS ARE STILL KICKING AND IT HAS BEEN OVER 12 HOURS! AMAZING. I am so amazed. My bedroom was around 70 degrees and it was on the FLOOR all night. I can't believe they are still alive and swimming like crazy, and there was A TON in the little drop that I got. I am very excited to see this!!! Coolest thing I have ever seen!

No it was like $60, I got the better of the 2 at Toys R Us!!!!! I thought I'd be looking at pretty much nothing identifiable, put it on the slide and stuck it in my cheap little plastic microscope and looked and was in SHOCK. I had to steady myself because I thought it was just me shaking or something. Sat down and looked again and by god if there wasn't some seriously crazy action going on!!! SO HAPPY my donor has amazingly strong swimmers!!!!! Do it, girls! It was SO COOL!!!!!!! I read online you need at least 400x zoom and that's what I got with this thing! I think it goes up to 800x, I should have tried that to see it even better. I will next time. I even got cell phone VIDEO LOL!!! Crappy video but you absolutely can see the crazy swimming going on! SOOOOOO COOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Well then I would say he has super sperm , usually sperm starts dying off within minutes of hitting air and when its not kept at body temperature.
