SpermCheck Fertility, at-home sperm count test


Pregnancy can become an obsession. According to a survey for SpermCheck Fertility, 42% of those who got pregnant said they became obsessed with getting pregnant once they started trying. That was for women; only 10% said their partner shared their obsession.

It’s projected that approximately 7 million couples will experience conception difficulties. About 50% of those difficulties will be attributed to the male, specifically to low sperm count, according to John C. Herr, PhD, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Research in Contraceptive and Reproductive Health.

In spite of that, women are the ones who take action. While analyzing the male’s sperm count is one of the first tests of a fertility specialist, only 17% ever get tested for their sperm count. And just 23% of the women surveyed who were pregnant said their partner did everything he could to get himself healthy prior to conception. Clearly, the burden has been on women to make it happen. But maybe that can change.

“While there is absolutely nothing to be self-conscious about, many men are often reluctant or embarrassed to go to their healthcare provider to take a sperm count test, even if it means that their partner might take it upon herself to start having herself tested and in some cases begin taking fertility treatments. Now, with SpermCheck Fertility, a new and easy, 10-minute, over-the-counter, FDA-approved, at-home sperm count screening test that men can take in the privacy of their home, they can find out if their sperm count is normal or low and have an accurate answer,” said Pamela Madsen, fertility educator, advocate and founder of the American Fertility Association.

If you are experiencing some difficulty with becoming pregnant, ask your doctor about SpermCheck Fertilty. It could be an inexpensive and easy way to get at least one question answered.
