It is currently estimated that worldwide infertility affects 45 million couples. About 50 percent of these cases are attributable to the male partner. In the INDIA, approximately 1 in 6 couples cannot conceive and a half of these cases are attributed to male infertility.
The World Health Organization (WHO) define normal sperm concentration as higher than 15 million sperm per millilitres, and normal motility – or the ability of the sperm to move – as more than 40 percent.
Current infertility diagnosing practices are expensive and can only be carried out in a clinic or hospital. India IVF Fertility has launched a new, inexpensive, and simple tool for diagnosing male infertility. The new device, is smartphone-operated and can be used from home. Using motility and sperm concentration criteria, the new device analyses and measures semen quality, ultimately identifying infertility with a degree of 98 percent accuracy.
How the device works
The sperm analyzer is made of an optical attachment that connects to both a smartphone and a device onto which users can load a sample of their semen. The semen sample device is disposable and uses a microchip with a capillary tip. Users are guided by the app through each stage of the testing process. This test is low-cost, quantitative, highly accurate and can analyze a video of an undiluted, unwashed semen sample in less than five seconds.”
Why Test Your Sperm At Home?
You can Learn where you stand privately since Sperm are also a great indicator of overall health and wellness. “Delivering” a sperm sample at the doctor’s office is nerve-wracking and awkward. You can get the info you need in the comfort of your home. Monitoring your SPERM SCORE over time can provide you with important feedback about your health and/or the impact of lifestyle changes.
What does Home Sperm Test report
In cases of infertility, the man is a contributing factor in approximately 50% of cases. A semen analysis is conducted to test a man’s sperm count (concentration), moving sperm (motility), normally shaped sperm (morphology), and other parameters. One of the most important factors in achieving a pregnancy is the number of motile sperm in the sample. If the sperm cannot swim to the egg, natural pregnancy is not possible. The Home Sperm Test analyses your motile sperm concentration (how many are moving) and sperm quality (Sperm Score) and compares your results to laboratory standards and to other men who have fathered children. You will also receive a video recording of your sample as part of the sperm Test. Test results are 97% accurate, FDA-cleared and extensively tested.
Is there a home sperm test that can tell me whether I’m fertile or not?
Home sperm tests require ejaculation into a collection cup. While procedures vary for transferring semen and completing the test, results are typically available within a few minutes. The tests work by detecting a protein found only in sperm. If a home sperm test indicates that your sperm concentration is low (negative), you'll likely want to consult a doctor for a complete fertility evaluation. A positive test result indicates that your sperm concentration is considered normal.
