Infertility can be a tough issue to navigate, not only is it frustrating but it can be quite disempowering. If you and your partner are having trouble conceiving there are some preliminary things you can do to check that things are operating as they should be.
Babystart offers some fantastic options for fertility testing for both men and women, that can all be done in the privacy of your own home.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that for a man to be fertile, as a minimum, he needs to produce 15 million sperm per mL of semen. For the everyday couple who are going about their business and trying to conceive, it’s not possible to know if the male is producing this amount of sperm. The Babystart Sperm Test uses WHO’s measurement to help determine if things are on track.
While there are other factors that contribute to male infertility, sperm count is considered to be the most critical factor, so being able to rule this out helps couples seek the right intervention in their family planning.
Benefits of the Babystart Sperm Test include:
- Determines if the male sperm count is greater or less than WHO’s guidelines for fertility
- Can be used in the privacy of your own home
- It is 97% accurate
- Easy to use and delivers results within minutes
- Contains two tests for further accuracy and reassurance.
The sperm test is extremely helpful as a first point of investigation, but it is important to remain in consultation with your doctor when making any health related decisions about your fertility.
