HOW MUCH SEMEN YOU PRODUCE
Semen plays a crucial role in carrying sperm through the reproductive tract. Producing the right amount means giving sperm the best chance at reaching the egg for fertilization.
TOTAL NUMBER OF SPERM IN YOUR SAMPLE
A healthy sperm count means you’re producing and ejaculating enough sperm. A higher number improves your chances of conception, naturally or via fertility treatments.
THE RATIO BETWEEN SEMEN AND SPERM
Sperm concentration is the number of sperm per milliliter of semen. This number helps us compare your sample to others.
HOW MANY OF YOUR SPERM ARE MOVING
Motility is the percentage of your sperm that are moving properly; in order to fertilize an egg, your sperm must be “swimming.” Many at-home sperm count tests don’t include this essential metric, one of the most important factors in your fertility.
HOW MANY OF YOUR SPERM ARE THE PROPER SIZE AND SHAPE
A sperm’s structure affects its ability to reach and fertilize an egg. Morphology is the percentage of sperm that are normally shaped; abnormalities may indicate poor sperm development or genetic issues. Fun fact: most sperm are abnormally shaped. Morphology as low as 4–14% is totally normal.
HOW MANY OF YOUR SPERM HAVE DAMAGED DNA
The integrity of the DNA in sperm is an important factor in your ability to create a healthy pregnancy. Age, illness, and lifestyle can cause damage to your sperm's DNA, called DNA fragementation. Unfortunately, DNA fragmentation is not tested as part of a typical semen analysis. Our kit is the only at-home test that includes DNA fragmentation anlaysis.
