Question #1: Do you have a known issue with low sperm count?
If No: You indicate that you do not have a known issue with low sperm count.
I'm Not Sure: If you don't know whether low sperm count may be an issue for you, we recommend the SpermCheck Fertility, at-home test. It is a simple, affordable test that allows you to confirm if you have a normal sperm count in the privacy of your own home.
If Yes: You indicate that you have a known issue with low sperm count. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines a "low sperm count" as one containing fewer than 20 million sperm per milliliter of ejaculate. Having a low sperm count negatively impacts your ability to father a child.
Question #2: Do you have a known issue with low sperm motility?
If No: You indicate that you do not have a known issue with low sperm motility.
If Yes: You indicate that have a known issue with low sperm motility. Sperm motility is a critical factor in male fertility; in order to reach the egg, sperm must be able to swim with a healthy forward motion. Having poor sperm motility negatively impacts a couple's chances of achieving pregnancy.
Question #3: Do you have a known issue with sperm morphology?
If No: You indicate that you do not have a known issue with sperm morphology.
If Yes: You indicate that you have a known issue with sperm morphology. Sperm morphology (the size and shape of sperm) is a key factor in determining the quality of sperm. A "normal" sperm has an oval head and long tail, while abnormal sperm may have defects associated with the head, tail, or both. Having a high percentage of abnormally shaped sperm may affect the sperm's ability to reach and fertilize the egg.
Product recommendations: FertilAid for Men
Question #4: Are you unaware of any male fertility issues that pertain to you?
If No: You indicate that you are indeed aware of male fertility issues that pertain to you. We recommend FertilAid for Men, as well as CountBoost and/or MotilityBoost depending upon the nature of the issue.
If Yes: It is estimated that one third of all infertility cases are due to male factor issues solely, while another third can be attributed to a combination of male-female factors. Despite this fact, most men are not aware if they have fertility issues pertaining to sperm count, motility, or morphology.
Even if you have not been diagnosed with a sperm-related issue, it is recommended that you take a comprehensive multivitamin while trying to conceive that contains specific antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids that have been scientifically demonstrated to benefit overall sperm health.
At-home sperm tests are available to screen for low sperm count, a leading cause of male factor infertility. If you have been trying to conceive for an extended period of time unsuccessfully, you may also consider visiting a doctor to have a semen analysis conducted.
