SpermCheck® Fertility, the Only FDA Approved At-Home Screening Test for Men to Determine Normal or Low Sperm Count, Now Available to Couples Planning or Struggling to Conceive
Date:2/21/2012

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, approximately 7 million couples will experience conception issues. A key first step, before the female goes through a battery of tests, is to analyze the male's sperm count, yet it is estimated that only 20% of men in couples struggling to conceive have this test early on or at all.  Enter SpermCheck® Fertility (www.spermcheck.com), the only FDA approved at-home screening test for men to determine normal or low sperm count with 98% accuracy, in 10 minutes and without having to go to a physician or lab to provide a semen sample. 

"SpermCheck Fertility is non-invasive and can help couples eliminate or identify one potential stumbling block to conception," explains Ray Lopez, CEO of SpermCheck®, which also manufacturers a home test for post-vasectomy screening.

"Men have historically avoided this type of semen analysis because it can be embarrassing and inconvenient for them to go to a physician or lab for this type of test, yet approximately 50% of all infertility problems are directly attributed to the male, and most of them are mainly due to low sperm count," explains Lopez. "With such high incidence of fertility issues, coupled with low incidence of male testing, we saw a great opportunity to provide couples with an at-home test that can provide information that is crucial for conception preparation, yet takes the stigma out of the test, since it is done in the privacy of their own home." 

In just 10 minutes, SpermCheck® Fertility indicates if sperm count is within "normal" range (at or above 20 million sperm per milliliter, which is the accepted standard for normal sperm count) or low, which would indicate that a visit to the physician for further analysis of the man is in order.

"It's more than 98% accurate – as reliable as a lab test –
