Perceptions on Conception
Date:3/8/2012

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For many women, the decision to get pregnant can take on a life of its own. In fact, according to a survey conducted for SpermCheck® Fertility, 42% of those who conceived say they became obsessed with getting pregnant once they started trying. Yet just 10% say their partner shared this obsession.

And just 23% of the women surveyed in the SpermCheck survey who are currently pregnant or who have conceived a child said their partner did everything he could to get himself as healthy as possible before they started trying to conceive.

According to Pamela Madsen, a nationally recognized fertility educator, advocate and founder of the American Fertility Association, "While there is absolutely nothing to be self-conscious about, many men are often reluctant or embarrassed to go to their healthcare provider to take a sperm count test, even if it means that their partner might take it upon herself to start having herself tested and in some cases begin taking fertility treatments. Now, with SpermCheck® Fertility, a new and easy, 10-minute, over-the-counter, FDA-approved, at-home sperm count screening test that
