Perceptions on Conception
Date:3/8/2012

men can take in the privacy of their home, they can find out if their sperm count is normal or low – and have an accurate answer, right then."

The SpermCheck survey found that 8 out of 10 women (83%) trying to or planning to conceive say their partner assumes he is fertile, and 43% say their partner would like to know for sure that his sperm count is normal. A much higher number, more than two thirds of women surveyed (67%) say they would like to know their partner's sperm count is normal when they start trying to get pregnant.

The following are highlights of this survey:

Fertility worries:

  • A little less than half (44%) of those trying/planning to conceive are worried that when they actually want to conceive, they won't be able to because they tried hard for years to avoid pregnancy.
  • More than half (59%) of those trying/planning to conceive say they won't tell people they are trying to get pregnant in case it doesn't happen.
  • Almost half (49%) of women who took longer than expected to conceive indicated their significant other was not eager to have his sperm count tested.
  • 23% of women who have conceived/trying to conceive would not seek advice or testing for their significant other if it was taking longer than expected to get pregnant.
  • More than a quarter (27%) of those trying/planning to conceive are embarrassed to discuss fertility with friends and family, and a similar number, 23%, say their partner is uncomfortable discussing male fertility issues.
  • Conception perceptions: How fertility and conceiving a child affect relationships: Perceptions before (trying/planning to get pregnant) and after having a child were quite different on this topic:
