Test Your Sperm On An App For Your Smartphone
So you have been trying to make a baby for a while now, but it just has not happened yet. Your wife even bought an ovulation predictor kit. You also tried purchasing a sperm count kit–however, it is a product made only to count the sperm and not how well they move. Fortunately, there’s an FDA-approved test now that will allow you to use a smartphone app to not only count sperm but find out how well they swim.
The kit comes with a tool, an app and a mini-microscope “clip” that goes on the top your phone, permitting the device to use your phone’s light, recording capabilities and focus. The kit is very easy to use as you simply need to prepare the sample on a slide (like the one you did in biology class), stick it into the clip and after two minutes, you will see the actual movement of the sperm on your phone screen. In another minute or so, you will be getting the test results. While you wait, cheeky “spermi trivia” questions will pop up to help lighten up the mood. You don’t have to worry about missing out because the video and results will be recorded in the app. As for the accuracy level of the kit, CEO of Medical Electronic Systems, Marcia Deutch, said that extensive testing has been made for the last four years. Moreover, the technology can accurately read the sperm sample 99 percent of the time just as long you use it according to everything the instructions tell you. The result of the study made showed that the results the technology produce are more than 97 percent accurate.
Buyers will have to take note though that since the produce is sold over-the-counter, the test cannot reveal actual values, instead it gives a reading of “low” or “moderate/normal” based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for sperm motility and concentration. The test gives a report on the composite of these two parameters called “motile sperm concentration,” or the number of moving sperm.
A Quick Overlook of Technology – Your Cheatsheet
Just like any home test, users have to remember that the sperm count app is just the first step to figuring out if you have a fertility issue. In case the results show a low count, you will have to head to a fertility clinic to have another test done and see if the results match. There is one more thing that you need to check on too–morphology, which is how many normally shaped sperm there are. You will want a doctor to look at this aspect as well. Now, if you have already done all the home tests and they returned normal, see a doctor if you still have not conceived in one year, or six months if you are aged over 35.The Ultimate Guide to Applications
