A 'world first' men’s home sperm test has finally landed in Ireland!
For most men, having to attend a fertility clinic and being asked to produce a semen sample on the spot can be embarrassing and as a result, some choose to buy home test kits.
Until now, these self tests have only indicated the sperm count - ignoring the importance of sperm quality, which could mean that some men are falsely reassured that all is okay.
But IVF experts from Motility Count, Denmark, have developed a simple and reliable, home test kit called SwimCount that not only indicates the sperm count but also shows whether these sperm are good swimmers.
This has now been taken on in Ireland by the FertilityStore.ie “We became aware that there was a Danish biotech working on a new type of male fertility home test that would be complete in 2015.
“This is a truly innovative product in this sector so we are delighted to bring it to Ireland"
“The key benefit of SwimCount compared to other tests is that it provides a measure of motile sperm (good swimmers) rather than just a sperm count which can overestimate a man’s fertility and provide a false sense of reassurance that all is OK.”
SwimCount is now available here from FertilityStore.ie
