It’s not unusual for couples to experience problems when trying to conceive. Some of these issues could be attributed to abnormal sperm quality. Thanks to patented technology, SwimCount’s simple home test kit lets you measure sperm quality within 30 minutes – all in the privacy of your own home.
Fertility clinics estimate in 40-50% of all couples presented to them, there is a male factor.
Forty percent of conception issues are due to male fertility issues. Poor sperm quality is a key factor in why many couples experience problems when trying to conceive. It can be inconvenient and embarassing to visit a hospital or fertility clinic and screening the male is too often left late in the journey.
SwimCount is the first home test which allows you to get a reliable answer on your chance of conceiving by measuring sperm cells' ability to swim – a key factor in achieving pregnancy.
Our goal has never been to replace a full evaluation that has to be performed by fertility professionals so any abnormal result will have to be further analysed by a professional. SwimCount can enable you to get an easy and reliable answer early in your family planning journey.
There are several changes that both males and females can make that are proven to influence or enhance your chances of getting pregnant. Click here to view our tips and advice checklist.Buy online
It’s simple and takes only 30 minutes to receive results!
SwimCount measures the concentration of sperm that can swim (known as motile sperm).
Simply add the sperm sample to the device and within 30 minutes the colour indicates whether the motile sperm quantity is above or below the WHO threshold for normal. SwimCount provides 98% accuracy when comparing the results to microscopy validated against WHO GOLD standard (2010). If the test shows your motile sperm concentration is below the cut-off level for normal sperm quality, you should consult your doctor for further fertility testing.
