Washington: Men could soon be able to test their sperm count from the comfort and privacy of their homes, all thanks to a new technology from the University of Virginia.Just 10 minutes and few drips of semen will offer men with a more accurate and affordable way to test their sperm count.
The test has more than 95 percent accuracy whether sperm concentration is in the normal range, (above 20 million sperm per millileter), subfertile range (between 2 million and 20 million), or if the subject may be infertile (less than 2 million). These ranges are in accordance with the World Health Organization``s guidelines for male fertility. Though the test makes it easier for men to begin investigating their fertility, it can only assess part of the problem.While sperm count is an issue in 89 percent of male infertility cases, other causes of infertility, such as sperm speed, motility and shape, cannot be measured by the test.
