New technology from the University of Virginia in the US has made it possible for men to check their fertility levels in the comfort and privacy of their own homes.
“One of the impediments to male fertility testing is that men are reluctant to go to the doctor or to deal with the question of their fertility,” says Professor John Herr, who created the test.
Although male fertility is an issue for 40 per cent of infertile couples, testing mainly focuses on women, says Professor Herr.
The new test, called SpermCheck Fertility, gives results in 10 minutes with 95 per cent accuracy, and is more affordable and private than visiting a fertility clinic.
