MANday: What is Your Sperm Count?

If your answer is “I don’t know” or “I am not sure”, welcome to the group. I would say based on my clinical experience, 9 out of 10 guys have no idea what their current fertility status is. The ones that do know their sperm count were either instructed by their significant other to get evaluated or are currently struggling with infertility.

When family planning begins, women are usually the first ones, sometimes the only ones, who obtain a fertility evaluation. In a recent article that studied the gender differences in the experience of infertility, mainly women attempted to talk openly about the problem of infertility while men were more restrained in this respect (Nagorska, Bartosciewicz, Obrzut, & Darmochwal-Kolarz, 2019). Infertility is a problem for TWO people and the background is multifactorial and not always easy to determine.

If fertility or having kids is still an option, The Y Factor strongly encourages you to obtain a male fertility evaluation. This also applies to men who conceived previously because a history of conceiving a child does not guarantee future fertility.

Here are a couple of real-life patient scenarios where The Y Factor’s fertility evaluation identified unknown male fertility problems:

  1. Male in his early 20s who was not actively trying to conceive but wanted to determine his current fertility status. We identified that his sperm count was almost zero and the early identification of this problem assures that once he is ready to conceive that he will be ready and optimized.
  2. Male in his 30s who conceived a child in his early 20s. The couple has been trying to conceive for over one year. His fertility evaluation also showed significant male fertility problems. The sperm count was so low that his history of conception was simply luck. The Y Factor was able to maximize his fertility and help the couple conceive.

In summary, don’t assume your fertility, confirm it! Schedule your male fertility evaluation with The Y Factor now.
