Sperm are produced in the testicles through a three step process called Spermatogenesis. During the final stage a lot of changes take place including the packaging of DNA into the sperm head and the formation of the sperm tail which propels the sperm cell towards the egg.
The DNAffirm at Home Male Fertility/Infertility Test works by staining the DNA component of cells in the sperm sample to establish their concentration by producing a colour in a pre-treated sample well. The intensity of this colour is compared to the Viaguard colour reference chart and instantly indicates whether the subject's sperm count falls in the fertile or infertile range.
Sperm count is one of the principal factors used to diagnosis male infertility. While there may be a range of other factors i.e. deformed or poorly mobile sperm, psychological and medical conditions that influence fertility, sperm count is the primary area requiring evaluation.
One in six couples trying to conceive a baby is affected by infertility and in about half of these cases male infertility is the problem.
A variety of factors including a particular protein and genetic influences may contribute to reduced sperm count and infertility. Life style and environmental factors also have impacts.
