Test Your Sperm On An App For Your Smartphone
Have you been trying to conceive for a while but has not just happened yet? Your wife even bought an ovulation predictor kit. And you may have already bought a sperm count kit but the ones available in the market right now only test how many sperm there are, and not how well they move. Fortunately, there’s an FDA-approved test now that will allow you to use a smartphone app to not only count sperm but find out how well they swim.
As to how this work, a product uses an app and mini-microscope “clip” that will be attached on the top your phone, letting your device access the phone’s light, focus and recording capabilities. Then you put a sample on a slide (similar to what you did in high school biology class), stick it into the clip, and wait for two minutes to show you the movement of the sperm on the phone screen. In another minute or so, you will be getting the test results. While waiting, you can entertain yourself by answering some cheeky “sperm trivia” to lighten the mood. You don’t have to worry about missing out because the video and results will be recorded in the app. To make this product accurate, extensive training for over four years have been made, as detailed by Marcia Deutsch, CEO of Medical Electronic Systems. Moreover, the technology can accurately read the sperm sample 99 percent of the time just as long you use it according to everything the instructions tell you. The result of the study made showed that the results the technology produce are more than 97 percent accurate.
Since the technology is an over-the-counter product, Deutsch said that the test will not give actual values but it will only indicate if it is “low” or “moderate/normal” based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for sperm motility (how well they move) and concentration (how many there are). The test reports a combination of the two parameters and it is called as the “motile sperm concentration,” or the number of moving sperm.
Learning The Secrets About Apps
Just like any home test, users have to remember that the sperm count app is just the first step to figuring out if you have a fertility issue. So if the results come back low, you will have to go the fertility clinic to have a test done and confirm the results. Aside from the motility and concentration though, you will need to go check out the morphology, which is how many normally shaped sperm there are. A doctor can help you on this. If you have not conceived still in one year even after normal results, best that you go see a doctor.A Quick Overlook of Technology – Your Cheatsheet
