Most couples who are trying to conceive are probably familiar with the term ‘sperm count’, which deals with the quantity of sperm. The SpermComet test identifies DNA damage in sperm. Damage to sperm DNA reduces the chance of a pregnancy and a healthy baby.

The SpermComet test provides couples with more information about their fertility, allowing them to decide on the pathway which is best for them. By looking at male fertility, the SpermComet test can reduce the loss of valuable time and financial costs, and not least, emotional headache, which can be hardest of all.

Checking your sperm for DNA damage before you start a family gives you the chance to take control and, if necessary to change your lifestyle to improve your chances of becoming a Dad. The SpermComet is a specialised test carried out at dedicated labs with specially trained staff. SpermComet works with partner clinics to help couples who are experiencing fertility problems.

Did You Know?

One in six couples has difficulty having a baby: in 40 per cent of these cases, the difficulty is associated with the man.
Sperm DNA is one of the most important factors when it comes to getting pregnant.
Damage to sperm DNA (sperm DNA fragmentation) affects every fertility checkpoint and can increase the risk of miscarriage.

Sperm quality can be seriously affected by things like stress, smoking, alcohol, recreational drugs, obesity and other avoidable lifestyle factors.

When it comes to sperm quality, conventional semen analysis tells us little. The SpermComet® is a much more sensitive male fertility test that can measure DNA damage in individual sperm.

Did You Know?

Even healthy sperm have some DNA damage, but it’s the amount of damage that matters.
Checking your sperm for damage before you start a family gives you the chance to take control and change your lifestyle to improve your sperm quality, if you have damage.
