How much semen you produce! Semen plays a crucial role in carrying sperm through the reproductive tract. Producing the right amount means giving sperm the best chance at reaching the egg for fertilization.
Total number of sperm in your sample. A healthy sperm count means you’re producing and ejaculating enough sperm. A higher number improves your chances of conception, naturally or via fertility treatments.
The ratio between semen and sperm. Sperm concentration is the number of sperm per milliliter of semen. This number helps us compare your sample to others.
How many of your sperm are moving? Motility is the percentage of your sperm that are moving properly; in order to fertilize an egg, your sperm must be “swimming.” Many at-home sperm count tests don’t include this essential metric, one of the most important factors in your fertility.
How many of your sperm are the proper size and shape? A sperm’s structure affects its ability to reach and fertilize an egg. Morphology is the percentage of sperm that are normally shaped; abnormalities may indicate poor sperm development or genetic issues. Fun fact: most sperm are abnormally shaped. Morphology as low as 4–14% is totally normal.
We freeze and thaw a small portion of your sample to assess if it’s a good candidate for cryopreservation (sperm freezing).
Legacy test and freezes more sperm than any other clinic in the United States. The semen analysis kit has been clinically validated, meaning that researchers have found that the results are comparable to the results of a conventional, in-clinic semen analysis. Legacy sperm testing is conducted in CLIA-certified labs by a team of highly-trained scientists, specialized in fertility and all results are reviewed by our medical staff.
Legacy offers more advanced male fertility testing options than any other at-home kit and many conventional clinics. In addition to testing volume, concentration, motility, motile sperm count, and morphology, our semen analysis includes a post-thaw analysis (a quick freeze-and-thaw of a small percentage of your sperm) to ensure your sample is viable for freezing.
