There have been a number of apps developed over the past few years to help women track their cycles as part of an effort to try to conceive, but now, there’s an app made just for men on the journey to fatherhood.
Research has shown that sperm count can vary from day to day and year to year. Time between ejaculations, how much your drank last night and whether or not you’ve had a cold recently can all impact your sperm. When you are trying to conceive, sperm matter. Studies have also shown that men with higher sperm counts and better, stronger swimmers are more likely to conceive quickly. There are a lot of things that men can do to boost their swim team. There are also lots of things men do that can tank their counts.
A new app, does a great job explaining all the factors that can impact sperm and providing clear advice to guys who are hoping to boost their sperm counts. It also lists out options for getting sperm tested and creates a personalized report that explains semen analysis results.
The app is divided into three main tabs. The first tab is a 10 minute questionnaire that covers a wide range of questions about your lifestyle. The lifestyle questions are divided into six categories: wellness, diet, exercise, stress, heat and toxins. Each category is scored based on responses and gives you a red, yellow or green light that lets you know how you are doing. It also give you specific tips for how to improve and get your sperm into tip-top shape.
The second tab is a place to track your sperm count. Users are able to enter results from a recent semen analysis and get feedback of how their sperm stack up against a large population of recent fathers. It also writes up a comprehensive report breaking down each parameter measured during a semen analysis including count, motility, morphology, semen volume, pH, and liquefaction explaining what it means, why it is important and how you are doing. It does a really god job of clarifying semen analysis results and helping couples know what the best next step to take is.
The last tab is Learn. This tab provides more detailed information on topics related to male fertility and is full of great, easy to digest information about health, sperm and sperm health.
The company is working on a lot of great features that should roll out over the next few months including population statistics, data visualization and graphing tools, fertility challenges and most exciting of all, a companion home tracking kit that allows men to measure sperm count in the privacy of their homes.
