Tracking Sperm? There’s an app for that


Trak: Sperm Health & Fertility AppThere 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.

      Its mostly ok. It’s a little lower than I would like to see and it may take some extra months to get pregnant but my guess is that you should be able to.

      Here’s a list of sperm friendly habits that could help boost things a little and increase your chances. And… if you haven’t downloaded the app in this article. I would recommend it. It could also help a lot.

        Sara SDx June 19, 2018 at 5:37 pm

        You don’t need medicine, but you should consider doing things to be healthy — eat lots of fruits and vegetables, get enough sleep at night, lower your stress (if it is a problem), make sure you have a healthy weight, exercise regularly.

        You may also want to consider for your wife / partner to go to her doctor if you have been trying for a long time.

    • Sara SDx
      Sara SDx April 24, 2018 at 3:25 pm

      I would recommend going to a urologist for a full examination and re-testing to confirm the results.
      You can become a father with this result, but you will need fertility treatments to help.
      You may be able to boost your count with the help of a urologist which could allow you to conceive naturally.

      Cigarettes may be impacting your sperm ability to swim. You should stop smoking to improve your sperm.
      If you stop smoking, it might also improve your erection so that you wouldn’t need pills for sex.

      This is a borderline low result. Sperm count and rapid linear progression are lower than I like to see. Are you having trouble conceiving?
      Have you taken this health assessment to see if you have any risk factors?

    Does hpv cause problems getting a woman pregnant?

    • Sara SDx
      Sara SDx February 28, 2018 at 7:49 pm

      Not typically, but it does increase the risk of cervical cancer. You should discuss with doctor.

    Hi …
    Idid my iui today … aft post wash the sperm count is 11 million with 95 % motality …. but found too many dead sperm … vol is 1ml … any way to get pregnant …. plz explain … morphology is 1 % ….

    • Sara SDx
      Sara SDx November 21, 2017 at 2:24 pm

      There’s always a chance. The two week wait is SO hard. I hope you have positive news.

      Regarding the sperm. 1% normal morphology isn’t the best and could hurt your chances a little but the 11 million, high motile post wash sounds promising. Not sure what you mean by too many dead sperm if the post wash was 95% motile.

      Good luck. Let me know if you have other questions. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts while you wait…

    Do I stand a chance to father a child

    • Sara SDx
      Sara SDx September 18, 2017 at 2:18 pm

      This is a borderline result. It suggests that you should be able to father a child but it could take a long time.
      Taking effort to improve your health – eating better, avoiding alcohol, doing exercise, getting good sleep, avoiding heat can help improve.

      I would recommend downloading the app for more details on how to improve.

    Age can also play a role. The ability of sperm to move and the proportion of normal sperm tend to decrease with age, affecting a man’s fertility. Some research shows that it takes longer for men in their mid-30s and early 40s to achieve pregnancy than it does for younger men.
