Sperm (SP-10)

What factors can affect sperm concentration?

Factors that can affect sperm concentration include lifestyle choices, such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, exposure to environmental toxins, certain medical conditions (like varicoceles or hormonal imbalances), and genetic factors.

When should the SP-10 male fertility test be used?

It can be used as an aid to the diagnosis of male infertility, and provide guidance for couples who want to have children.

How does the SP-10 male fertility test work?

SP-10 is a protein that is specific to male germ cells and is not found in other cells. The SP-10 male fertility test is highly specific for sperm and is now used to estimate sperm concentration in semen as an aid in determining causes of infertility. The SP-10 rapid test detects SP-10 and gives a positive result when the sperm concentration is above 15 million/ml in the semen, which is the internationally acceptable minimum level of sperm for normal fertility.

Could an abnormal result mean that the subject is unable to have children?

The sperm concentration is one of several sperm analysis tests. There are other factors that should be considered, such as mobility. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you seek the advice of a specialist if you receive an abnormal result.
