How does semen quality and chance of reaching pregnancy correlate?
We have designed a Semen Quality Score system for you to get an idea about the quality of your sperm and your chances of reaching pregnancy. Semen quality is indicative of a male’s ability to reproduce (fecundity).
A Danish study showed that the probability of conception increased with sperm concentration (40M/mL). They studied 430 “first pregnancy planning couples”  to establish sperm quality affects the chances of pregnancy. In another study they used computer-assisted sperm analysis, the amount of motile sperm was found to be associated with the cumulative probability of pregnancy – figure 1 .

After carrying out scientific research in collaborating with fertility specialists, we believe the best way to assess a man’s fertility potential is through his Total Motile Sperm Count (TMSC).
We focus mainly on what the device can measure and how it relates to time to pregnancy. In our test, we evaluate your Semen Volume, Sperm Concentration and Sperm Motility.
Knowing these parameters, we calculate the TMSC to categorize it as demonstrated below:
The TMSC indicates how big your chance of pregnancy is per cycle. As defined below:
A prerequisite for the above percentages of pregnancy is that you have intercourse with your partner on the days when she has her ovulation (fertile window) , and provided she has a regular menstruation cycle.
If this is not the case, your partner should consult a medical doctor for examination and obtain regular menstruation while you improve or maintain your semen quality. If you or your partner has any medical issues, we suggest seeking a medical doctor prior to “project baby-making” since it could reduce your chances of pregnancy.
For a sperm cell to properly reach the female egg and fertilize it, it needs more functions than what we measure. Go to “The Journey of Sperm” to read more about the specific functions.
