ADVANCED SCIENCE = CLEAR DIRECTION
Fertility isn’t about being “fertile” or “infertile.” It’s dynamic and can be influenced by any number of male or female factors. That’s why Cap-Score measures a man’s scale of fertility, providing a quantified ranking or score. Your doctor may even retest your score from time to time.
Cap-Score gives you and your doctor critical missing information to analyze alongside semen analysis and a medical work-up of both you and your partner. With a more complete picture of your fertility, your doctor can make personalized recommendations to help you reach pregnancy faster.
Your Cap-Score can help your doctor determine what level of fertility assistance or intervention is necessary and inform diet, exercise or other lifestyle changes. If your Cap-Score is normal, there may be other factors impacting your ability to become pregnant. Though, a low Cap-Score does NOT mean that you can’t become a dad. Your doctor may be able to help improve your score.
Cap-Score detects and analyzes localization patterns using fluorescent microscopy to distinguish fertile from infertile sperm cells.
Unlike most sperm analysis, Cap-Score quantifies the percentage of sperm able to “capacitate” and successfully fertilize an egg.
SO, WHAT IS CAPACITATION?
Capacitation is the transformation sperm must undergo to generate a pregnancy. Once inside the female reproductive tract, sperm must:
Start a hyperactivated swimming pattern to move through the Fallopian tube
Release enzymes to pass through the external covering of the egg
CAP-SCORE VS. SEMEN ANALYSIS
People assume that semen analysis measures – volume, concentration, motility – can predict their chances of generating a pregnancy, but that’s not the case. Clinical studies show Cap-Score is the only reliable predictor of a man’s ability to generate a pregnancy.
A man’s Cap-Score is examined against proprietary clinical research to calculate an accurate Probability of Generating a Pregnancy (PGP) within three attempts.
There is no correlation between semen analysis and Cap-Score: a man with healthy semen analysis measures can still have a low Cap-Score and PGP, and vice-versa.
