FAQ

What is The Cap-Score Sperm Test?

About The Cap-Score Sperm Test

The Cap-Score sperm test is a revolutionary, male fertility test developed by leading fertility scientists and physicians. The Cap-Score sperm test is the only male fertility test that correlates with the likelihood of achieving a pregnancy. The Cap-Score sperm test was previously only available in a doctors' office. Now you can get your Cap-Score sperm test from the comfort and privacy of your home with our at-home Cap-Score semen analysis kit.

Who should take the Cap-Score Sperm Test?

The Cap-Score sperm test can be a useful tool for anyone that has questions about their fertility. A Cap-Score sperm test is also useful for testing fertility in men who have had vasectomy reversals and varicocele procedures.

How is Cap-Score different from semen analysis?

Traditional semen analysis alone is just a start. Sperm count, volume, shape and motility are all fertility factors, but they only tell part of the story. The Cap-Score sperm test is a clinically-proven male fertility test that measures sperm's capacity to fertilize an egg. It is a test that measures sperm function.

What does my Cap-Score measure?

Unlike other male fertility tests, the Cap-Score sperm test quantifies the percentage of sperm able to "capacitate" and successfully fertilize an egg. Capacitation is the transformation sperm must undergo before it enters the egg.
