Having trouble getting pregnant? You aren't the only one.
In fact, 60% of the time,
males are the cause of infertility challenges.
Wouldn't it be helpful to know
you aren't the Male Factor?
Innovative Reproductive Solutions President Stephanie Berman
introduces herself and the new product, The Male Factor Test
The Male Factor is an advanced and intricate panel of semen analysis tests that can be done in the privacy of your own home. These tests are designed to help diagnose and assist in male infertility with such issues as DNA packaging, toxicant exposure, and oxidative stress damage that can all result in pregnancy loss.
The accuracy, reproducibility, and sensitivity of the tests provide unmatched results and help in identifying up to 47% of males with male factor issues that may be contributing to the couples’ infertility.
This is NOT your average semen analysis test. Although basic semen analysis provides information such as sperm count, size and shape, it does little to indicate a sperm's capability of delivering genetic material to the egg, facilitate development, and result in a live birth outcome. The Male Factor will fast-track you to the most appropriate Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) and expedite successful live birth.
What does this mean for infertile couples? We’ve all heard stories of the cost and heartache when couples are unable to get pregnant, even worse when prospective moms and dads to be are experiencing the emotional roller coaster of recurrent miscarriages. Much of this pain can be avoided; early identification of male-factor infertility eliminates medical procedures that are likely to fail. The Male Factor™ helps physicians determine the right treatment path from the first visit.
Patients benefit from this test panel by increasing male factor issue identification early in the process and therefore, couples greatly improve their odds of successful live birth outcomes, faster and at lower cost.
The Sperm DNA Decondensation (SDD) and Sperm DNA Accelerated Decondensation (SDAD) tests in part and in combination, give us a more thorough picture of sperm function and how to adapt the proper treatment path.
If you have any of the following, you are a candidate for the SDD/SDAD test:
Recurrent pregnancy loss
Normal appearing sperm but failure to achieve and/or maintain pregnancy
Poor fertilization during IVF or IUI cycles
Poor embryo quality during IVF or ICSI cycles
