SWIMCOUNT - The Quality of Sperm In Western Men Decreases over The Past 40 Years
New study shows quality of men's sperm reduces.
The article on the study of temporal trends in sperm counts provides a systematic review and meta-regression analysis of recent trends in sperm count as measured by sperm concentration and total sperm count and their modification by fertility and spermatozoa. geographical group.
The study group analyzed the number of spermatozoa (both SC and TSC), but not motility and sperm morphology, as information on motility and morphology was rarely available in older studies. In addition, the recommended methods and criteria for assessing motility and morphology have changed considerably over time, making comparisons over time difficult.
Conclusion of the study.
In this comprehensive meta-analysis, the number of spermatozoa, whether measured by SC or TSC, decreased significantly among men in North America, Europe, and Australia between 1973 and 2011, with a decrease in 50 to 60% in unfertilized men. a "leveling" in recent years.
These findings strongly suggest a significant decline in male reproductive health, which has serious implications beyond fertility issues. Research on the causes and implications of this decline is urgent. Reference: Human Reproduction Update, pp. 1-14, 2017.

SWIMCOUNT Sperm quality test.
SwimCount measures the number of spermatozoa cells with progressive movement also called SPMS in the sperm sample, since PMSCs are the best predictor of male fertility (Tomlinson et al., 2013). A PMSC is the only spermatozoon capable of fertilizing an egg.
By measuring SPMS, SwimCount informs the man about the quality of his sperm, that is to say the QUALITATIVE NUMBER of his fertility potential. In addition, SwimCount indirectly and implicitly measures spermatozoa with a good morphology.
