HELPING MEN BECOME DADS

Ask your fertility clinic for an Exact® Sperm DNA Test

Accurate fertility tests for men. To make the most of every cycle, it’s important to understand the extent of sperm DNA damage before you embark on each cycle of fertility treatment. Exact tests can help predict the likelihood of treatment success, saving you the time, cost and emotional toll of repeated fertility treatment.

Your sperm DNA is your baby’s blueprint

DNA is what makes us who we are. Your sperm DNA carries a copy of the genes that you pass on to your baby. Not only do your genes pass on your characteristics, like eye colour or height, but they build our brains, determine our behaviour and our future health.

Sperm DNA can be damaged when sperm are being made; snapping some of the DNA strands. Men with high levels of damaged sperm DNA are less likely to get their partner pregnant and have double the risk of miscarriage. Even if your sperm count is normal, the sperm may not be of good quality. Sperm DNA damage can prevent you from having a baby.

Make every cycle count

Fertility treatment can be emotionally draining, time consuming and expensive.

If you are starting a cycle of treatment, it is vital you give yourself the best possible chance of making that cycle of treatment count. With every cycle of treatment comes the possibility of getting pregnant and having a baby, it is therefore important that men understand their levels of sperm DNA damage.

The quality of your sperm DNA will help fertility experts predict the fertility treatment with the highest likelihood of success for you, which means you could improve your chances of getting pregnant with fewer treatment cycles.

The power to improve the quality of your sperm DNA is in your hands. Ask your fertility clinic for an Exact test to understand your sperm DNA results and give you the highest chance of success.
