Your Exact sperm DNA test results provide important information about your reproductive health which can help you make informed decisions about lifestyle changes or treatments to improve your fertility.
Exact tests measure sperm DNA fragmentation (damage) which could be a significant factor affecting your fertility.
It is important to understand:
• Low sperm DNA fragmentation means that the quality of the sperm is good or ‘healthy’.
• High sperm DNA fragmentation means the quality of sperm is poor or ‘unhealthy’.
The Exact test result shows three different indicators of DNA fragmentation compared against a fertile reference range:
Average Sperm DNA Fragmentation
Average Sperm DNA Fragmentation is the average percentage of DNA fragmentation per sperm in the semen sample.
If your result falls within 0 – 31%, you are within the fertile range. If your result falls between 31 – 100%, you are outside of the fertile range and have an increased risk of infertility.
Your healthy sperm result shows the percentage of sperm with low DNA fragmentation in the semen sample.
If your percentage is between 58-100%, you are within the fertile range
