All too often, patients go through months – if not years – of timed intercourse, failed rounds of IUI, only to eventually move onto IVF.
The goal of SpermQT is to get you pregnant faster by helping to identify the path to pregnancy that is most likely to succeed.
SpermQT – A Different Kind of Sperm Test
The standard semen analysis looks at sperm swimming under a microscope. But sperm are complex and require more than a surface-level view. SpermQT looks inside the head of the sperm, examining the internal function, more specifically the gene function of sperm.
AT A GLANCE
For patients with a “Poor” SpermQT result
Timed intercourse and IUI (intrauterine insemination) are statistically not the best options for those with a Poor SpermQT result. Studies show that IVF with ICSI* is most likely to lead to a successful pregnancy. In fact, there is no statistical difference in pregnancy rates when doing ICSI between Poor and Excellent SpermQT results.
Who is SpermQT for?
SpermQT is for any couple who is trying to conceive and wants to know more about the male partner’s sperm health.
Before Trying to Conceive
SpermQT can help evaluate your reproductive health prior to starting your journey to conceive.
Early in the Journey
SpermQT can guide couples to treatment options that are most likely to work.
Later in the Journey
SpermQT can help to rule out certain male factors in couples with unexplained infertility.

Path SpermQT is Changing the Conversation
“A lot of infertility goes undiagnosed because men go undiagnosed. And when men go undiagnosed, women go through procedures that will not work.” -Dr. Kristin Brogaard, Chief Scientific Officer, Path Fertility
Parenthood will be full of surprises. Conception does not have to be.
Path SpermQT was recently featured on Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh’s show, the Egg Whispherer Show. Watch here or listen on Spotify to learn more about how our advanced sperm quality test is helping couples to make more informed decisions about their family.
At this time, Path SpermQT costs $385.
At this time, we are currently self-pay only. However, if patients have an HSA or FSA account, they might be able to seek reimbursement from their plan. The first step would be for the patient to check with their plan; if the plan approves the expense, the patient can pay for a kit with their personal credit card and then submit a receipt to their plan for reimbursement.
This test is a Lab Developed Test under CAP/CLIA guidelines.
We have written a white paper that is available for download and will have a peer-reviewed paper available soon!
