Path SpermQT

From Path Fertility

SpermQT, or “Sperm Quality Test”, is a new sperm quality test that looks inside the male partner’s sperm to examine how the genes are functioning. SpermQT reports the sperm’s ability to successfully achieve a pregnancy.

Who is Path SpermQT for?

SpermQT is for any couple who is trying to conceive and wants to know more about the male partner’s sperm health. SpermQT can help identify if there is a male factor that could prevent a natural pregnancy.

All too often, couples go through months of timed intercourse, failed rounds of IUI, only to eventually move on to IVF. The goal of SpermQT is to get pregnant faster.

SpermQT can help identify if the male partner’s sperm is ideal for natural conception or IUI or is best-suited for IVF with *ICSI, which is shown to overcome sperm quality issues.

SpermQT identifies male factors that are missed by the standard semen analysis. In fact, 4 out of 5 men with a “Poor” SpermQT result had a normal semen analysis.

Patient Stories

 Tim* previously underwent cancer treatment and wasn’t sure if his fertility was affected by chemotherapy.

His semen analysis indicated that he had low sperm concentration and total motile count.

However, Path SpermQT results showed Tim had an excellent sperm quality profile. Knowing this, he and his partner decided with their providers that they would try to conceive naturally.

Three months later, they were pregnant.

Without the information provided by Path QT about Tim’s sperm quality, this couple likely would have been directed to start medication or even to consider IUI or IVF considering his situation, but this would have bene unnecessary.

IUI Assessment

Path Fertility + Posterity Health

Path Fertility is partnering with Posterity Health to offer the only IUI Assessment designed to provide a full overview of sperm health.

Who is IUI Assessment for?

This assessment is for those considering Intrauterine Insemination (IUI).

Before doing IUI, this bundled testing will reveal if the partner’s sperm is ideal for IUI, or is best-suited for IVF with *ICSI, which is shown to overcome sperm quality issues.

This IUI Assessment includes two tests: a standard semen analysis (identifying the count, concentration, motility, and morphology of sperm) which assesses the number of sperm able to swim to the egg, and a Path SpermQT analysis (opening the head of the sperm and examining the internal function) which assesses the sperm’s ability to successfully achieve a pregnancy.

These two tests together make for a richer, more complete assessment of potential IUI success than either test alone.

Patient Stories

Jesse*, a 38 year old male with normal semen parameters, attempted 6 IUI cycles with his partner. All 6 cycles failed. 6 rounds can cost between $9,000 to $12,000 and take more than a year.

After 15 months, Jesse and his partner consulted their providers and decided to try Path SpermQT.

His results indicated that he had a Poor sperm quality profile. So, even though Jesse’s sperm count, concentration, morphology was within normal range, epigenetic factors made him much less likely to find success through IUI.

If Jesse and his partner had Path SpermQT results earlier, they could have bypassed IUI and tried IVF instead, saving thousands of dollars and precious time.

The Science Behind SpermQT

SpermQT (“Sperm Quality Test”) provides a deeper understanding of your sperm health by looking inside the sperm. This test identifies sperm issues that are missed by the standard semen analysis.

SpermQT helps your doctor identify patients who are ideal candidates for IUI, and those who are better-suited to move on to IVF with ICSI more quickly. In fact, our research indicates that men with Excellent sperm quality are twice as likely to conceive using IUI compared to those with Poor sperm quality. 

Sperm quality is complex, and more than one test is needed for a comprehensive assessment. Whether talking to your own provider or with one of Posterity’s male fertility specialists, having information about your sperm quality can help to make decisions about the most effective treatment plan for you.
