The YO Home Sperm Test (YO) is a free Smartphone app that works with a purchased YO Test Kit to both show you a LIVE VIDEO of your sperm and measure your MOTILE SPERM CONCENTRATION (how many moving sperm cells in 1 ml of your sample).
Why is MOTILE SPERM CONCENTRATION tested?
In normal intercourse sperm need to MOVE in order to reach the egg. So knowing if you have a MODERATE/NORMAL or LOW number of moving sperm is important when assessing your fertility potential. It is also quite cool to SEE your own sperm moving in the YO video.
There are other home sperm tests available so why YO?
YO is the only Smartphone based, FDA approved home sperm test that reports MOTILE SPERM CONCENTRATION (how many moving sperm cells in 1 ml of your sample) and shows you a live video of your sperm. Other home tests report only CONCENTRATION and your swimmers could all be dead or not moving and you would get a NORMAL result. With YO you’re testing the swimmers – the ones that can potentially reach an egg.
How do I start?
First, you download the YO HOME SPERM app from either Google Play or the iPhone store. Just search for YO Sperm Test and you’ll find it. Then you purchase a YO kit from our website: www.yospermtest.com When you are ready to test, collect your sample and follow the step-by-step instructions in the YO app.
What is the actual testing process?
Collect your sample in the cup provided following the product insert instructions (no lubricants and no partners).
Pour one vial of powder provided into your sample and let it ‘rest’ for 10 minutes.
Take the YO SPERM TRIVIA CHALLENGE during the 10 minute wait time.
Place the YO CLIP from your kit onto your Smartphone.
Using the pipette provided suck up some of your sample and place one drop onto the red dot of the YO SLIDE .
Insert the YO SLIDE into the YO CLIP and press START TESTING.
Is it FDA approved?
Yes, YO was FDA and CE (Europe) cleared in 2016.
Who makes YO?
YO was developed by Medical Electronic Systems, a company with over 20 years of experience developing automated sperm testing devices for hospital labs, the military, Sperm banks and IVF centers worldwide.
Was it tested?
YO was tested EXTENSIVELY in the MES laboratory for a period of three years. It was then tested by over 300 participants in FDA trials.
How accurate is it?
YO is > 97% accurate. Inaccuracies are generally caused by not following the step by step instructions such as not filling the slide on the red dot.
Is it easy to use?
Over 300 participants who had never run a YO test before tested their sperm successfully by following the YO step-by-step instructions.
Will my sample touch my phone?
Your sperm sample does not touch your phone. The slide used for the sample is called a FIXED COVERSLIP slide and that means that your sample goes under a plastic slide cover. The YO SLIDE is then inserted into the YO CLIP which is above your phone. The YO KIT also supplies wipes to ‘clean’ when you finish testing.
What is in the YO TEST KIT?
The YO kit includes All of the supplies required to run TWO YO home sperm tests on your Smartphone.
