Go Beyond the Semen Analysis

Semen Analysis

A semen analysis can tell you if you have sperm, how well it moves, and if it has a normal shape. However, sperm count, motility, and morphology are very poor predictors of fertility.

Seed Epigenetic Test

Having sperm is not enough. Seed looks inside sperm to identify epigenetic problems in its DNA. These epigenetic problems can affect sperm function and proper embryo development.

 
 

Give Yourself the Best Chance for a Healthy Pregnancy


Whether you are struggling to get pregnant naturally or have already had an unsuccessful IVF cycle, Seed can help you decide on your best path forward.

Infertility is an expensive and emotionally draining experience. Seed helps you manage your own care, so you can make informed decisions on how you spend your time and money. Before you spend $24,000 on an IVF cycle, spend $495 to understand if sperm health will impact your chances of success.
