We offer at-home sperm testing consistent with Catholic teaching. Our testing is private and confidential and includes a telehealth consult with a Catholic fertility expert.
Often in a couple’s fertility journey, male factor infertility can be quickly ruled out by completing a semen analysis. The most common method of collecting a semen sample is, unfortunately, for men to masturbate into a collecting cup at a doctor’s office.
However, there is a preferred, more respectful method taught in the Catholic Church that upholds the dignity of the man. The alternative, in which does not contradict our religious beliefs, includes collection a semen sample privately at home using a perforated seminal collection device (SCD). With this device the couple can still be open to life during intimacy. The SCD comes in a kit with everything you need for home semen sample collection. The kit includes everything you need to FedEx the sample to the specialized lab that will do your high quality semen analysis including sperm count.
You can order a home semen analysis collection kit and see telehealth physican that specializes in male fetility care through MyCatholicDoctor.
This seminal analysis is then analyzed to determine sperm count and quality. Your doctor will discuss the results with you through telehealth, privately and securly.
There are many options to treat male infertility, but just as female infertility, it can be complex and messy to understand. If you have a healthcare provider who dismisses the strong moral compass of the Catholic faith you live everyday, we encourage you to find a provider who will advocate for you, your health, and your family.
