Fertell, a new at-home fertility test, includes a male test for sperm motility and a female test for a follicle-stimulating hormone. The results provide just one indication of a couple's ability to reproduce, but one that has primary significance.
As Dr. Harry Fisch tells NPR's Rebecca Roberts, the test could promote awareness of fertility issues among couples seeking to have children. The test kits are expected to sell for around $100.
Dr. Fisch is the director of the Male Reproductive Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center.
