Does early knowledge of male's fertility potential affect the outcome of a possible fertility treatment.
The aim of the study is to investigate if a home test kit of the sperm motility and therefore early knowledge of the male fertility potential, can contribute to elimination of the barrier for men, who have to see a doctor for quicker treatment.
Male fertility factors contribute to approximately 50 % of infertile couples who are trying to conceive. The aim of the study is to investigate if a home test kit of the sperm motility and therefore early knowledge of the male fertility potential, can contribute to elimination of the barrier for men, who have to see a doctor for quicker treatment. Furthermore, through a quantitative questionnaire, the study wants to look at the changes in psychosocial aspects and life quality, when men can do the test in calm and safe environments at home.
Two questionnaires are sent out - one at the beginning of the study and a follow-up after 6 months.
