Male fertility test soon to hit store shelves

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - It could soon be easier for couples wanting to start a family to know if it's possible. A male fertility test will soon hit stores.

A Charlottesville company called Contravac says the test is to determine if the man has fertility problems — letting men avoid the doctor's office without sacrificing accuracy.

The test claims to indicate normal or low sperm count. It also claims it's over 98 percent accurate.

It's similar to a home pregnancy test. It uses colored lines to let the person know if the product worked and if he is fertile.

Contravac's founder hopes the test will raise awareness of male infertility and decrease unnecessary testing of women.

Tell us what you think of the product on our facebook page.

The SpermCheck fertility home test is expected to be in drug stores starting April 15.
