It is no secret to anyone that in our society we have not yet achieved true equality between men and women, neither in terms of treatment nor rights. An example in the workplace is the difference in wages for the same responsibilities. And when it comes to relationships, when couples face fertility problems, women tend to be blamed initially, disproportionately compared to men, when they can't have children. Women are under increased social pressure and we are also more likely to see a specialist to determine the cause of fertility problems.. That's why the recent announcement by the Walmart company that it will start selling the SpermCheck Fertility kit in its pharmacies is almost a release step.
According to data from the National Institutes of Health, 15% of couples cannot have children, and the causes of infertility are divided equally: in a third of cases the difficulty of achieving pregnancy lies in a problem of the woman, in another third part, is due to a man's problem and, finally, sometimes the cause cannot be determined. So although men sometimes think they are Superman and are more reluctant to go to a doctor's office to have a checkup of their reproductive system, a simple analysis of the quality of their semen, such as the one that can be done with this kit, could avoid women more invasive and annoying procedures.
With this method, approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, a man does not need to go to the doctor and submit a semen sample to determine sperm count - he can do it himself in the privacy of his home. So far the fertility test kit is only available on the websites of Walgreens and CVS pharmacies.
