Progressive motile sperm cells are sperm cells that are able to move forward in a coordinated and purposeful manner, using their tails or flagella to swim towards the female egg during fertilization. These sperm cells are considered to be the most viable and effective in achieving fertilization.
The term "progressive motility" refers to the movement of the sperm cell. Sperm cells are evaluated based on their motility, or ability to move. The motility of sperm cells can be graded on a scale from 0 to 4, with 0 representing no movement and 4 representing normal forward movement. Sperm cells with a motility grade of 3 or 4 are considered to be progressive motile sperm cells and are most likely to successfully fertilize the egg.
It's important to note that the presence of progressive motile sperm cells does not guarantee successful fertilization or pregnancy. Other factors, such as sperm count, sperm morphology, and female fertility, also play a role in determining the likelihood of successful conception.
SwimCount is a home sperm test kit that allows men to check their progressive motile sperm cells in the comfort and privacy of their own home. It is important to note that SwimCount is not a replacement for a complete fertility evaluation by a healthcare provider, and should be used as a supplement to medical advice rather than a substitute.
