Should Young Guys Test Their Sperm?

Should Young Guys Test Their Sperm?

Oct 11, 2023

 Is this you?

Since you clicked here, we can guess a few things about you:
  • You're a smart guy, somewhere between young and middle-aged, who likes to stay healthy and in control.
  • You believe life is about more than just work. You want to have a family someday, and you know that good health is key to making that dream come true.
  • You appreciate science and how it helps us understand ourselves better. 
  • You're not afraid to ask questions and seek answers, especially when it comes to important stuff like your health.

Does that sound right?

Great. We're on the same page. 

Unfortunately, we've got some bad news: something is happening to our health. 

And we're officially sounding the alarm.

If you listen to Joe Rogan, you've probably heard about this... 



..but maybe you don't, so you haven't.

Since 1973, our sperm counts have dropped by more than 50%.

Maybe it's all the micro-plastics, or the pesticides and whatever is in our food, or even our polyester underwear we don't exactly know.

One thing is clear: our sperm is in trouble.

I know, I know, you're probably thinking,

"But I don't plan on having kids right now, why does this matter to me?" 

Well first off, men with lower sperm counts are more likely to suffer from:

  • Low Testosterone
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Higher rates of cardiovascular disease

The list goes on and on.

Second, that thought might have been fine for your grandfather, who was packing more swimmers than the Mississippi on a warm spring day, but not for you (or me).

Today, your sperm count is like your credit score for your fertility.

You don't check it only when you're buying a house. You monitor it years in advance.

So when you're finally ready to start a family, you don't get caught off guard with a low count.

That's why we made Tadpole — the discrete, rapid sperm count test you can take from the comfort of your home and get results in minutes. 

No need to spend hundreds of dollars for an awkward doctor or lab visit. No need to ship your "sample" to some faceless brand (that just feels...weird).

Just do your thing, and get your results fast.
