At present, semen analysis requires men to visit a clinic and deposit the sample.

Janani, an end-to-end reproductive health and sexual wellness solutions platform, has launched a first-of-its-kind at-home advanced DIY semen testing kit. In a major disruption in the fertility testing market in India, the at-home semen collection aims to help more men feel comfortable with fertility testing and encourage them to step forward. Currently, the services are limited to Bengaluru but are expected to be available in Mumbai by July.

At present, semen analysis requires men to visit a clinic and deposit the sample. Given the social taboos around sexual health and the lack of privacy at clinics, a lot of men back out from getting their semen analyzed. Semen testing from home has been challenging so far because of the quick mortality of the sperm which poses a logistical challenge. Led by S S Vasan, co-founder of Janani and former Founding Chairman of Manipal Fertility, Janani has developed a unique media that can store a sample without any damage to the sperms for up to eight hours in non-laboratory conditions, thus providing enough time for the samples to be collected from homes and then brought to the laboratories.

Once a person registers himself for semen analysis, they ship the DIY semen testing kit in discreet packaging to the person's address. The user can then follow instructions on the package and easily deposit his sample in the comfort of his home. The sample is then collected by an agent from the address and sent to its labs for testing. The user is provided with a detailed and comprehensive report within 24 hours of receiving the sample.

Speaking on the launch, Nilay Mehrotra, Founder, Janani, said, "Fertility discussions are still mostly limited to that of women. But we are here to change that. With rising male infertility and concern about male sexual wellness, men need to come forward for fertility tests. But most men feel shy and uncomfortable with the current model of semen testing at diagnostic centers. With our unique offering, men can now take the test from the comfort and convenience of their homes. At Janani, we want to make fertility care gender-neutral, comfortable, and more accessible to everyone through technology. Guided by industry stalwarts like SS Vasan himself, we will continue to offer innovative, tech-enabled, and personalized fertility care solutions for a modern India." (IANS/JC)
