Shampoo, Scripts and Sperm Count Kits: Walgreens to Sell Male Fertility TestsMeredith Carroll
You already knew you could count on Walgreens for health and beauty and drug essentials.
But now you can count your essentials in Walgreens. If you’re a man, that is.
Starting in April, all 7,800 Walgreens stores across the country will sell $40 SpermCheck Fertility test kits, which will allow men to see if they are producing enough sperm to get a woman pregnant, according to Fox News.
The male fertility kits will accompany nearly two-dozen varieties of female fertility kits already available in the drug chain. Walgreens and CVS already sell the sperm check tests online.
Male fertility tests are a $440 million-a-year business, according to the CEO of ContraVac, the company that makes SpermCheck Fertility test kits.
The test’s instructions indicate 20 million or more per milliliter of seamen is normal, and a reading below normal means a man should “consult a physician about a complete fertility evaluation.”
Is news of the over-the-counter male fertility kit music to your ears?
