Through the expansion of their collaboration, announced today by Sppare.me and Diamond Institute for Infertility and Menopause, Sppare.me will further enhance its at-home male fertility preservation solution leveraging on Diamond’s state-of-the-art cryopreservation capabilities, innovative technologies, and male fertility expertise, accumulated over the past 50 years.

The parties agreed to invest in the development of at-home sperm diagnostics, and sperm shipment and storage breakthrough technologies. This will allow male patients to analyze or cryopreserve their sperm from the comfort of their own home utilizing smart, safe, and reliable technology.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention institute, about 12% of couples in the United States who are of childbearing age might be affected by infertility. The Infertility in America 2015 Survey and Report by RMANJ shows that roughly 7 million Americans a year experience infertility. In almost 50% of couples impacted, the male is either a contributing or the sole cause to infertility.

In addition, a substantial number of men who need to preserve their sperm and do not do so come to regret it later in life. The most common reasons to preserve sperm include men undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments, prior to a vasectomy, hormone replacement therapy, anabolic steroid use, high-risk careers, military deployment, and men planning to have children later in life.

“In an era of technology and accessibility, fertility diagnostics and sperm banking are still an awkward, time consuming and overly priced process. We look to simplify things, make them reachable and raise awareness for other means of dealing with this issue. We want to spare men the uncomfortable experience of waiting at a hospital or fertility clinic, with a bunch of stressed out strangers, on their way to collect their sperm in a tiny room. We offer an affordable and smart solution to any man who wants to someday have a family” said Jonathan Gielbartowicz, a co-founder at Sppare.me. In addition he says: “We feel blessed to have been working with a dedicated team such as the Diamond Institute over the past 2 years and we can see their deep understanding of male fertility; it is a perfect fit for us and we are excited about this new program”.

Dr. Matan Yemini, MD, a reproduction expert at Diamond Institute says, "Partnering with Sppare.me will enable us to offer the world innovative ways for testing male fertility preservation. We are excited for the opportunity to explore new solutions and possibilities".

Founded in 2014, sppare.me offers a comfortable, affordable and reliable sperm banking and storage service to suit today’s modern lifestyle. With Sppare.me, men from anywhere in the United States can safely secure their fertility within the comfort of their own home with a simple and user-friendly process, dedicated customer support and a unique quality guarantee. “We are here to help people deal with a very sensitive topic, and show them that they should never give up on their dream of having a family”.

Diamond Institute is an independent world-class fertility center devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Since 1968, in one comprehensive setting, the Institute has been offering sophisticated state-of-the-art laboratories, operating rooms, consultation offices and a variety of support services. It reports to and is an approved member of The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART), a subdivision of the American Fertility Society.
