Sapyen helps men understand their fertility health in the comfort of their homes by creating easy access to testing and information.

Sapyen is an at-home male fertility diagnostic tool which has been built to ensure all men can access fertility and reproductive care from anywhere at any time.

Several men experience anxiety during the fertility testing process at hospitals, which can affect testing outcomes. Sapyen helps to reduce this anxiety and makes it easy for men to test at home without sacrificing quality of care.
