twoplus Sperm Guide: What's The Science And How Does It Work?

On the fence about the twoplus Sperm Guide? Here’s your quick and dirty 5-minute guide on how it works and why it might be the right conception aid for you.

Getting pregnant is not always as easy as it sounds, especially when we lead such fast-paced and stressful lifestyles. Add to that, the dramatically declining sperm count. A recent study showed that the average sperm count produced by men has halved in the last 40 years [2], making the entire conception process more challenging than it already is. 

While medical help is readily available, it can be a daunting and costly endeavour to seek help from a fertility specialist. That’s where at-home conception aids like the twoplus Sperm Guide come in.


All about the Sperm Guide

Simply put, think of the Sperm Guide as a device that is designed to boost chances of conception by providing a safe environment for sperm, minimising leakage post-intercourse and getting more of them as close to the cervix as possible [1]

A one-size fits all device designed with a panel of fertility experts and made using medical grade silicone, it is easy-to-use (we’ll cover the step-by-step guide below) and requires no medical prescription or assistance [1]

At first glance, this device resembles a sophisticated funnel, the kind you find in the kitchen and use to transfer liquid from one bottle to another. At closer inspection, you will realise that there’s more to it than meets the eye.

Anatomy of the Sperm Guide [1]

  • Surface: Has grooves on its surface to ‘guide’ swimmers in the direction of the uterus.
  • Flap: Soft and malleable without any sharp corners, it is comfortable to wear and allows for seamless penetration without being in the way. When withdrawing, it flips up to form a ‘cup’ that minimises semen leakage post-intercourse.
  • Arc: This slight bend allows for semen to sit closer to the cervix, helping them get to where they need to be with half the effort! 
  • Tail: Allows for easy wearing and removal. 

  • But that’s not all it does. As the vaginal tract is highly acidic and toxic to sperm, most do not survive the arduous journey [3]. However, with the Sperm Guide acting as a barrier between the two, sperm is protected and therefore more makes it through the cervix and into the uterus, increasing the chances of conception!

    Using the Sperm Guide

    To use the Sperm Guide effectively and correctly, here are 6 easy steps to follow [1]

    1. Lubricate the vaginal opening with the sperm-friendly lubricant. 
    2. Pinch in the flaps of the Sperm Guide device for smoother vaginal insertion.
    3. Insert the Sperm Guide while lying on your back. You should feel like something is there, but not uncomfortable — something like a tampon.
    4. Ensure that the penis glides over the Sperm Guide’s flap when having intercourse.
    5. Once the love dance is over, do keep the Sperm Guide in for up to an hour.
    6. After an hour, remove the Sperm Guide by gently pulling the tail.

    Is the Sperm Guide right for me?

    The Sperm Guide is incredibly helpful for couples who have been trying to conceive but have not been successful, or those who’ve just started trying and want to speed up the process [1]. It is also comfortable and convenient, unlike other fertility devices that require awkward leg raises for a prolonged period of time post-coitus. In fact, you can go about your daily life and even attend your 4pm Zoom meeting while wearing the Sperm Guide. 

    Having said that, if you’re under 35 and have been trying for more than a year, or above 35 and trying for more than 6 months, there might be a deeper reason why you’ve not conceived and it is best to seek professional medical advice [4]

    Not to mention, it is more affordable than medical fertility treatments. A single Sperm Guide costs just S$68 (£43) and a bundle of 3, currently going at 30% off, goes for S$138 (£86).
