Cryos MOT Guarantee

    Our MOT Guarantee consists of different options for millions of motile sperm cells. MOT5, MOT10, MOT20 and MOT30+ all containing 2.5 million or more, motile sperm cells per straw.  

    In our 30 years of experience in helping people get pregnant, we have learned that it is better to have two opportunities to fertilize the egg during your ovulation. Every woman is different, but two inseminations timed approximately 12 hours apart should cover the most critical fertile window during ovulation.  

    There is only a 12-24 hour window to catch your egg once it drops during ovulation, so timing is key! Learn more about ovulation and timing here.


    Specimen Guarantee

    MOT Levels Motile Sperm Count Per Straw
    MOT5 2.5 Million - 5 Million
    MOT10 5 Million - 9.5 Million
    MOT20 10 Million - 15 Million
    MOT30+  15 Million +

    *Each sperm straw is 0.5 ml. Two straws will add up to 1 ml of sperm. Purchasing two MOT10 straws would provide you with at least 10 million sperm.

    The graph below shows the percentage rate of getting pregnant versus the total sperm count in a sperm sample (millions) using aggregate data. This data is predominantly for clinical IUI inseminations to reduce variable factors like timing, and it shows there is a big difference between the likelihood of getting pregnant using one MOT5 straw for example (guaranteed minimum of 2.5 million sperm per straw) compared to one MOT10 straw (guaranteed minimum 5 million sperm per straw), and the recommended two MOT10 straws (guaranteed between 10 million sperm and 19 million sperm).

    The pregnancy rate when using two MOT10 straws is about 12.5%. This is a 50% increase from the pregnancy rate when using a MOT5 with 2.5 million motile sperm for insemination. The rates continue to increase steadily up to 20 million sperm, and then start to plateau. Therefore, higher MOT levels can be used, but usually because it is a personal preference versus a higher chance of pregnancy. Cryos has straws ranging from MOT5 – MOT30+.
