The babystart® FertilMate™ Scrotum Cooling Patch is a specially designed hydrogel pad with natural l-menthol used to provide the cooling effect. FertilMate8wThe Cooling Patch has a pleasant aroma and a slim, flexible, non-messy format. It is easily trimmed and shaped for use on all sizes of scrotum and comes in a re-sealable bag, with no need for refrigeration. There are two versions of the FertilMate™ Scrotum Cooling Patch, a 'Trial' pack of 8 off patches for those men that want to ensure that the patch can be worn successfully by them, either one a day whilst at work or during daytime 'warm' periods and/or another one worn during sleep. Then there is a full boxed set which contains 32 off patches for an effective use of one spermatogenesis cycle, 16 days at 2 patches per day, one worn whilst at work or during daytime 'warm' periods and the other during sleep.
  • Cooling: the FertilMate™ Patch helps maintain an optimal temperature beneficial to spermatogenesis.
  • Soothing: natural, relaxing, long-lasting cooling right where you need it.
  • Effective: FertilMate™ will immediately feel cool or slightly 'tingy' and this effect will last for 2-4 hours, while the soothing effect will last much longer. After 6-8 hours we recommend that the patch is replaced with a fresh one.
  • Beneficial: testicular temperature highly correlates with scrotal temperature and "increased intrascrotal temperature is prevalent in subfertile men regardless of clinical diagnosis". (A.W. Zorgniotti and A.I. Sealfon: J. Reprod. Fert. (1988) 82,563-566)
  • Recommended Use: testicular temperature is affected by numerous issues, some of which are medical problems and some of which are man made. Driving or sitting for hours at work increases testicular temperature, as does sleeping and particularly if you sleep on your side.
  • FertilMate™ helps reduce testicular temperature in these 'warm' working and 'warm' sleeping periods.
  • Spermatogenesis: sperm development is called spermatogenesis. Each spermatogenesis cycle has about six stages. The duration of each cycle is about 16 days. Five cycles are required to produce one mature sperm. Therefore, it takes approximately 86 days for a complete spermatogenetic cycle. Because the process is so complex, any illness or prolonged raised testicular temperature events during the first cycle could affect sperm formation and these events tend to affect ALL the sperm, not just one or two.
  • Frequency of use: the FertilMate™ Cooling Patch should ideally be used for six months, although initial improvements in sperm quality may be seen after three months. At the very least, one full 'initial cycle' of 16 days should be tried and that is why each full boxed set of FertilMate™ contains 16 pouches (two patches per pouch), as we recommend the wearing of one patch during working hours and one during sleeping hours.
A relationship between experimental elevation of testis temperature and poor semen quality has been known for over eighty years.
Experience shows that prolonged reduction of the temperature of the scrotal area by about 2 to 5 degrees C., may be effective in reversing male infertility and  there are numerous published study data to support this theory
