Maybe: When we evaluate sperm , information can be used in certain ways, we can categorize sperm as normal, mildly abnormal or severely abnormal. We have some idea of how each parameter matters, but certain aspects are not understood . With significant abnormalities, sometimes the sperm just do not function as well, or sometimes the sperm may have genetic abnormalities and the effect goes beyond the #.
