A 40-year-old male asked:

My semen analysis show everything normal and good scores, except sperm morphology score which was 3% (kruger), what does that mean? do i need treatment, or it is ok? ( i read that 4% is the reference range), do i need to worry about this low score?

Close to normal: 3% is on the low side but more than adequate to achieve pregnancy (all you need is one sperm to fertilize the egg; the number of sperm in one normal emission is 100-200 millions; 3% is 3-6 millions!). No need to worry unless you get down close to zero %

A 39-year-old male asked:
Recent semen analysis for fertility. Lab showed low motility with 30% progressive sperm (ref range >32%). All other markers (count, physical) are within range. Recommend treatment with supplements (Fertox / Proxeed) or wait and re-test?
Dr. Birendra Tandan

Wait and retest in 3 months. No supplements help in this. Eat a healthy diet, exercise and God-willing it will be OK next time.
