Ejaculation my husbands semen test repoprt is ok. Did little amount of ejaculation create problem to cocive?

It can: If your husband's semen analysis is normal by who criteria and you have been tested as well and are normal, problems with conception could be secondary to other factors like anti sperm antibodies (from trauma), older age couples (>40), etc. Small ejaculate volume can be a problem, but how is that possible if his semen test that includes volume was normal? Unless on the report he has small volume? ...Read more

Hi, I went for a semen test and it came back with 47% motility in my sperm, is that a good result?

Motility: Normal sperm motility is usually more than 50 percent. If it goes between 25-50% a single time, this may not necessarily be a problem. Lower than that has a higher likelihood of being problematic. The actual values may vary depending on the lab. ...Read more

Oligospermia: This is a low sperm count with low percentage of mobile sperm. A normal count is atleast 15 million per ml of ejaculate with 35% mobile. It is important to evaluate if there is an underlying cause that can be treated such as an infection, varicocelle, hormone abnormality or presence of antibody against sperm. Unfortunately, sometimes there is no treatable cause. Repeat sperm test to confirm. ...Read more

I had 5 semen test and have been told that I have 99 % of abnormal sperm, i was told that all my sperms are missing acrosome, how can I get them back?

Cant: So basically you have 1% normal morphology with few acrosomes. That is not going to change. It means that almost for sure you will need ivf with icsi to become pregnant, and that may not be as easy as it normally is to find good sperm. I would recommend consulting with a fertility specialist and getting started since this may be a bit of an uphill battle. ...Read more
