Thick, Chunky Sperm And Fertility
Can you tell if sperm is fertile based on its consistancy? Like liquid clear flowing sperm vs thick white tacky sperm?
Masturbating 5 times a day for several years in tennage had made my semen very thin, very less white and less in amount. Than I reduced my frequency and now my semen is very thick and white. Am I normal in terms of sperm count and fertility?
Is it possible to still get pregnant if your partner takes a home sperm fertility test and it comes back negative?
Hi... My husband sperm is 40 million. Is it good for fertility? I have been married since 2 years and still I m not getting pregnant. Thx
OK with 40...:
Sperm count alone is ok, but sperm motility and form are important also.
Concerning infertility, generally speaking, causes in females are counted for 50 % of times; in males, 30 %; and 20% from both men and women.
You're still young so just try for another one year. If in doubt, go to see and talk with your doctors in the field.

Had sex 20th. May have gotten sperm inside. Took birthcontrol pills 21st. Start fertility tomorrow (23) could I still get pregnant.?
Can sperm get through condom & 4 layers of clothes and still be fertile to get a girl preg? Can they find the way to vagina by themselves?
No, and No!: The answer in "No" to both of your questions. Sperm don't have a brain and cannot "swim" toward the vagina. There is no chemical or magnetic attraction: they pretty much need to be deposited into the vagina. And fertilization is more of a random act when an active motile sperm encounters an ovum ("egg"). ...Read more
Been trying conceive & u had sex 2 days ago on my fertile days but I'm not ovulate yet. How long sperm alive inside of My uterus? Can I still get preg
Sperm can stay alive: From 3-5 days inside the vaginal vault/ uterus. The best method of conception is via ovulation charting, which uses the body's basal temperature rise that correlate with ovulation to predict when you will ovulate each month. This method sidesteps the irregularity built into many women's menstrual cycle. Then maximize the sperm contact with ovulation 3 days before and 3 days after. Best of luck ...Read more
Improve sperm qual: I agree with others but let me add that there are lifestyle changes that can improve sperm quality. Stop smoking, decrease alcohol, avoid heat situations like hot tubs, saunas and baths; extreme sports can also be a problem. If you are a body builder then no steroids or supplements with androgens (tricky, so read labels carefully). Sperm cycle is 75d, so change takes a while to see results. ...Read more
Semen Analysis info: The semen analysis is performed on a fresh specimen within 2 hours of collection. Before testing, a period of 2-4 days of abstinence from ejaculation is recommended. The specimen is best collected by masturbation into a sterile container. This is most conveniently performed in the facility provided at the laboratory however collection at home is acceptable if it can be brought in within 1 hr. ...Read more
After liquifaction of the sperm sample an hour or so after ejaculation, a drop is placed in a small measured volume chamber, and sperm count and motility are measured under the microscope. Multiplying these values by the sperm volume gives a total motile sperm count, the best single measure of sperm quality. Many other measures exist.
Automated systems are available for semen analysis. ...Read more

Semen analysis: Semen analysis is not a test of fertility rather an evaluation of production of sperm. Even with slight abnormalities fertility may not necessarily be affected. I'm assuming the numbers you are referring to pertain to morphology. If that is the case, those numbers are fine. The remaining numbers referring to count and motility are also important for full assessment. ...Read more
Depends upon count: Men should have at least 20 million sperm in an ejaculate to be fertile. 10 million or less is considered infertile. Additionally, most of the sperm should be motile. However fertility can be increased by artificial insemination, ivf (in vitro fertilization) ; with as little as 1/2 sperm by icsi (intra cytoplasmic sperm injection0. ...Read more

Probably nothing: Group B strep (GBS) is a normal bacteria in the genital area. Its main importance is that if in the vagina at the time of labor, the baby can be seriously infected. Typically it causes no symptoms in adults. However, if your semen otherwise has signs of infection, GBS might have something to do with it. Discuss with the doctor who advised the semen culture. ...Read more
