How to improve low sperm motility and morphology?

How to improve low sperm motility and morphology?

Improve sperm count: Optimizing sperm: 1) be healthy (i.e.- proper diet ; exercise) 2) avoid excessive heat (i.e.- hot tubs, long-term sitting, and occupational hazards) 3) limit alcohol ingestion 4) see a urologist to be checked for a varicocele 5) do not, under any circumstances, take testosterone supplements or HCG injections! ...Read more

Morphology (Definition)

As used in pathology, this is the abnormal shapes and arrangements of organs, tissues, cells, and components of cells that enable the diagnosis of disease and help to understand its impact. Some diseases involve only abnormal function of normal-appearing parts and thus ...Read more

Can IUI help to impregnate even low sperm count and low motility?

Can IUI help to impregnate even low sperm count and low motility?

Depends how low ...: In general intrauterine insemination (iui) may help with mild to moderate sperm problems but ivf with icsi (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is better for severe sperm problems. If semen analysis shows total motile counts (tmc) of less than 10 million on more than one sa, or IUI preparations have less than 2 million 'postwash' tmc (after the sperm is prepared) on a regular basis, icsi is needed. ...Read more

Can a low sperm count and low motility impregnate a woman?

Can a low sperm count and low motility impregnate a woman?

How low?: Well....It only takes one, but men with below (roughly) 5-10 million motile normal sperm often can't impregnate their partners without medical assistance. If you wish to specify actual numbers i'd be glad to comment further. ...Read more

Total motile sperm 63 mil with 80% normal morphology and 30% motility is that good? Does total motile sperm count matter more than individual readings

Total motile sperm 63 mil with 80% normal morphology and 30% motility is that good? Does total motile sperm count matter more than individual readings

Good: Those numbers are all good; better than average. Usually total motile normal is more important than individual parameters, but sometimes an individual number will rule if it is significantly out of the normal range. ...Read more

How to increase the quality of semen.Both sperm count and motility rate?

How to increase the quality of semen.Both sperm count and motility rate?

Herbs/supps/detoxify: At least 3 herbs are proven to improve sperm count/motility: maca, tongkat ali and mucuna pruriens. There's also evidence that ginseng, ashwagandha and tribulus may help. Standardized extracts are available. Other nutrients like zinc and l-carntine/acetly-l-carnitine can help too. See https://tinyurl.com/yxo7m8h3
Most important might be to avoid GMO's/eat organic and detoxify.See book in image. ...Read more

Good sperm count but sperm have morphology shape can IUI help.

Good sperm count but sperm have morphology shape can IUI help.

Yes: Abnormal morphology can be improved with antioxidant nutritional therapy. Evaluation by a urologist may reveal a large varicocele and if corrected it will improve the morphology also. Intrauterine insemination seems to help with pregnancies when abnormal morphology exists. ...Read more

What percentage of sperm count constitue low sperm count?

Standard: A density of 14 million sperm per cc with a motility of 40 to 50 % is considered normal based on most recent who ppublication. Keep in mind that normal parameters are on a bell curve with most people being able to conceive with a normal count. ...Read more

My total motile sperm count was 63 million and normal mprphology was 80%, count per/ml 30 million and motility was 30% would low motility b an issue?

My total motile sperm count was 63 million and normal mprphology was 80%, count per/ml 30 million and motility was 30% would low motility b an issue?

Yes, it can be...: Oveall, the quality of your semen is good to fertilize a waiting egg although motility is on low side. Are there some or many white blood cells in the semen? Are your sex partner being evaluated and well for conceiving? So, ask , talk, and work with doctor. Best wish... ...Read more

How much should be the motility in sperm count semen analysis is normal volume 3.9 total count 38.1 million ejaculate is 148.5?

See answer: 2010 world health organization (who) reference values are the most widely used. Normal values are: volume 1.5-6.0 ml; count >15 million/ml; total sperm count: >39 million; motility: >50%; progressive motility >32%, normal morphology >4%. Some feel the most important single number in the semen analysis evaluation is the total progressively motile sperm per ejaculate which should be ? 12.5 million. ...Read more

Conceiving with low sperm morphology. What are the odds?

Conceiving with low sperm morphology. What are the odds?

Possible: Although normal sperm morphology is important in conceiving, a low value may be compensated by higher sperm counts and increased motility. It does take 100's of millions of normal sperm to "get the job" done, you may benefit by concentrating the sample and considering doing intrauterine insemination or iui. Make sure the rest of your testing is normal. Good luck. ...Read more

Normal testosterone level but low sperm count and motility is there any chance of pregnancy?

Normal testosterone level but low sperm count and motility is there any chance of  pregnancy?

With assistance.: Testosterone is not usually the issue regarding successful fertilization. It is the need for sperm to reach the egg. With poor mortality, sperm do not swim vigorously enough to get to the fallopian tubes to meet an egg. Low sperm counts mean few sperm available for journey. Talk with a specialist. S/he may first try injecting sperm into the uterine cavity then recommend in vitro fertization. ...Read more

What are good numbers for sperm count and motility?

What are good numbers for sperm count and motility?

See below: Normal motility should be >50% motile. Most important number is total motile sperm count (volume x concentration x motility) normal total count would be >40 million, but numbers can vary up to 50% day to day. <20 million total is concerning, <10 million is very low. ...Read more

My sperm count 15 million per ml and volume 3 ml and normal sperm 80% amd motilty 55% is that normal????

My sperm count 15 million per ml and volume 3 ml and normal sperm 80% amd motilty 55% is that normal????

Not normal: A sperm count of 15 million, with 80 % normal and 55 % motility is not normal. But there is no reason to despair. While the chances of impregnating an egg are lower, it takes only one sperm to fertilize an egg and conception is determined by many more factors than the sperm count. ...Read more

What is 'good' sperm count and motility?

20million per ml: Who criteria state that normal counts are above 20million per cc of semen. Some other studies say that pregnancy rates fall when sperm concentration are below 15 million per cc. Motility and morphology and semen volume are other important parameters. ...Read more

Semen analysis. Volume 7.0, viscosity normal, pH 7.5, count 30 million, motility 30 morphology 20. What are chances of getting pregnant with this result.

Unknown: 7 x 30= 210 million x 30% = 70 million x 20% = 14 million total available sperm this is low. There is no percent chance that i can give you unfortunately. It only takes one tho. There is some theoretical risks of taking Propecia (finasteride) with the pregnancy. Talk to your doctor about that. You may need to stop the med first. The low total sperm number may require inseminations. See your wifes gyn. ...Read more
