No: The sitzmark test is useful to determine whether chronic constipation is due to abnormally slow motility in the large intestine but may not define the cause.

What specific diet could drastically contribute to enhanced motility & morphology?

Organic whole foods: There is growing evidence that a wide variety of common environmental toxins such as pesticides can reduce fertility & sperm quality.I advise a diet of organic whole foods emphasizing fruits & vegies. Dairy from grass-fed cows, grass-fed beef (if you eat it), organic eggs, only wild fish low in mercury. Avoid gmo foods, fried foods, trans fats. While not proven, this can only help improve fertility. ...Read more

For hormonal problems, stimulation of sperm production with medicines might work. ...Read more

Nutritional changes and meds that change bowel contractility can help. Endo on bowel can also cause bowel symptoms. ...Read more

Semen testing guide: You should abstain from ejaculation for 2-5 days prior to submitting a semen sample. As long as at least 50% of your sperm are motile, your chances of conception are excellent at your age! If you are unable to conceive after legitimate attempts over 1 year, then you should repeat your semen analysis and see a urologist. ...Read more
