Semen test: t count 42 mil. Sperm motility 60% progressive 7% sluggish 31%. Are these values are normal to conceive naturally. Doctor says its not.

Yes, poor quality: Indeed the report of semen analysis showed poor qulity in motility. For low motility, I would like to know if there're many pus cells (white blood cells) in the semen and if you have significant varicocele. As to if you're going to impregnate your sexual partner or not, please remember: the result is just saying you have much lower likelihood to conceive, not 100% yes or no. ...Read more

Yes: Yes good for iui, but if that is his consistent result (on two tests), and the cervix is normal and you are not using Clomid (clomiphene) as a stimulation drug for fertility treatment, there is no good evidence that IUI actually increases pregnancy rates. Iui became popular as a treatment to balance the negative effect of Clomid (clomiphene) on the cervical mucous. Now with newer drugs not so necessary. Good luck. ...Read more

My husband sperm motility is 40% and he is taking addyzoa. How long will it take to normalize the sperm motility. Thank you.

Not predictable: A number of vitamins have been shown to improve sperm counts and motility.

Also, most of the research focuses on counts and motility rather than on getting pregnant which is what is really important. Anything that improves sperm takes at least 3mos. ...Read more

Is it possible to have good sperm motility but poor morphology? 12% morphology, 70% motility? Was the test accurate with these figures?

Morphology likely OK: Sperm morphology (the proportion of sperm that are normally shaped) is measured in different ways. The best is called "strict" morphology, because it predicts fertilization efficiency. Using that method, 12% normal sperm is actually very good and well above the value associated with decreased fertility (4%). Check the normal range for your test. Your result is probably normal. ...Read more
