Here are some. ..: The semen report suggests some impaired shape and motility of sperms which may affect male fertility assuming all female related factors are okay, but not suffice to assure if there is infection in semen. In fact, it's good idea to relate the details of your Q to the treating Doc, not online sporadic inquiry. As to using vitamins, likely, the practicing placebo is implied, but no harm. ...Read more

I'm TTC wid 1tube open and Hubby's semen analysis:Total Sperm 35mil, Normal Morphology 70%, Pus cel 2-3, RBC 1-2.Unable to conceive wat may be the cause?

I'm TTC wid 1tube open and Hubby's semen analysis:Total Sperm 35mil, Normal Morphology 70%, Pus cel 2-3, RBC 1-2.Unable to conceive wat may be the cause?

Trying to conceive): There are two components; the maternal and the paternal.
Are you sure that you have ovulation? and the ova is healthy,? That the hormones through the menstrual cycle are normal? For the implantation of the egg.
On the other paternal side, the spermatozoa, must also be healthy, in morphology and motility.
First once the sperm finding confirm that are normal, the second step is for you.
It can be challenging with low morph because it makes it difficult based on the shape for the sperm to penetrate the egg.
Kruger strict morphology testing is very helpful in predicting the fertilization capability of the sperm.
For this test, freshly ejaculated sperm are smeared on a slide and stained using a morphology staining product for human sperm. Sperm are judged as normal based on the following criteria:
Head must be oval in shape with smooth contours, 5-6 µm in length and 2.5 to 3.5 µm wide with the acrosome taking up 40-70% of the head.
Neck and mid-piece must have no abnormalities and a cytoplasmic droplet (a remnant from sperm production) if present must not be larger than half the size of the head.
Tail must not be coiled or bent and should not have a droplet at the end.
After 200 individual sperm are counted at a magnification of 1, 000 times, the percent normal forms is calculated. The prognosis is based on the following scale:

>=15% normal: Normal range - Good prognosis
5-14% normal: Sub optimal range - Prognosis is fair to good, however, the lower the percent normal, the lower the chance of successful fertilization
0-4% normal: Poor prognosis - Will usually need IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)

The Kruger strict morphology test can be highly subjective, therefore choosing a lab with extensive daily experience that can also correlate the results with fertilization in vitro is extremely important.

Based on our experience we currently recommend a couple consider IVF with ICSI if the Kruger strict morphology is 5% or lower. Intrauterine insemination is often recommended for couples with Kruger results in the sub optimal but good prognosis range if there are no other factors that would prevent pregnancy. ...Read more

My man had a semen analysis done they wouldn't say if he was infertile or not they just said he has a high white blood cell count what does that mean?

What does RbC 7mm3 and WBC 22mm3 in urine analysis for. 65 years old woman mean? Urine culture was done also, no growth.

What does RbC 7mm3 and WBC 22mm3 in urine analysis for. 65 years old woman mean? Urine culture was done also, no growth.

Urinalysis: This probably means absolutely nothing, but the numbers and the way you express them suggests that you are not recording them correctly. Without knowing what your symptoms are or why the UA was done it is impossible to know what else you should do. Would also need to know how this was collected because in women results may be skewed by vaginal discharge contamination. ...Read more

My 4 year olds urine analysis says, no protein, glucose, blood, rbc, wbc or anything but a ph of 8 and sp gravity of 1.005.he is vegeterian, on milk.

That's fine: PH is mostly there to check for decomposition, which often makes things alkaline. Specific gravity is fine -- he's drinking water which is good. I'm glad he's getting milk -- in spite of the disinformation campaigns, it is very difficult to get enough calcium on a vegan diet. He will also need iron and mineral supplements. Thanks for writing and keep up the good work. ...Read more

How to understand my semen analysis. What is most important?

Have a dr. Explain: It's all important, for different reasons. One way of simplifying a sa is to multiply the total count (concentration * volume) by the %motility * %morphology to get a total-motile-normal count. That said, you really can't understand a sa from a short explanation, ask the responsible doctor to explain it! ...Read more

If you have had a vasectomy and you have had 2 cleared semen analysis should you continue to get checked?

If you have had a vasectomy and you have had 2 cleared semen analysis should you continue to get checked?

No: According to guidelines published by the american urological association, if there are no mobile sperm observed on a single post-vasectomy semen analysis done 8-16 weeks after the procedure, then you can stop using other forms of birth control. Recanalization of the vas deferens after this period is extremely rare. ...Read more

Does drinking alcohol before a semen analysis ok?

Does drinking alcohol before a semen analysis ok?

No: Because it impairs sperm structure and function, and may well be the reason that you and your partner are experiencing fertility issues. Anytime someone asks me if drinking before or after activity X, or drug Y (or whatever), I am concerned that drinking is too important a focus in your life, which is one step on the road to an alcohol problem. Be honest with your doctor about it. ...Read more

Can drinking alcohol before a semen analysis affect the result?

Can drinking alcohol before a semen analysis affect the result?

Long term use: Semen analysis tests are better indicators of health 2-3 months before the test. The sperm development cycle is 75 days, so an insult like alcohol usually shows up later. Sometimes we see effects sooner too. Alcohol is a sperm toxin in my experience but the effect is unpredictable (think alcoholics with kids). Many men who stop all alcohol have improved sperm and then pregnancy. Moderation good. ...Read more

Hi doctor,my hubby has a normal semen analysis except the liquefaction time more than 2 hrs....is there a problem?

See Below: Delayed liquefaction (DL) > 1 hour can be factor in male infertility and often implies a problem with the prostate or seminal vesicles: infection, inflammation, genetic, etc. A Post-Coital test should be done next to see if DL is truly a problem. No consensus on optimal treatment. Options include hydration, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory meds, diuretic, Mucinex, (guaifenesin) and various homeopathic medicines. ...Read more
