What do you suggest if my husband had his sperm analysis today.. can't get ahold of the dr. for interpetation. what does it mean?
Unclear question: If the results are late in being reported, it may be due to the andrologist taking extra time to read the morphology (shape) of the sperm. It may also be because the semen was sent for cultures, checking for bacteria. If the sperm analysis was brought in late, typically over 1 hour, then the results may not be as accurate. ...Read more
Will having deformed sperm on a guy's sperm analysis increase the chances of a deformity in his future baby?
No: Deformed sperm typically result in an "all or none" phenomenon. That is, a woman may not get pregnant or, if she does conceive, the pregnancy may fail. Deformed sperm will not generally result in a deformed baby. Having said that, it's not normal to have a high percentage of abnormal sperm, so the man should undergo further investigation to optimize the odds of pregnancy success. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My sperm analysis result volume 4.5 count 62 million 40% motile 50 % nonmotile 10% slugish morphalogy 85% normal 15% abnormal. What does all of this mean? Is my sperm normal?
Yes, but ...: The values you quote are normal except the morphology value suggests the lab did not use the most up-to-date standard of "strict morphology". Further, there are additional sperm tests sometimes used if you are not achieving pregnancy in a normal number of months. Conception is a "team sport" and the fertility potential of your partner is just as important. See a specialist for details. ...Read more
