What does it mean if the sperm analysis is late?

What does it mean if the sperm analysis is late?

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?

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 more

Am i fertile sa normal 64 abnorm 36 on sperm analysis?

Am i fertile sa normal 64 abnorm 36 on sperm analysis?

Semen analysis: Semen analysis is not a test of fertility rather an evaluation of production of sperm. Even with slight abnormalities fertility may not necessarily be affected. I'm assuming the numbers you are referring to pertain to morphology. If that is the case, those numbers are fine. The remaining numbers referring to count and motility are also important for full assessment. ...Read more

My husband had his sperm analysis today; what sort of features do the doctors look for?

My husband had his sperm analysis today; what sort of features do the doctors look for?

Depends: Depends on why he is having the semen analysis. For post-vasectomy, we are looking for the number of sperm present and whether or not they are active or inactive (immotile). For infertility work-up, it much more complex. Some things we look at include semen quantity in ml, number of sperm per ml present, activity level of sperm, presence of fructose, etc. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my sperm analysis result volumr 4.5 count 62 million 40% motile 50 % nonmotile 10% slugish morphalogy 85% normal 15% obnormal is thst norm?

Normal...: Your result of semen analysis is in its normal range. Of course, discuss this set of findings with your ordering doctor so to correlate with your clinical profile.

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

Semen split out instead of shooting, does it affect fertility. I have done sperm analysis and everything looks good. Do i need to worry?

No worry,: The shooting features of semen at ejaculation, which reflect the intensity of contraction of seminal vesicles and prostate urethra, but may vary from time to time and lessen as we age, should pose no negative impact to the odd to conceive if all other related conditions in you and partner are acceptable. So, do not worry this aspect. More? Contact me at www.healthtap.com/dr-Lin ...Read more

Hi, 31y, male. Low sperm analysis results. My blood results for : s-tsh - 1.05 miu/l; FSH - 14.9 iu/l; LH - 12.6 iu/l. Where could the problem lie?

Hi, 31y, male. Low sperm analysis results. My blood results for : s-tsh - 1.05 miu/l; FSH - 14.9 iu/l; LH - 12.6 iu/l. Where could the problem lie?

Testicular problem: Your lh and fsh levels are elevated. This is consistent with a problem with your testicles producing both testosterone and sperm. There are many possible causes for this including genetic (klinefelters syndrome), infections (mumps), trauma, drugs. Many times we don't know why it occurred. You should see a urologist for evaluation. ...Read more
