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.

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.

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?

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

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
