I did spermogram test And I got 300 000 000 numeration dans l'ejaculation And its writen that it should be 50 millions* It is normal? Thanks doctor
Yes: I cannot tell from your question whether your 300 million sperm was your count per ml OR your total sperm count in the submitted ejaculate. Either way, 300 million sperm/ml would be at the upper range of normal and 300 million total sperm would be well within the normal range. Progressive sperm motility >32% and total motility >40% also an important parameter. ...Read more
My husband spermogram shows that he has >nighty nine % of sperms are vacuoles. What does that mean. Can we have a baby through ivf. And is their a treat?

Use testicular sperm (surgically retrieved sperm) instead of ejaculated sperm. 3. Donor sperm. ...Read more

No inflammation: ESR, or erythrocyte sedimentation rate, is a measure of inflammation and is commonly ordered with a C-Reactive protein. A normal ESR is usually less than 15-20, but can depend on the lab which performed the test. If you have a normal ESR, you are not likely to have an inflammatory process. The ESR is not a test for a specific problem, so it would be best to know why the test was ordered. ...Read more

There are definitely some tests that can be falsely elevated if you have crohn's disease. The one that comes to mind is the blood test for celiac disease (ttg) which can be elevated in crohn's. But you cannot make a blanket statement about all tests. Sorry. ...Read more
