I have immotile cilia syndrome (pcd) I have 50% chance of having children and won't know till i try. I'm 20 years old- what age is best for me to try?

KARTAGENER'S SYND.??: Does kartagener's syndrome sound like the condition you have been told that you have? If you have frequent respiratory infections, you porbably do. In this condition, the cilia in the fallopian tues do not function and infertility is very usually the result. If you are not pregnant in 6 months, you will need in vitro fertilization, which in my experience, is a very successful treatment. ...Read more

Is 45% immotile on sperm test bad ?

Is 45% immotile on sperm test bad 
?

Semen testing: The various tests included with semen testing (count, motility, morphology, etc.) all have some correlation with male fertility, but virtually none are absolute indicators of infertility. So, a decreased motility result still has a reasonable chance of resulting in a pregnancy over time. There are statistics for each value, but the variations are wide. ...Read more

Count is 10 million .. Slugghish motile sperm 25%... Using this  immotile sperm will icsi success ? Already we have 2 failed icsi ..

It should work!: Icsi (injecting a sperm into an egg) bypasses poor motility and should succeed. If you have failed two ivf/icsi cycles, i strongly suggest you defer a third cycle, gather up your records, and undergo a second opinion consult at a facility that has a high ivf success rate (you can see mine, for example, at: http://ivfmd.Com/eng/statistics_1.Htm most of my patients conceive on cycle #1! ...Read more

See answer : If you compare the results with the 2010 world health organization reference values for normal semen parameters, this semen sample is close to being within normal limits: sperm count very good, morphology adequate, and motility and vitality slightly low. Not knowing any further details, might consider a repeat semen sample at some point given variability that can occur. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My husband sperm count is  67millionl/ml, Rapid motile 9% & Slow  motile 43% &  non-progressive motile  8% & Immotile 40% can I get pregnant or not?

Sperm Count: Based solely on motility there is a very poor number of his sperm that are mobile. This does not mean you can't get pregnant, just that you may need some help. I would have your husband see a urologist first and see if there is anything they can do. After that you may want to consider insemination of concentrated samples of your husbands semen. Talk to your OB about that. Best Wishes. ...Read more

4.5 ml vol semen collection with 40% rapid 13% slow 42% immotile 5% nonprogressive and 95% abnormal. Motility is 300.2 sperm count 115.0. Infertile?

See your doctor: Typically 2-3 semen analyses are obtained over 3 months before any final conclusion is made regarding baseline quality and quantity. Commonly used values: volume>2.0 ml, ph 7.2-7.8, concentration >20 x 10^6/ml, motility >50%, morphology >30% with normal morphology, WBC <1 x 10^6/ml. Based on your values, fertility may be very challenging, but your doctor can help rule out causes, such as infection. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Your semen analysis is not that bad although some figures such as motility, shape, etc are marginal. As to using gonadil, etc., their effects for male fertility & spermatogenesis are not observed in humans, at most, suggesting in animal study, which hasn't been known ever existed. So, ask your doc for detail & specifics about fertility timely. ...Read more
