My partner did a semen test in 2009 and it came out low sperm. Did another one 2014 it came no sperm count. What could that please help?

See my remark: I don't know how old is your partner. If his sperm count was low 5 yrs ago, why did you wait 5 yrs before repeating it?
Please have him consult with a urologist specializing in

Semen analysis: Your sperm volume is borderline low, sperm count is low normal, your motility is low and your morphology is normal. If you are having an infertility problem which I guess is why you had the test, you may want to repeat the test and make sure that you collect the specimen completely into a sterile container and have it examined within an hour of collection. Abstain from intercourse for 48-72 hrs. ...Read more

Does the amount of semen my boyfriend let out when we have sex have anything to do with how high or low the sperm count is? Men with low semen volume

See below: Normal semen volume ranges from two to six ml. In one study involving >1, 000 men over a 20-year period, there was no correlation between sperm volume and pregnancy rate. In general, sperm count is the more important factor. Certainly, abnormally low semen volume <2 ml can be associated with infertility. Potential causes: poor semen collection; psychological, ejaculation dysfunction or obstruction. ...Read more

What do you advise if I'm suffering from erectile dysfunction and less sperm count and low amount of semen, what I have to do?

Is it possible to have a very low sperm count on a bad ejaculation and a good count the next time? I done a seman analysis and it came back at 3

Here are some. ..: Minor variation in semen volume and sperm count is normally expected depending on the frequency and intensity of sexual arousal and ejaculation. To verify what is in your semen, why don't you repeat semen analysis twice in 2-4 weeks apart by following professional instruction - no ejaculation for 3 days so to avoid second guessing and anxiety for uncertainty.

How many sperm count does it have to take inorder to impregnate? And how many drops of semen? Thanks!

How many sperm count does it have to take inorder to impregnate? And how many drops of semen? Thanks!

One: While it only takes one sperm to impregnate an egg, men are considered to have a low sperm count when there are less than 15 million sperm/milliliter. For comparison, there are 5 milliliters in a teaspoon. Present day average sperm count is 20 -40 million/ml (this number has been declining for decades). A drop is (about) 0.05 ml, so 30 million x. 05 equals 1.5 million/drop. ...Read more

Reducing ejaculations to once every 4-7 days may help, avoiding tight underwear, saunas, jacuzzis (basically anything which raises the temperature of the testicles). Quitting smoking and reducing alcohol will also benefit, and avoid putting your laptop on your lap! ...Read more

Am I become a father if my semen report is 32mil sperm count and motility is 20%?

Yes: Yes you most definitely can become father with that kind of semen analysis. I say this because your sperm count is normal, and your motility is low. The motility can be affected by issues such as how soon after you produce the specimen was it processed. I would repeat the semen analysis. Cheer up, make sure you produce the specimen and handed to them within 30 min. ...Read more
