See answer: Though there is likely some degree of variation from one individual to the next, daily or more frequent ejaculation is likely to diminish to some degree the quantity and quality of the sperm and therefore "potentially" the fertility as well. It is generally felt that 48-72 hours is the ideal time interval to maximize sperm and semen quality. If not trying to conceive, frequency is not an issue. ...Read more
Can you tell if sperm is fertile based on its consistancy? Like liquid clear flowing sperm vs thick white tacky sperm?
Improve sperm qual: I agree with others but let me add that there are lifestyle changes that can improve sperm quality. Stop smoking, decrease alcohol, avoid heat situations like hot tubs, saunas and baths; extreme sports can also be a problem. If you are a body builder then no steroids or supplements with androgens (tricky, so read labels carefully). Sperm cycle is 75d, so change takes a while to see results. ...Read more
Semen Analysis info: The semen analysis is performed on a fresh specimen within 2 hours of collection. Before testing, a period of 2-4 days of abstinence from ejaculation is recommended. The specimen is best collected by masturbation into a sterile container.

Automated systems are available for semen analysis. ...Read more

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

Discuss with the doctor who advised the semen culture. ...Read more

My sperm is not hot, before it was hot, dose it impact on fertility. I got married 4 months ago but not get any results in manners of permanency?
Please restate Q: I don't understand your phrase "hot" in reference to sperm. Are you speaking of temperature? Temperature of sperm should not affect fertility although temperature of your testes might (better to be cooler than warmer). Assuming that you didn't have sex until you got married last month (congratulations! By the way), that's not enough time to get pregnant even if you have sex several times daily. ...Read more
